Awards

There are two kinds of awards prepared by WPTCE2024, Best Paper Award (BPA) and Best Student Paper Award (BSPA).

Best Paper Award (BPA):

The Best Paper Award (BPA) winners are selected by two steps.
All the papers submitted to WPTCE2024 are peer-reviewed, and some outstanding papers selected based on evaluation results will be listed as “Best Paper Award Finalists“.
The finalists are requested to participate in the conference and give an oral presentation for the selected papers. An award evaluation board will be formed to select the Best Paper Award winners from the finalists based on their evaluations for the oral presentations by the finalists. The winners of the awards will be announced in the Closing Session to be held on May 11 2024.

Best Paper Award Finalists:

The following six papers have been selected as the BPA finalists.

Best Student Paper Award (BSPA):

Being eligible to compete for Best Student Paper Award (BSPA), the first author and the corresponding author of that paper must be a student at the time of paper submission.
The BSPA winners are selected by two steps.
All the papers submitted to WPTCE2024 are peer-reviewed, and some outstanding papers selected based on evaluation results will be listed as “Best Student Paper Award Finalists“.
The finalists are requested to participate in the conference and give an oral presentation for the selected papers. In addition, the student author of the selected papers must give a “poster” presentation during the Poster Session 1 to be held from 13:30 to 15:00 on Friday, May 10, 2024. An award evaluation board will be formed to select the Best Student Paper Award winners from the finalists, based on their evaluations for the poster presentations by the finalists. The winners of the awards will be announced in the Closing Session to be held on May 11 2024.
