Best Student Paper awards

IAFPA traditionally hosts the Best Student Paper Award, and Prague will be no exception. However, two prizes will be awarded this year: one for the best paper and one for the best poster. Both winners of this Prize win free registration for next year’s IAFPA conference.

The criteria for participation are:

  • the first author is a student, i.e. registered as a Bachelors/Masters/PhD student
  • the first author presents his/her presentation/poster in person at the conference
  • the majority of the work presented has been done by the student

Note that being a student member of IAFPA is not a requirement.

Please indicate in your abstract whether your paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper award.
