How it happens during our events

1. Best Event Paper Winner

You've been through this before, your paper has passed the gauntlet of submission, selection, and award by a jury. It is automatically entered to as a nominee for the Best Paper of the Year.

2. Selection

You don't have to do anything more. Your paper will be reviewed again by a jury which will weigh it against other award nominees from the active season in order to make a comparative selection.

3. Decision Time

Once the jury has made their selection known, there will be an award ceremony at our flagship event of the season in order to let the entire community know who is the worthy winner.
