IACS 2022 Top Student Paper

IACS will recognize the Top Student Paper submitted to the Summit. For award consideration, you must have an accepted abstract for the 2022 Summit, and a full-length manuscript must be submitted to the review committee by Friday, January 28, 2022 at 11:59pm ET.


Recognition of Top Student Paper will be determined by anonymous peer review of the submission. Papers for consideration must be solely authored by the student(s).


The guidelines to submit your paper for consideration include: 

  • All papers must be authored by student(s) only. A faculty member cannot be listed as an author on a paper that is in consideration for the Top Student Paper award. A paper may have multiple authors, but they must all be students. 

  • Student(s) can be either master's or Ph.D. level.

  • Manuscripts must be full-length, completed manuscripts. MLA, APA, or Chicago Style citation styles are acceptable. There is no required paper length, but it should be a traditional conference manuscript length (approximately 18-30 pages). 

  • All submissions must be prepared for anonymous review (i.e., all identifying information from the author(s) must be removed). A non-anonymous submission will be automatically disqualified from consideration.

  • Submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Friday January 28, 2022.  

  • Please submit submissions prepared for anonymous review to Travis Bell at

  • If you have questions, please direct them to Travis Bell at
