Best Paper Award

The TRAC 2015 Committee will acknowledge the scientific quality of the best contribution to the workshop by offering a Best Paper Award (BPA). The BPA will be offered based on both the scientific quality of the paper and the oral presentation at the workshop. This award is granted to the best contribution being presented during TRAC 2015.

From the accepted papers, a list of candidate papers will be pre-selected by the TPC and announced at the TRAC 2015 website, together with the technical program. A jury will then designate the recipient of the BPA after all presentations have been made, at the closing session of the workshop.
