Best Refereed Paper Award

The WACE Best Refereed Paper Award was created to recognize an outstanding CWIE researcher. The Award becomes a part of WACE’s commitment to CWIE research in concert with the WACE International Research Group and the WACE International Research Symposia. The Award is presented to the researcher whose work provides evidence of the power of CWIE on an academic discipline, industry or students. The Award was first given at the 1st International Research Symposium at University West June 2014.
