ANCOLD YOUNG PROFESSIONAL BEST PAPER AWARD
ANCOLD welcomes and encourages young professionals to get involved and be active within the dams community. One of the easiest and best ways is to prepare a paper submission and presentation, for the annual conference. Not only do you contribute, but you also promote yourself, your company and the industry.
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 ANCOLD 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 ANCOLD Conference.
The winner of the Young Professional Best Paper award at the 2017 Conference in Hobart was Oliver Giudici from Hydro Tasmania.
