At a conference it is typical that “Best Paper” awards are handed out. At this particular conference, there were two “Best Paper” awards:
1. Faculty Track
2. Student Track
Both awards were based on the level of rigor demonstrated in the paper. The faculty track paper that was chosen had – in the opinion of the reviewers – the strongest research methodology. This, in turn, resulted in statistical results that supported the theoretical basis of the work. The faculty winner (pictured below) is Agnieszka Sitko-Lutek of M.Curie Sklodwska University in Poland. The student winner, Katie Leone of Chatham University, submitted a paper based on her thesis. It too exhibited a high level of academic rigor.
