While submitting full papers is not required for EBES Conferences, only completed papers accepted for presentation will be eligible for the Best Paper Award. In order to be considered for the award, completed papers must be submitted before December 20, 2023 and at least one of the authors has to register for the conference. The best and two runner-up papers are selected by EBES’s Award Committee. The winner will receive “Best Paper Award Certificate” and a €500 Springer gift voucher which can be used to purchase books on SpringerLink. The two runner-up papers will receive “Runner-up Award Certificate”, second-place winner will receive €300 Springer gift voucher and third-place winner will receive €200 Springer gift voucher which can be used to purchase books on SpringerLink.
The award winner papers (best and two runner-ups) can also be published in either EAER or EABR after review process. During registration, authors will be asked if they want their paper(s) to be considered for the award. Submission of a paper for the award implies that the work described has not been published before, it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else, its submission has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. EBES or its journals will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.
