Category: Theoretical Paper

Category: Application Paper

Selection Process

During the regular review process, reviewers had the option to nominate any paper they reviewed for the Best Paper Award. This selection process identified 8 papers for the award. The papers were further reviewed in a double blind fashion. The names and affiliations of the authors were removed from the papers. A six member team including the technical program committee then reviewed all papers and categorized each paper in either the Application or Theory categories. The papers were scored (on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest) for a set of criteria such that a paper could score a maximum of 100. The criteria and their corresponding weights assigned were Content (3), Significance (5), Technical validity (3), Innovation (3), Writing style (1), Accuracy (1), Clarity (2), Simplicity (1), and Readability (1) . The scores from all the judges were aggregated to get the final score and a majority rule was applied to determine the category of the paper. Finally, the paper that scored highest in each category was selected as the Best Paper.
