Best Paper Award
Simulation Australia presents a Best Paper award each year at SimTecT for the paper that best addresses the themes of each conference, contributes to the value of the conference proceedings, providing new ideas and /or innovative approaches to the diverse field of simulation. Each year the winner of the Best Paper Award is a guest of I/ITSEC in Orlando and presents their SimTecT paper in a special panel session. The Paper Review Committee can also select one or more Best Student Paper awards. This entitles the winners to present a further paper at the next SimTecT conference.
