Step 1, your abstract will be reviewed by panel members of the ICAS track that pertains to the subject covered by the abstract. This review determines applicability and potential for a paper to compete for the McCarthy Award.
Step 2, each uploaded paper that supports the selected abstract from Step 1 for competition, will be reviewed by the Student Paper Review and Selection Sub-Committee. The paper must conform to the following qualifying criteria.
Thank you for submitting your paper(s). The Student Paper Review and Selection Sub-Committee looks forward to reviewing your submittals.
Please direct any questions to the ICAS Secretariat.
Student Paper Review and Selection Committee Chair
As Background - The ICAS McCarthy Award is established for students working in scientific research in aeronautics. It is offered by Mrs. Camille McCarthy, the widow of Professor John McCarthy Jr. Professor McCarthy served for several years as a member of the Program Committee of ICAS, and, in his professional life, he keenly promoted younger scientists, technologists and engineers. The award (or awards), consisting of a certificate and a stipend will be given to the author (or authors, should there be more than one who satisfies the qualifying criteria) of the paper that demonstrates a quality of content and presentation judged to be the best or second best of the student papers presented at the Congress. At past Congresses, the presenter(s) received an honorarium in the range of €1,000 for the winner and €500 for second place. Should it prove difficult at the Congress to make a choice between papers of similar merit, the award or awards may, at the discretion of the judges, be divided equally between recipients.
