5TH IEEE CiSt 2018 BEST PAPER AWARDS
To recognize the very best, of the submitted papers, outstanding technical contributions, as evidenced by the quality of papers, their presentations, and their technical excellence, IEEE CiSt 2018 will award best research paper awards, for the congress and its focused conferences. The award includes a certificate suitable for framing. The authors of each best paper award will be recognized at the congress gala event.
Papers from the congress and the conferences are nominated for the best research paper award. The nominations will be made by the corresponding conference chairs, and the nominated papers will be drawn from the top 10 papers based on the reviews scores.
Any paper accepted in the congress or in one of the conferences, with the exception that program committee chairs and conference chairs are not eligible for a best paper award in their own conference. In addition:
One of the authors of each of the semi-finalist papers is required to attend the congress and present the paper in its corresponding conference.
A jury panel will judge each paper on the presenting author’s effective oral presentation, and on the quality, and technical merit, of the paper itself.
The jury panel constitutes an independent awards committee (with one member representing each conference). Its mission is to evaluate the nominated papers and select the winners of the best research paper awards. Representatives to the best paper awards committee are appointed by the congress chairs before papers are nominated for an award, and it will be ensured that no member of the best paper awards committee was being considered for the award. The selection process is supervised by the chair of the best paper awards committee and the IEEE CiSt 2018 congress chairs.
