Student Paper Competition

The CANCOM2019 conference organizers are excited to announce the Professor Suong V. Hoa Student Paper Award.

The Professor Suong V. Hoa Student Paper Award is valued as follows: 1st Place: $1000, 2nd $500 and 3rd $250.  The award ceremony will take place at the CANCOM19 reception, or banquet held at the Mission Hill Winery.

The competition consists of two rounds – paper and presentation competitions.  A total of 5 finalists will be selected based on originality, content, presentation, and language of their papers.  These finalists will give presentations at a special student competition session scheduled on July 24, 2019.  The three award winners will be selected by a panel of judges from industry, academia and government.  We are expecting chief engineers from major composites OEMs as well as faculty members to be on the judging panel for CANCOM2019.
