EuroEM – Best student paper award



The BSPA is given to up to two outstanding papers whose first author is a student and granted based on a full paper submitted and presented in addition to the regularly extended abstract required for the conference. In what follows we describe the criteria and process for the election of the grantees.

The main author must be a full-time student (BSc, M.Sc., Ph.D. student) at the date of submission of the paper.
The paper must present original results.
The paper must not have been presented/submitted to another conference or journal (although we won’t ask for the copyright, they can submit the paper to another conference afterward).
The research must have been conducted by the main author while he was a student.

The author postulates its work to the BSPA at the moment of submitting the extended abstract through the online process.
The BSPA committee (BSPAC) will ask for full papers after selecting the best five extended abstracts.
The award(s) will be given during the plenary session of the conference (no more than two awards).


(until) mid-March 2020
Authors submit their extended abstract through the online submission system.

Mid-March 2020
The president of the BSPAC sends the postulated abstracts to the members of the BSPAC.

The members of the BSPAC will select a maximum of five abstracts suggested by the evaluators.

Mid-April 2020
