Award regulations

    1. Student paper authors have to apply for the award, or being nominated by a co-author or Professor before August 23, 2002, to the local organizing committee of the 3rd ISUD.
    2. To be eligible, candidates (first author of the paper) must be registered as a full-time student at a higher educational institution at undergraduate, master, or doctoral level.
    3. Exceptionally, doctorates that finished recently their work are eligible if at the date of submission of their paper, their PhD thesis is not more than six months old and the presented work related to the dissertation.
    4. The nominated papers must be among the papers submitted and accepted for the Symposium and printed in the proceedings.
    5. The papers will be distributed among the Jury for grading by each member.
    6. Grading goes between 1 and 10, 10 being the maximum.
    7. Grading should take into account significance of the topic chosen, originality, writing style, the author's ability to situate it in a theoretical framework and within the development of the discipline, solidity and rigour of argumentation, clarity, organization and conciseness, and the overall contribution of the paper.
