Awards (PPC)

The PPC’s Technical Program Committee will honor the two best student papers presented at the conference. The purpose of these awards is to encourage both outstanding student contributions and greater student participation as principal or sole authors of papers, as well as to acknowledge the importance of student contributions to the fields embraced by the NPSS umbrella. The two best submissions will receive cash awards of $500 and a certificate.

To qualify for consideration the student must self-identify their interest for inclusion when they upload their abstract. They should have a supporting letter from their supervisor sent to the student paper contest coordinator (see below). Any student who is the principal author/researcher and the presenter of either an oral or poster paper at the PPC-2021 conference and who has been identified as a student author will be eligible. Please note only one entry is allowed per student.

The deadline for submitting letters is September 1, 2021.

The work presented should be the majority work of the student and will be judged on grounds of originality, value to the community and delivery. A judging panel of four will be chosen to represent the breadth of the PPC community.

More details about the PPC Student Paper Contest will be posted as we get closer to the conference. The winning papers will be announced at the conference banquet.
