Student Paper Competition

The Pulsed Power Conference Committee will award the two best student papers presented at the conference. The purpose of these awards is to encourage student participation in the conference and to acknowledge the importance of student-led contributions in the pulsed power area. The best papers are expected to present in-depth research and analysis and demonstrate strong understanding of the research topic. The presenting student must be the principal author and should be able to articulate their individual contribution to the overall research project.

Application for this award is done during the abstract submission process by self-identifying as a student submission. Based upon the strengths of the abstracts, a short list of finalists will be created, and those authors will be contacted by the committee by the end of Aril. Finalists must then send a recommendation letter from the advisor to the student paper award coordinator, Heather O’Brien. Finalists will be required to present their papers in-person in a special session during the conference, and the winners will be awarded at the conference banquet.

More details about the paper competition will be posted here as the conference draws near.
