Best Paper Award

Every other year, at the biennial conference, the KLI seeks to acknowledge excellence by awarding the best paper authored by a PhD student. The winner will receive 500 euros, and will be asked to present his or her paper at the KLI conference. In case the paper has been written by several PhD students, the award will be divided equally among these students.

Eligible are students who are a member of the KLI or were a member until at least a year before the current deadline, and who had not yet obtained their PhD a year before the deadline. Also, a PhD student must be first author of the paper he or she proposed, and each PhD student can participate only once.

The committee that evaluates the quality of the papers will be appointed by the Executive Committee. Most important criteria are (a) degree of innovation, (b) scientific importance and/or practical importance (c) quality of design and methods, and (d) general impression.

The next deadline for submitting papers will be the end of 2017/beginning of 2018. Please click here for the criteria for submitting a paper.
