SING Best Student Paper Prize

The SING Best Student Paper Prize is established to provide incentives for young researchers to write good papers and submit them to the SING meetings.
The prize is awarded every year at the SING meeting.

The SING Best Student Paper Prize is awarded to young researchers.
