Student Paper Competitions
Submission Deadline: 5 March 2021
Submissions are open for the Annual Joseph A. Hartman Student Paper Competition and the new Jody Endres Student Paper Competition.
These competitions seek to capture the very best ideas concerning the reduction of aviation noise and emission, alternative jet fuel production and use, aviation operations, and more.
These competitions are open to undergraduate and graduate students. A committee of ASCENT professionals selected the winners for each competition. Authors of the winning papers received a $1,000 cash prize.
Joseph A. Hartman Competition
Previously funded by the Partnership for Air Transportation Noise and Emissions Reduction, the Joseph A. Hartman competition seeks submissions of papers describing research in:
- Aircraft Noise and Impacts
- Aviation Emissions and Impacts
- Aircraft Technology Assessment
- Environmentally and Energy Efficient Gate-to-Gate Aircraft Operations
- Aviation Modeling and Analysis
The Joseph A. Hartman Student Paper Competition is named in memory of Professor Joseph A. Hartman of Boise State University, a founding PARTNER member and lead investigator, who passed away in 2004.
