Best ATMAE Conference Proceedings Paper

The Board established the Best Conference Paper award in 2006 to honor the authors of the Best Conference Proceedings Paper of the Annual ATMAE Conference. Over 250 presentation proposals are submitted each year, and between 63% and 75% are accepted. From those presentation proposals that are accepted, about 1/3 are submitted as full papers each year. A maximum of 50% of paper submissions may be accepted. From the accepted papers, the peer-review team of Board members selects one paper and its authors for recognition through this highly competitive award.

Past "Best Paper" Awardees


Charles W. Keith Award

The Charles W. Keith Award is a special award named in honor of the man whose vision and action resulted in the foundation of the National Association of Industrial Technology, ATMAE's predecessor association. The award was established in 1986 by the President and Board of Trustees of NAIT to honor individuals who have significantly contributed their efforts over a period of time towards the development of the Association. The nominee must be one whose contributions to the organization have been consistently outstanding.

The award is administered by the Chair of the Board. It should be noted that this award is not a yearly award, but will be given only when an individual is judged by the current Chair of the Board and two past chairs to have displayed exemplary accomplishments toward the significant development of ATMAE over an appreciable period of time.
