Travel and lodging assistance will be awarded to student and new Ph.D. authors judged to have submitted the best research papers. Any student (or new Ph.D. whose degree awarded after January 1, 2002) is elligible to submit a paper. Papers containing original research due mainly to the student must be received before January 13, 2003. The student or new Ph.D. must be the primary author and the paper may be no more than 10 pages in length.

Sending only an abstract is unacceptable.

A panel of judges will determine the best papers. Authors of the best papers will be given a travel stipend, free lodging and registration, and will be expected to present their paper in one of the regular conference sessions. We will also provide some support for up to five more students who submit acceptable papers.

Student papers should be submitted as ps files by e-mail. If this is not possible, a hard copy of the paper may be submitted by regular post to:

Front Range Scientific Computations, Inc.
1390 Claremont Drive

Postdocs are not considered "students" for this competition (but may be considered "new Ph.Ds" if the degreee was awarded after January 1, 2002). Postdocs are not eligible for student registration fees.
