AIMS-IBA Best Paper Competition


The award selection committee of AIMS International will select the three best papers from those submitted for presentation at the conference. The committee, at its discretion, may recommend additional papers for consolation prizes. Interested individuals must agree to present their paper in-person at the conference (in-absentia papers are not eligible) and receive award at the Award Ceremony.
