ANCOLD YOUNG PROFESSIONAL BEST PAPER AWARD
An award for the Young Professionals Best Paper is given each year to an ANCOLD Associate Member or Employee of a Member Organisation. Those members 35 or under at the commencement of the conference, who submit and present a paper would be eligible for the Young Professionals Best Paper award.
YPs are encouraged to submit papers as sole authors presenting their own work to enhance their chance of winning as their assessment score would be adjusted according to the number of co-authors, even if the co-authors are also YPs.
The winner is awarded a certificate and a contribution toward payment of registration fees, airfares and accommodation expenses to attend the subsequent Annual Conference.
The joint winners of the ANCOLD Young Professional Best Paper Award at the 2016 conference in Adelaide were Matthew Sentry from Geotech and Tom Reed from Snowy Hydro.
