Maryland AIR Awards
Best Paper Award
To promote Maryland research, a Best Paper Award is bestowed annually to the MdAIR member(s) for the best presentation at the MdAIR Fall Conference. The Awards Committee determines the most deserving recipient. The award provides the recipient the opportunity to present the paper again at the next AIR Forum with the recognition as MdAIR's Best Paper.
MdAIR will reimburse the cost of registration to the AIR Forum to defray expenses to attend the AIR Forum.
In addition, AIR is currently providing additional travel funds for the MdAIR Award recipient through an AIR Affiliated Organization (AO) Forum Travel Grant. The recipient may be eligible for reimbursed travel expenses up to the cost of the AIR registration (matching fund of the MdAIR momentary award). See https://www.airweb.org/AboutUs/AffiliatedOrganizations/Pages/AIR-AO-Travel-Grant.aspx.
