IISE OR Division Undergraduate Student Research Dissemination Award
The goal of this award is to recognize scholarly work as well as ability to effectively communicate results from an undergraduate student or student team.
The first author of the paper must be a full-time undergraduate student at the time of submission. The paper must present original research conducted while the applicant was a student.
The winner is decided based both on their written paper and their oral presentation. Finalists are selected before ISERC, but the winner is determined at ISERC.
All finalists received cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the amounts of $400, $200, and $100 respectively!
This year the award was jointly sponsored by University of Arkansas and Rochester Institute of Technology.
Many thanks to this year's judges: Omar Aponte, Vishnunarayan Girishan Prabhu, and Zhijie (Sasha) Dong.
