For the 2015 competition, students should submit a paper (pdf file written in English) by 15 March 2015. The winner of the award will be announced at Sunbelt XXXV in 2015. To be eligible, the student must be the first (or sole) author on the submitted paper at the time of submission.

Papers are evaluated by a committee based on the level of originality in the ideas and techniques, the possible applications and their treatment, and potential impact. The committee may arrive at the conclusion that none of the submitted papers merits the award. The monetary prize for the best student paper is $2,500.
