To encourage young researchers in the area of Technology Management, PICMET announces that up to three papers will receive the Outstanding Student Paper Award at PICMET ’13. The winners will be invited to present their papers at the conference.

Papers must be based on the student’s research toward a graduate degree and must be nominated by the advising professor. Eligibility is restricted to currently enrolled students and those who have completed the master’s or doctorate no earlier than July 31, 2011.

The deadline for nominations is February 28, 2013.

Evaluation criteria include:

  • Contribution to engineering and technology management
  • Significance of the topic
  • Clarity of the paper
  • Accuracy of the method, findings, analysis and conclusions

The award consists of:

  • $1,000 to cover travel expenses and free conference registration for the awardee
  • Free conference registration for the advising/nominating professor
  • A certificate of recognition for both the awardee and the advising/nominating professor

In case of multiple-author papers, the cash award will be divided among the authors, but each author will receive free registration and a certificate.
