All Paper Award recipients are recognized at the Delaware Valley Engineers Week Awards Luncheon, which will be held Friday, February 17, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Philadelphia. All recipients and one guest will receive complimentary tickets; additional tickets can purchased.

There will be a $400 cash award per paper for up to five papers. If there are multiple authors, the check will be made payable to the first author listed on the submission form (the decision on the sharing of the award will be the responsibility of this author). In addition, all paper award recipients will be given an opportunity to share their paper at a poster session as part of the Luncheon.
