Best Paper Awards

JCDL has two awards for papers; the Vannevar Bush Best Paper award for the overall best paper at the conference. In addition, there is the Best Student Paper award for a paper where the lead author is a student.

Nominations come from the Program Committee, and then a Best Paper Selection Committee selects the final awardees.  This year’s selection committee is being chaired by Lillian Cassel (Villanova University) with members Lee Giles (Pennsylvania State University), Geneva Henry (Rice University) and Gary Marchionini (University of North Carolina at Chappel Hill).

All papers are eligible for the overall best paper. Those papers where the lead author is a student are considered for the best student paper award. This year’s selection committee is being chaired by Lillian Cassel.  The awards will be given at the conference dinner on Wednesday, June 15th.
