Selection Criteria

The selection jury will be constituted of EMTP® developers.

Papers will be reviewed for overall quality and potential significance to the discipline and advancement of EMT simulations and modeling. The paper or model should include the area of technical and scientific research, the problems it addresses, and environments in which the contributions aim to validate or advance. The submission should include results of the research findings and models.

The submissions will be reviewed on originality, depth and completeness of content, results and comparative information, significance to industry, quality of writing, relevance to the impact of problems in field through simulation and models. The rating each submission of paper or model received involves the quality of introduction, simulation results, comparative information, critical analysis, and conclusion results.

Winner Announcement

The winners will be informed by November 1st, 2022 at the latest and they will be awarded the EMTP® Research Contribution Prize in the amount of $1,000 USD along with a certificate of award.

Biography of student will be published to the emtp.com site which will be due by December 1st.
