CUG 2009 Proceedings

Final Program and Proceedings-online

Congratulations to the CUG 2009 Best Paper Winner!

The selection of the Best Paper Award at CUG 2009 proved to be very difficult as all papers submitted were of excellent quality and content. As of the time of the deadline, there were 46 papers to review and consider for the Award. The papers were reviewed by 6 judges over the course of 5 days. The selection process reduced the papers down to three finalists and the eventual selection of one of these as the winner. It is with great pleasure that I announce the Best Paper Award Winner and Finalists.
