Conference Best Paper Awards


Conference Best Paper Award will be selected based on the initial review process of the extended abstracts followed by reviewing the Proceedings Papers and visitation (by unidentified judges) during the presentation of candidate papers. The final assessment and selection criteria will be based on several key parameters including: technical quality of the paper, authors’ knowledge of the field, presentation effectiveness and clarity, engagement in substantive Q/A, etc.  

The paper MUST be presented by one of its authors.  

The winners of the First and Second place papers will be announced at the Awards Luncheon on Wednesday of the conference week.
