(Click here for printer friendly version, Adobe PDF >>)


The North American Mixing Forum is pleased to invite students working in the field of mixing to take part in the Student Award competition for 2010.  The finalists will be invited to present their work at MIXING XXII which will be held in Victoria on Vancouver Island, Canada from 20 - 25 June 2010. 


The NAMF Student Award was established to encourage, recognize and reward students for quality research in the field of mixing. Any graduate or undergraduate student doing research in the field of fluid mixing at an accredited university in North America is eligible.


All eligible applicants must submit a paper describing their work in mixing to the NAMF Student Awards Committee Chair. The paper must follow the following format closely:


Cover letter: Title of Work, Name(s) and Address(es) of Author(s)


Introduction (Orient the reviewer to the problem of study)

Theory or Model Development (Theoretical basis of work)

Experimental Set-up/Procedures

Results and Discussion




The paper should follow the format of a submission to the Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering >>

The paper(s) must be submitted as a PDF file to:  richard.k.grenville@usa.dupont.com


Closing date for submissions: 19th March 2010.


NAMF will cover both the travel expenses and the registration fees (at the student rate, which requires sharing a room) for the finalist(s).


Members of the NAMF Student Award Committee as well as a pre-selected group of NAMF members attending the conference select the winner at the conference. Final selection is based on the submitted paper and the presentation at the NAMF Conference. The Award Committee’s decision is final and NOT subject to review.


The winner is notified during the conference and is presented with a plaque and an award of $500 at the NAMF Award Banquet.


A previous winner of this award may compete again, but is not eligible for the travel expenses or the conference registration fees, even if selected as a finalist.  


Those applicants who wish to present at the NAMF conference, even if not selected as a Student Award finalist, should also follow the instructions given in the general conference Call for Papers and submit a separate abstract to the Conference Chair.

For a submission made to the Student Competition only the finalists will be invited to present their work at the conference.

If you would like the paper to be considered for an oral or poster presentation (regardless of how it ranks in the Student Competition) an abstract should be submitted to the general Call for Papers as well as the Student Competition. In addition to the information required in the abstract submission form, a comment to the effect that the paper has been submitted to the Student Competition should also be made.
