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.
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 the Council a statement describing the contribution of other authors to the research.
- A judging panel will be appointed by the Council to assess 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.
How to apply
Student members are automatically entered in the A. G. Lyne Award unless they notify the Society that they do not wish to be considered for the award. This can be done when submitting a conference abstract.
