The NAMRI/SME Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year to recognize both the engineering value and industrial relevance of a publication at the annual North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC).
Awards will be based on:
- Originality or novelty of an idea.
- Method or approach.
- Significance to manufacturing.
- Technical soundness.
- Acknowledgment of the work of others.
- Organization of the manuscript.
- Clarity in writing.
- Figures and style.
The selection process is the responsibility of the NAMRI/SME Honors Committee. The NAMRI/SME Scientific Committee Chair will identify three to five papers submitted for publication at each year's NAMRC that received strong reviews by the Scientific Committee. Copies of these papers will be distributed to the NAMRI/SME Honors Committee by March 1. The committee votes using established criteria and the winners are identified based on these criteria.
