2013 Annual Meeting Best Paper Awards
The Carolyn Dexter and William H. Newman Awards are partially selected by a specific submission process and dedicated award committees. Each paper is self-nominated through the Academy's abstract submission entry portal to the division or interest group of their choice. Each of the twenty-four divisions or interest group program chairs then nominates one paper to the respective award committee. From this pool, the committees formally review and select recipients for the awards.
