CUG 2010 Best Paper

The process of selecting the Best Paper for the conference is difficult and challenging. The selection committee spent many hours reading and analyzing each paper. Though the process is time consuming and challenging, the end result is truly rewarding.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the CUG 2010 Best Paper Award Winner and Finalists.
