Best Paper Awards

ote: The following Technical Committees will not sponsor Best Paper Awards at
Acoustics Virtually Everywhere: Animal Bioacoustics, Noise, Underwater Acoustics

Several ASA Technical Committees offer Best Paper Awards to students, young presenters, and early career presenters. For each award program the author must comply with the eligibility requirements that appear below.  For all awards, the eligible author’s name must appear as the first author of the abstract and must be the author who presents the paper at the meeting.

If you want your paper to be considered for an award, you must indicate this when you submit your abstract. Follow the instructions for the appropriate technical area that appear below.

ASA Best Student Paper Awards

Committees Offering These Awards: Acoustical Oceanography, Architectural Acoustics, Biomedical Acoustics, Engineering Acoustics, Musical Acoustics, Psychological and Physiological Acoustics (spring only), Signal Processing in Acoustics, Speech Communication, and Structural Acoustics and Vibration.

Award Amounts: For each of the Technical Committees granting awards, up to two awards will be presented to students presenting papers in sessions organized by the specific Technical Committee: USD $300 for first prize and USD $200 for second prize.

Qualifications:

To qualify for each of these awards, an author must:

  • be enrolled as a student at least half-time (graduates are eligible if the work being presented was performed as a student within one year of the meeting). Note that you do not need to be a member of the ASA to qualify.
  • be listed as the first author on the submitted abstract
  • present the paper at the meeting

Special Note for Speech Communication entries: Choose Poster Only as your preferred presentation type during the abstract submission process to be eligible for the Best Student Poster Award Competition for Speech Communication. If you do not choose ‘Poster Only’ and your paper is subsequently assigned to an oral presentation, you cannot be considered for the Best Student Poster Award Competition for Speech Communication.

Selection: The award winners will be selected by a subcommittee of each of the Technical Committees granting awards, based upon the quality of both the content of the paper and its presentation. The awards will be announced either at the meeting of the Technical Committee or after the close of the meeting.

Application: All those who wish to participate in the competition for these awards must indicate their intention to enter the competition during the abstract submission process by clicking the entry box on the online submission form.

Application: The Award Subcommittees would like to consider papers by all authors who meet the eligibility criteria. Neither membership in the Acoustical Society, nor previous experience in the ASA, is required. Because the committees have no other way to identify eligible authors, however, it is essential that eligible authors indicate their intention to enter the competition during the abstract submission process by clicking the entry box on the online submission form.

Biomedical Acoustics Student Paper Award

The ASA Technical Committee on Biomedical Acoustics offers a Best Student Poster Award. Students who enter the competition are expected to give an oral presentation in a regular/special session and defend a poster in a separate student poster session.

Abstracts submitted by students who elect to participate in the competition will be listed in the program in appropriate oral sessions. Please read the entry qualifications that appear below to be sure you are eligible and follow the instructions for entering the competition.

Award Amounts: Up to three awards will be presented to students presenting papers in sessions organized by the Technical Committee on Biomedical Acoustics and participating in the special student poster session: USD$500 for first prize, USD$300 for second prize, and USD$200 for third prize.

Qualifications:

To qualify for an award, a student must:

  • be enrolled as a student at least half-time (graduates are eligible if the work being presented was performed as a student within one year of the meeting). Note that you do not need to be a member of the ASA to qualify.
  • be listed as the first author on the submitted abstract
  • present the paper at the meeting
  • defend the poster at a special student poster session, which will be open to all attendees

Selection: The awardees will be selected by a panel of judges, based upon the quality of the content of the poster and a brief presentation to the judges during a designated poster session. The award winners will be announced either at the meeting of the Biomedical Acoustics Technical Committee or after the close of the meeting.

Application: All those who wish to participate in the competition must indicate their intention by clicking the entry box on the online abstract submission form. Additional details will be sent to entrants after the program has been organized.

Physical Acoustics Best Student Paper Award

The ASA Technical Committee for Physical Acoustics (PATC) is offering a Best Paper award for students presenting papers in sessions organized by PATC. The award will be based upon a written paper submitted to Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA).

Award Amounts: Up to two awards will be presented, USD $300 for first prize and USD $200 for second prize.

Qualifications: To qualify for the award, an author must:

  • be enrolled as a student at least half-time (graduates are eligible if the presented work was performed as a student within one year of the meeting). Note that you do not need to be a member of the ASA to qualify.
  • be listed as the first author on the submitted abstract and POMA manuscript
  • submit the POMA manuscript by the competition deadline, which is 18 days prior to the start of the meeting. For this meeting, manuscripts must be submitted on or before 20 November 2020
  • present the paper at the meeting

Selection: The award winner(s) will be selected by a subcommittee that will judge submitted POMA manuscripts based on technical content, writing quality, and overall excellence. The Best Paper award(s) will be announced at the PATC meeting. Note that the paper judging will take place concurrently with the ordinary editorial review of a POMA submission; each judged paper will be returned with comments and a publication decision.

Application: Those who intend to participate in the competition so indicate during the abstract submission process by clicking the entry box on the online submission form. Students will be contacted by the award subcommittee after abstracts have been accepted.
