To recognize outstanding works at the IESM 2019 conference in Shanghai, China, September 25-27, 2019, we will select three best papers out of them and award the selected ones one of the following three best paper awards.
• Best Conference Paper(s)
• Best Application Paper(s)
• Best Student Paper(s)
For Best Conference Paper, theoretical contribution shall be emphasized. For Best Application Paper, we mainly consider its (potential) applications in specific industries. For Best Student Paper, it is required that the first author of the best student paper must be a Master and Doctoral student at the time of submission. Any paper can only be selected for at most one of the awards.
For candidates who will compete for the Best Student Paper award, some assistance by other individuals such as the student’s faculty advisor is permitted as long as the student is the real “first author”. This must be confirmed by an accompanying advisor’s letter. The letter shall be emailed to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org than submitting it as an attachment in the Easychair paper submission system.
Paper selection criteria: Factors to be considered include clarity of expression, originality of the work, technical merit, potential impact on the field, practical significance of the application.
Organization: A limited number of candidate papers for the above three best paper awards will be recommended by reviewers, based on their excellent review assessments. The program committee will review the candidate papers and determine the final winners. The winners will be announced during the gala dinner, on Sept. 26, 2019.
