Student paper awards

Ph.D. students who are the presenting authors of papers are eligible to apply to the student paper awards. The number of awards and their monetary value will be determined later. In addition to scientific merit, the selection of the winners will take into account the role of the student in the paper (e.g., a single-authored paper by a student will have an advantage over a co-authored paper, and a paper in which the student is the first author will have an advantage over one in which the student is the third author).
