regional, or state planning.
Undergraduate, graduate, and joint faculty/student papers are eligible. For
joint faculty/student papers, the student must be the first author and
designated presenter of the paper. Only papers accepted for presentation at
the ACSP Conference will be eligible for the award.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the conference
will submit their final papers by June 30, 2006. Papers are not to exceed
20 pages and will be reviewed during the summer of 2006 with notification
about the winner of the award in September 2006. One $500 prize will be
presented at the ACSP 2006 conference. The winner will agree to first
publication rights by IBHS in its quarterly publication Disaster Safety Review.
