Observations and Recommendations
• Subcommittee organization is very helpful
– Look at # of volunteers it took to make student paper judging successful
• For ASC –Composite paper, need more direction to choose top
Composite paper
– Of the top 6 finalist papers, they were ‘word searched’ for the word
“composite” and 2 were found, so no other composite paper was added for
• One of the 2 papers only stated “Composites would be looked at in future work”. So,
ASC award was given to the other paper … may not have been a strong presentation.
– Suggest ASC select 2 papers to be have presentation judged
• Will provide next year deadlines for papers when available
• Would encourage all professors to encourage students to participate
• Understand that separate judging of presentations may need to happen
when award needs to be defined by COB Monday of conference.
– Have seen difference in presentations, but that’s the only way at this time.
