Hunt-Kelly Outstanding Paper Award (AIME)
History and Purpose
The AIST Hunt’ Kelly Outstanding Paper Award was established in 2004 by combining the AIME - ISS Robert W. Hunt Award (1920) and the AIST John F. Kelly Award (1943). A technical paper of the year will be selected each year from the author or authors, not necessarily members of the association, of the best published paper of the previous year that receives a nomination.
Nominations for papers from Iron & Steel Technology shall be made by completing Sections 1, 2, 3 and 6 of the AIST Award Nomination Form. The Technology Division “best papers” chosen from conference proceedings will be automatically included as candidates for this award.
The paper will be selected for excellence, originality, relevance to the technology (applied or fundamental) of the iron and steel industry, and for the advancement of engineering and operating practice in the steel industry. The papers to be considered for nomination are those published by the association in Iron & Steel Technology within the period starting with the July issue of one year and running through the June issue of the following year.
A cash award will be presented to the first, second and third place recipients in the amount of US$5,000, US$2,500 and US$1,000 respectively. Award total is distributed evenly to all authors identified on a multi-authored paper.
This award recipient will be selected by a sub-committee of six members who are AIST Past Presidents.
