Awards

Each year, ASIS&T SIG SI gives out two research paper awards. Nominations for both awards are accepted during July of each year, with awardees notified in time for early registration for the ASIS&T conference (usually in September). Awards are then formally given during the SIG SI symposium at that year’s ASIS&T conference.

Social Informatics Best Paper Award

The Social Informatics Best Paper Award is given to the best paper published in a peer reviewed journal on a topic informed by social informatics during the previous calendar year (e.g. during 2015 for the 2016 award). The author or authors present their paper and receive a cash award (currently set at $1,000) at that year’s ASIS&T Annual Meeting. At least one author must be present at the SIG SI symposium to receive the award. Nomination letters, once nominations are opened each year, should be sent to the co-chairs of the SIG and must include a full citation, a brief explanation for the nomination, and a copy of the article; self-nominations are acceptable.
