Publication Award (Graduates)

For: Graduates



The Excellence in Publication Award is designed to encourage publication by CEN graduate students in peer-reviewed scientific journals and books (chapters). Publications must have "accepted" status to qualify for this award. Students have two years following the final submission of their thesis to apply for the Publication Excellence Award. The student must be the first author of a publication based on work carried out at CEN. The CEN must appear in the author's affiliation.

Please note that articles published in conference proceedings will not be awarded the Publication Excellence Award, but rather the Presentation Award’s $100 bonus.
