IES Student Best Paper Award

Established: in 2006
Description: To recognize the student best paper in The Industrial Electronics Society publications and to encourage the student or graduate student author to contribute further in the field of industrial electronics. 



Administration: Administered by the Industrial Electronics Society Awards and Honor Committee (IES A&H Committee). 
Prize: Certificate, $1,000 and travel expense reimbursement for the award ceremony (limited to $2,000). In case of multiple authors the prize is to be shared among the awardees.. 
Funding: Funded by IEEE Industrial Electronics Society. 
Nominee Solicitation: The IES A&H Committee asks for nominations from the following: 
1.Chairs/Co-chairs and/or Technical Program Chairs of the society's major conferences. 
2. Editors-in-Chief of the society's all publications. 
Eligibility: Author(s) of papers in the Industrial Electronics Society publications during the year specified for the award, where the first author must be a student or a graduate student IEEE member. Must be student or graduate student member of the IEEE. 
Basis for Judging: The award paper will be selected based on the value of the contribution, subject matter, originality, and composition. Awarded only when suitable candidates are identified. Not necessarily awarded yearly. 
Presentation: At the Society's annual conference.
