Best Awards


PLEASE NOTE: 

As of March 2018, NEAIR is currently reevaluating the processes associated with the Best Paper, Best First Paper, and Best IR/Practitioner Report Awards. We expect to introduce a series of changes that will better support the scholarly work of NEAIR members and encourage members to submit their writing and reports for consideration for NEAIR awards. 

This decision will not affect the Best Poster Award for 2018.
