A.G. Lyne Award
The A.G. Lyne Award celebrates the life of Gordon Lyne (1919–1986), a long-standing member of the Society and past president. The award is given to the best poster presentation by a student member at an Annual Scientific Meeting. In 2021, due to the need to have a virtual conference, the A. G. Lyne Award will be awarded to the best student speed talk.
The award consists of a certificate and a monetary prize of $300. The mode of payment will be determined by the Council and payment arranged with the student after the conference.
- Only student members of the Society are eligible for the award.
- The applicant must be the sole or senior author of the paper for which the award is made.
- In the case of multiple authors, students must provide to Council a statement describing the contribution of other authors to the research.
- Submitted applications will be short-listed by the Council for consideration for the award prior to the Annual Meeting.
- A judging panel will be appointed by the Council to assess short-listed applicants for the award at the Annual Scientific Meeting.
- A. G. Lyne Award recipients are eligible for a Student Travel Award but not the John Seebeck Award.
