If needed, applicants have until Thursday February 28, 2013 to submit their final papers. However, this deadline only applies to a manuscript whose application met the December 3 deadline – there will be no applications accepted after December 3, 2012.
Judging and Award Distribution
Papers will first be judged and scored by the members of the ICS-US Section Scholarship Committee prior to the Annual Meeting to select the top candidates for presentation.
The top written presentations will be selected for participation in the On-site/final judging.
There are a limited number of speaking slots; applicants are not guaranteed an oral presentation at the meeting.
An additional panel of judges will be assembled at the conference to score the oral presentations.
Scores from both panels will be totaled and the winners selected from the top presentations.
Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the meeting.
