1 SDM 2012 Student Paper Awards
Rob Taylor Structures TC Meeting 4/24/2012

2 Student Awards Process for SDM (Long Range Planning Requirements)
Student papers can be scheduled throughout the entire week of the conference (M - Th). First round of the contest will be based on the manuscripts. All the student paper manuscripts will be evaluated using predetermined criteria to be provided by Student Paper Chair to a panel of judges representing all the TCs and co-located conferences. This review of the manuscripts will be the responsibility of the panel of judges and will be coordinated by Student Paper Chair. Based on the manuscript ratings for all the student manuscripts, the Student Paper Chair will down select the Top 6 manuscripts for the second round of the contest. The second round of the contest will consist of judging the actual presentations of the students. The Student Paper Chair will provide the judging criteria. The Student Paper Chair will assemble a panel of judges for the Top 6 paper presentations. Top 6 student papers will be judged in a special evening (recommended Tuesday, but could be Sunday or Monday, to the discretion of the SDM Organizing Committee) judging session. This session is expected to run for 3.5 – 4 hours.

3 Student Awards Process for SDM (Long Range Planning Requirements)
The SDM Student Paper Chair is only responsible for selecting the Jefferson Goblet and the American Society for Composite (ASC) student paper award winners. The 6 finalists based on manuscripts will include at least 2 composite material or composite structures related papers. The highest ranked paper based on manuscript and presentation will receive the Jefferson Goblet Award. The highest ranked composite related paper will receive the ASC student paper award. If the Jefferson Goblet award is given to a composite related paper, the second ranked composite related paper will receive the ASC award. The names of the Jefferson Goblet and ASC awardees will be shared with the Structures TC. The Structures TC will be responsible for selecting the Lockheed Martin and Hilton award winners. The winners of the Jefferson Goblet and ASC awards will be excluded from receiving the Structures TC sponsored student paper awards.

7 Manuscript Reviews 127 student abstracts
99 student manuscripts uploaded Very tight schedule—Submission deadline April 2 to review deadline April 9 (missed) Structural Dynamics had heavy review burden—difficulty completing Structures TC reviewers—very prompt (Thank you!!!) Most 3 reviews, some 2 Subcommittee organization very helpful in completing process Structural Dynamics 31 MDO 17 Structures 14 Materials 12 ASC 7 NDA Wind Energy Technology 5 GSF 3 Design Engineering Total 99 Mike Hyer Moshe Domb Lisa Hardaway Mary Mahler Mike Ross Jeanette Domber Michael Enright Eric Lundgren Joe Hackel Marc Schultz Michael Wolff John Wang Maenghyo Cho Johanne Heald Mark Sensmeier Stan Smeltzer Anthony Palazotto Harry Hilton—willing but recused

8 Finalists 8 students invited to present at Tuesday evening judging session 6 Finalists Eligible for Jefferson Goblet—good diversity: 1 each from Structures (composites) Wind Energy Technology ASC (Adaptive Structures Conf.) (composites) Structural Dynamics MDO GSF 2 composites papers in 6 finalists eligible for ASC (Amer. Soc. Comp.) award Next 2 Structures manuscripts eligible for Structures TC awards but not Jefferson Goblet or ASC award

9 Observations At Fall planning meeting each TC/conference decided to review its own manuscripts to ensure technical expertise of reviewers—accepting inevitable variation and potential conflict of interest In the end some TC’s felt each TC should have a finalist—need more than 6 Structural Dynamics had heavy review burden Personal Opinion: Tuesday evening judging session is very difficult to manage, conflicts with all TC meetings, and is unfair to students Intractable if additional awards added I don’t know best solution but LRP really needs to address and revise process ASC and ASC need to get together and resolve their acronym conflict Ball provided excellent support—had to rearrange assignments for some papers initially assigned 3 Ball reviewers
