The Best Paper Committee is composed of representatives from government, industry and academia. Each subcommittee will nominate a paper as a candidate for the Best Paper Award for the I/ITSEC Conference. The Best Paper committee selects the winner from the best paper nominations submitted by the Education, Emerging Concepts and Innovation Technologies, Human Performance Analysis and Engineering, Policy Standards Management and Acquisition, Simulation, and Training Subcommittees. The committee uses defined criteria in the evaluation of the nominated papers and presentations for the selection of the best paper winner for I/ITSEC. The selection of the best paper represents the culmination of the I/ITSEC Conference, and to be nominated is considered an honor in the industry. The winner of the Best Paper Award and five finalists will be announced at the I/ITSEC closing ceremony.
