Arnold Huddart Medal

If you wish to be considered for this prize session please mark the abstract form accordingly.

The Arnold Huddart Medal was established in 1990 for the encouragement of original and promising research papers at the Annual Scientific Conference. The adjudication panel consists of one member from each of the Society's five main membership categories and is chaired by the Vice President of the Society.

Papers are judged on content, presentation and handling of the discussion following presentation of the paper. The paper should be of general interest and understandable to all disciplines of the Society.

The prize is normally awarded to a presenter under the age of 40 years, at the time of presentation. The rules have been amended in recent times and priority is now given to sole authors over multi-authored papers. The decision of the adjudication panel is final
