Outstanding Paper Award

The Outstanding Paper Award is presented to the author(s) of a paper published in the UFFC-S Transactions which exemplifies excellent technical contributions and is clearly written. The winner is selected on the basis of: originality, interest to the membership, contributions to the field, clarity of writing, and timeliness. Selection is made by the Awards Committee. Nominations and comments from the Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editors and Guest Editors of the Transactions are solicited.

Papers are reviewed as a group for each Volume of the UFFC-S Transactions (January through December). In a given year, usually one paper is selected, but the Awards Committee may chose to give no award or multiple awards when circumstances warrant. Presentation is usually at one of the Society’s major symposia.

The award consists of a plaque and a certificate.

(Award was first presented in 1956)
