11 March - 15 March 2002
QWE2002 involved over 60 Conference Presentations and over 40 full
technical papers included in the Conference CD-ROM. Two very
special QWE2002 Awards went to the winning participant:
The members of the QWE2002 Advisory Board
selected the QWE2002 Best Paper Award, whose author(s)
received a cash prize of $1000.
QWE2002 attendees voted for the QWE2002 Best Presentation
Award, and the presenter was invited to give the same
presentation at QW2002 in San Francisco, CA in September 2002.
Here are the QWE2002 Best
Paper and QWE2002 Best Presentation Results.
This year the Advisory Board's votes resulted in a tie for first place and the Advisory Board recommended
to honor two presentations as the co-Best Papers of QWE2002.
The Co-Best Paper
