In 2010, the IRMMW-THz Society Board voted to implement an annual “Best Student Paper Prize” to recognize original contributions to the conference from outstanding student attendees. A cash prize is awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place papers through a committee selection and voting process.
During the 2016 submission process, students had the opportunity to sign up for the competition for the Best Student Presentation Award during the conference. Based on the reviews of all these papers, the Award Committee has selected the IRMMW-THz 2016 Student Award finalists.
The finalists will present their work to the Student Award Committee in a closed session on Tuesday, September 27th. The winner will be announced and awards presented during the conference banquet on Wednesday, September 28th.

Candidates may apply for the award when they upload their conference abstracts. If they have more than one submission, students must choose only ONE paper for consideration.
To qualify, candidates must be full time students at the time of Abstract submission, they must have been fully responsible for the work that is being judged. If the student is shortlisted as a finalist, a letter or statement of support will be requested from their advisor that verifies their status as a student and their responsibility for the paper.
The International Advisory Board will review all the entries and preselect 6 candidates for individual presentations to a prize committee during a special session at the 2016 conference. Each candidate must present his/her paper in person at the session.
The time and location of the presentations will be communicated to the six finalists well in advance of the conference. All finalists are expected to attend the conference and make their presentations to the prize committee in order to qualify for one of the 3 awards.
