Best Paper Awards

APIAR recognises outstanding contributions to research. There are four Best Papers awards for four streams. Best Papers are judged both on the merits of the written document and on the quality of their presentation at the conference. The awards serve to acknowledge the authors who receive them as leading researchers in Business, Education, ICT and Social Sciences. The awards also provide an incentive to authors to produce high-quality papers and present them in a lucid and compelling manner.

APIAR Best Paper Award recipients are selected through a two-prong process. The first step is a review of the full-length papers accepted for the conference. Review committee members of the conference rank these papers according to quality, relevance and originality, to determine the finalists for each award category. While selection as a finalist for an APIAR Best Paper Award is a notable achievement in itself, winners are then chosen from the finalists, according to the quality of their presentations. Presentation quality is judged according to the audience feedback collected at the conference.

About Adelaide

Adelaide offers all the advantages of a cosmopolitan city without the problems of a very big city. The Mediterranean climate, ease of access, affordable entertainment, high-quality accommodation and excellent shopping, are among the attractions that made conference delegates name Adelaide as "the perfect conference city".

After arriving at the new international airport, delegates can check into their hotel within half an hour, and have the benefit of being situated opposite the world-class convention centre. What is more, the hotel is just a stone’s throw away from our pristine beaches and world-renowned wineries.

Adelaide presents the perfect opportunity for relaxation and enjoyment. Here, you can discover the local gourmet cuisine and famed regional wines as well as enjoying a range of social events and adventure trips. The unique wildlife parks, clean and beautiful beaches, the vibrant cafés, great dining, the riverboats and dolphin cruises all make Adelaide an excellent holiday destination for all ages.

Inner City Dining

City food is concentrated around Gouger Street and Rundle Street. You’ll love the relaxed atmosphere and international menus. In other parts of the city centre, try The Greek on Halifax (street), Goodlife Pizza restaurants on Hutt Street, O’Connell Street and at Glenelg or Cos on Leigh Street.

If you still can’t decide, 5 or 10 minutes in a cab will have you on King William Road at Hyde Park, Unley Road, The Parade at Norwood, Melbourne or O’Connell Streets, both in North Adelaide.

Wherever you go though, there’s a huge choice, with everything from ever popular family owned cafés and restaurants, to well known franchise businesses.

Stay

There are over 4,500 hotel rooms in very close proximity to the Adelaide city centre, while delegates who choose to stay further out (e.g., on the beachfront) can access a range of modern transport options, including trams, buses and taxis.
