The nomination for this award should be made by the student's research advisor. Each advisor may nominate only one student and only after the advisor has registered for the conference. Students can win this award only once during the course of their studies. Students selected are expected to act as scribes in the sessions of the conference.

The nomination package should include:

  • A single page resume, highlighting the student's accomplishments (publications, presentations, awards, other innovations, etc.)
  • A single page recommendation letter from the faculty advisor

Awards will be determined based on the strength of the student’s record and the advisor’s recommendation, as well as based on the potential of the student to contribute to and benefit from the discussions during the conference (for example, as judged by the relevance of the student’s research to the themes of the conference). The review and selection process will be carried out by a committee consisting (in equal numbers) of FIPSE trustees and members representing the sponsoring companies.

Deadline: Nominations are due on March 31, 2018. The nomination material should be sent electronically as a single PDF file to: Prodromos Daoutidis at

The award recipients will be announced by April 30, 2018.
