Please read the following instructions carefully before preparing a paper for submission. Failure to follow all instructions below will result in the removal of the paper from the competition and its placement in the regular submission paper pool.

"Previously , we presented an antenna that..."

"Previously, Chen  presented an antenna that..."
In this way, the full citation to Chen  can still be given, for example:
 Chen, J., "Analysis of antenna with ...
A sample paper has been provided in its two versions. The first paper shows the paper submitted for the regular program, while the second paper shows the paper submitted for the double blind review evaluation.
Please note that these examples use older templates; the correct templates can be found here. Questions regarding the preparation and submission of papers for the competition should be directed to the APS Student Paper Competition Committee at email@example.com.
