Eligible authors are invited to nominate papers submitted for presentation at the 16th REAAA Conference in Manila, Philippines, in March 2021 for the prestigious Katahira Conference Awards. Winners will be awarded a cash prize and a certificate which will be presented during the Conference.
The Katahira Awards were established in 1991 in memory of the late Dr Nobutaka Katahira, who was the Association’s President for the 5th Council term from 1983 to 1986.
The main objective of the Awards is to encourage keen participation among young engineers in the promotion and advancement of science and technology in road development and road-related engineering.
The Awards entry rules are as follows:
1. The author must be under 40 years of age on 31st December 2020 (the closing date for submission). If there is more than one author, only the first or second-named author must be under 40 years of age.
2. The author must be either an Ordinary/Associate member of REAAA or an employee of an Institutional member of REAAA at the time of the submission of the paper.
3. Where there is more than one author, one member of REAAA as co-author is sufficient for the paper to be eligible for the award. It is not essential for that author to be under 40 years of age. However, either the first or second author must be under 40 years of age as stated above.
4. Papers must not have been published elsewhere in the same form.
