An award will be given for the best student paper at ICCM20. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible, provided that he or she is enrolled at a university at the time of submitting the abstract and is the first author and presenter of the paper. Students may be nominated by their advisors or themselves by following the instructions provided below. Abstract and Paper will be submitted in the same way as the conference submissions. The deadline for applications is the same as the full paper submission deadline.

Two regional finalists will be selected from each of the three ICCM world regions and invited to present their papers in a special session named “Tsai Best Student Paper” in Copenhagen. The winner will receive a free ticket for the banquet where they will be presented with the award and €500. The selection will be based on both the quality of the paper and the presentation. Those submissions that are not selected to present at the Tsai Best Student Paper session will be treated as a regular paper submitted to the conference.

Selecting guidelines

1. The technical merit of the work is the most important. The papers will be judged on the clarity and conciseness of the statement of the objectives of the work, and the clarity and conciseness of the statement of the approaches, procedures, and methodologies for achieving these objectives.

2. A summary of important conclusions should be included, and these should be substantiated. The significance of the findings, how they contribute to the state of the art, and how they relate to the work of other investigators should be easily determined from the writing.

3. Effective use of tables and figures, and ease of understanding them, including units, dimensions, legends, labels, symbol and line types and colors, etc., will be considered. 4. Presentation quality includes clarity, organization, audio-visual quality, and timing.

Submission Instructions

The deadline was 16 December. We are now in the selecting process. You will be informed by email the latest by 30 April if your abstract has been selected for the Tsai Best Student Paper session.
