Computer & Information Systems (CIS) Division Best Student Paper Competition

The IIE-CIS division solicits applications for the sixth annual CIS Best Student Paper Competition at the IIE Annual Conference & Expo to be held May 30 - June 2, 2015, in Nashville, Tenn.

In order to be qualified for the award, the students must: (a) submit a paper (invited or contributed) for the conference using the usual submission process, (b) fill out an application and (c) present their work at the conference. Candidate papers will come from those submitted to the CIS track and accepted through the regular submission process. The student must be the primary author (first author) of the paper as well as the presenting author. If multiple students are co-authors, all of their names should appear before their advisor(s) in the list of authors.

Only those who will be students (undergraduate or graduate students) on the application submission date are qualified for the best student paper. That means those who will graduate on or after May 2015 will be eligible for the award. Finally, at least one of the co-author students must be a current member of IIE and the CIS division at the time of paper submission to be eligible for the award.

After you have submitted a paper under the CIS track, send an application package by including the following information via email to the chair of the award committee, John Jung-Woon Yoo by March 6. 

  • Your name and contact information (email, telephone), department and university
  • Paper information (paper ID, title, list of authors)
  • Advisor's letter proving that you are the primary co-author of the paper and that you are eligible
  • Must be a member of IIE and the CIS division

The judges will evaluate the candidate papers and determine a winner by March 20.
