O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award

The O. Hugo Schuck Award is given to recognize the best two papers presented at the previous ACC. One award is for a paper emphasizing contributions to theory and the other emphasizing significant or innovative applications. The papers must have been presented by one of the coauthors. Criteria for selection include the quality of the written and oral presentation, the technical contribution, timeliness, and practicality.
 
Nominations for these awards must be from someone who certifies that he or she attended the talk. As the award is for presentation as well as the written paper, self-nomination (including by co-authors) is inappropriate. The nomination form is available on the AACC web site. This fact, as well as the requirement that nomination be by someone who attended the talk, is announced at the ACC in general and by the session chairs--who can and should be nominators as appropriate.
