EWGAE Student Paper Award

The student award is presented to one or more students to recognize their outstanding academic achievement in a research project dealing with some aspect of acoustic emission technology, which may range in scope from fundamental research to industrial applications. Any current or recent (within one year) university or college student (including Master and PhD students) are eligible. Students must be enrolled in a university or college at the time of submission. The award will be evaluated based on the paper submitted by the student to the EWGAE conference. While it is understood that research does not take place in a vacuum, the work described should represent the student’s own efforts, and the student should be the first author of the conference contribution. The student must attend the AE meeting to receive the award (meeting registration fee is waived for the winning student) and must present the work orally during the conference. Selection of the winners is made by majority vote of the Awards Committee members following the listed criteria. The result of the awards will be announced during the gala dinner of the conference.
