(1) Conference awards

Two awards will be offered at IST 2019: one for best paper and another for best poster. The best paper award will target emerging and early career scholars, whereas the best poster award will be open to all poster presenters. The winners will be acknowledged during a plenary session on the final day of the conference.

To be considered for the Best Paper Award, we ask that scholars: (1) meet the eligibility requirements, (2) fill out a self-nomination form, and (3) return the completed form along with a blind/anonymized copy of their paper (Word or PDF format) to the conference organizers at IST2019@carleton.ca by June 3rd.
