Tom Ravenette, 1924-2005

This prize, for best paper presented by a student at the congress, honors the memory of Dr. Tom Ravenette.

Regardless of enrollment status, applicants cannot be academic staff (excepting research assistants). The student must be registered for the entire Congress and present their paper. The student must not already hold any form of doctoral qualification.

Total value of first prize will equal AUS$500.

The fine print: The prize will be awarded by a sub-committee of the Congress Organizing Committee, all decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into. The prize will be judged on submitted abstracts accepted by the Congress Organizing Committee and received by abstract submission deadline, and the student’s presentation. The sub-committee reserves the right to award no prize. The prize will be presented by one or more representatives of the Congress Organizing Committee during the Congress (see the Congress Agenda for date/time) at a formal ceremony that the successful student must attend.

Prize sponsors: Dr. Michael Henman and Wiley-Blackwell.
