ISIT Student Paper Award
The ISIT Student Paper Award is given to up to 3 outstanding papers for which a student is the principal author and presenter. This author must be a registered student of an educational institution at the time of paper submission to be eligible. The criteria for the award includes both content and presentation. The award consists of a $500 honorarium to be divided equally between all student authors of the paper, and a plaque for each student author.
The Awards Committee is responsible for selecting the winners with the support of the ISIT TPC. The ISIT TPC recommends between 8 and 12 papers as finalists to the Awards Committee. The Awards Committee selects up to 6 papers as finalists. The Awards Committee judges the presentations, selects the winners, and announces the winners at the ISIT banquet.
