On behalf of the SEAA Executive, it is my pleasure to announce the winners of the Student Award program. The award is given in conjunction with SEAA’s conferences and is made to two undergraduate and two graduate students on the basis of their submitted research papers. Each award consists of a $1000 cash prize, along with complimentary conference registration and four-year membership in SEAA. The Student Award committee which reviewed the papers pointed to the overall high quality of the submitted papers in both the undergraduate and graduate student categories.
All four of the awardees will be recognized and will present their winning paper in a special session to be held at the next SEAA conference in Nanjing. We look forward to your presence at this event.
Once again, congratulations to the winners and thank you to the many undergraduate and graduate students who took the time to submit a paper to the Student Award program. We look forward to meeting all of you at the next conference in Nanjing.
