Best Paper Awards

Best Paper Awards are presented annually at the MedGU meetings. Recipients of awards are selected by a dedicated committee of experienced scientific committee members based on the pre-conference evaluation by technical committee members and session chairs during the conference. Awards recognize outstanding works from each Conference Track from the pool of accepted papers presented by authors in the in-person and online sessions. The award evaluation committee selects the best papers based on a number of criteria, including the importance and novelty of any results obtained, technical excellence, and significance to the research community. Other criteria such as innovation and clarity of presentation are also taken into account.
