Best Young Academic Paper


CIRED will give awards to the best papers written by young academics

To be eligible, author 1 ("authors and affiliations" in the submission form) must be a student (master or PhD student) having spent less than 8 years at university.

CIRED will select up to six papers (no more than one for each session).

The award is a commendation stating that the recipient has won the “Best Young Academic Paper Award”.

The winning paper selected for each session will be offered the chance to present their work as an oral presentation within their session. The duration and time of this presentation will be set by the respective session chairs.

The participation and registration of the author in the conference is mandatory to present the paper.
