MARE Student Paper Award 2009

This year the MARE conference will give an award for the best student paper. A special jury will review the papers and select the best paper. The announcement of the Best Student Paper Award will be held during the conference.

Full papers to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award should be submitted one week before the conference starts. Only papers that are being presented during the MARE Conference can be submitted for the Award. Bachelor, Master, as well as PhD students can apply for the Award.

Deadline for sending in the full papers for the Best Student Paper Award:

Wednesday 1st of July 2009

Before sending in your full paper for the Best Student Paper Award, please read the “guide for authors” carefully.

Opportunity for publication of conference papers

There are two outlets for publication of papers presented at the 2009 conference.

  1. The author can submit their complete paper to be considered for publication (with peer review) in MAST, the journal of the Centre for Maritime Research, University of Amsterdam.
  2. We envision several books to emerge from the conference through the MARE publication series.

All authors are invited to submit their full papers online prior to the conference, or during the conference registration at the dedicated stand.

Authors should indicate during submission as to their preference for publication, and also whether they consent for their work to appear on the conference website.

Once your abstract has been accepted for our conference we expect that you will attend the conference. We therefore request that you register and pay the conference fees before 31 March, 2009. Failure to do so will normally result in removal of your paper from the programme. Refunds are allowed only in exceptional cases. In case you want to withdraw your paper from our conference, we ask you to inform us promptly.
