For the past few years, the Best Student Paper Award, sponsored by the IOP Journal of Smart Materials and Structures, consists of a Certificate and $250 dollars. A Committee of Cansmart's Board of Directors reviewed the submissions based on the following criteria:

  1. The first author of the paper is a student.
  2. The Committee evaluates the general quality of the paper including a clear and concise description of the work, the clarity of the language, the organization and completeness of the work.
  3. If the paper is to be considered, the supervisor or sponsor of the work should authorize the submission.
The Cansmart Board of Directors extends a warm thank you to the publisher of the IOP Journal of Smart Materials and Structures, Ms. Natasha Leeper who is always very supportive of Cansmart.
