Best Paper Awards
In 1955, Rubber Division, ACS created a Best Paper Committee with the objective of improving the quality of technical presentations by evaluating and publicly recognizing outstanding presentations. This award recognizes those individuals authoring and presenting papers at Rubber Division, ACS meetings. Each award consists of a plaque and recognition at our Business & Awards meeting during our International Elastomer Conference.
Selections for these awards are made by the Best Paper Committee on the recommendation of a number of peer judges who review the individual papers and attend the technical sessions. Clarity of presentation and significance of technical content are of prime importance to the judges.
