Komor Award


Brief Summary

The Andrzej Komor New Investigator Award is presented at each symposium to recognize the best paper by a new investigator. The award typically consists of a $500 prize and a certificate. The competition is judged by an ad hoc committee of the Technical Group on Computer Simulation at the symposium. To give as much exposure as possible, the award is announced in the larger ISB Congress, at either the General Assembly or the Banquet. To be eligible for the award, the new investigator must be either a student or not have a PhD prior to January 1st in the year that the symposium is held, must be the paper's first author, and must present the paper.
