US-IALE annually presents a "Best Student Presentation Award" to a
student for the outstanding oral paper or poster given at the
Society's annual meeting. The winner will receive a monetary award and
a plaque commemorating the award. Students interested in having their
presentation considered for the "Best Student Presentation Award" must
mark the relevant checkbox when they submit their offered abstract for
the conference. If any students have questions about the award process,
please contact Anita Morzillo at
Best Student Presentation Award - Update!!! (December 2008)
Students who would like to have their presentation considered for the "Best Student Presentation Award" must indicate their interest in the appropriate location on the conference registration form. To be eligible, students must be 1) be registered for the conference by the early registration deadline of 29 March 2009, and 2) an active member of US-IALE (i.e., membership dues paid for 2009). Students are eligible to be considered for a best student presentation award only once per degree program and must be enrolled in the same degree program at the time of the conference that is relevant to their abstract. In order for judges to best evaluate student presentations that will be most competitive, it is encouraged that students only enter this competition if they have completed or nearly completed research results.
Attached here is the form that will be used by judges for evaluating student presentations. Students are advised to review the evaluation form when preparing their presentations.
Visit the "Just for Students" sidebar link for details.
Abstracts for the 2009 US-IALE are now closed. Please contact the Program Chair, Thomas Edwards, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
