Award of Excellence for Best Seminar Paper
The Award was established through an anonymous donation by an ISASI member who wished to acknowledge a paper at the annual seminar that made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of technical methodologies in aircraft accident investigation. The Award of Excellence for the Best Paper presented at the annual ISASI Seminar was established at the September 2005 International Council Meeting. The first award was made in 2006. The Excellence selection carries a US$500 prize. The Award is judged on applicability to the seminar theme, oral presentation, graphic support of the paper, and presentation within the time allotted.
