The IPPS Graduate Paper Prize

IPPS announces that for the first time, a graduate student paper prize will be awarded for the best graduate student paper presented at the conference. This competition is sponsored by the Society and by Brepols, and will be judged by a committee drawn from the Executive Board and the conference organizing committee. The winning paper will be noted in the program; in addition the winner will receive a certificate and citation presented during an award ceremony at the conference, and an electronic subscription (providing full online access) to a range of Brepols journals in our field.

All graduate students who wish to have their papers considered must submit a polished draft one month before the conference. Please send drafts electronically to: Helen Barr.
