The paper entries were reviewed in a double-blinded process by AEDE faculty and post-doc researchers. Two winners were selected for the best paper prize as the chosen submissions were ranked so closely by all reviewers that a decision was made to offer two best paper awards rather than one best paper and one honorable mention award.

Please note: The winning authors may have more up-to-date versions of the papers, interested parties should write to the authors at the email addresses noted above regarding obtaining an updated version or for other inquiries.
