Papers appearing in any conference proceedings or journal are eligible, as long as they have had a significant impact on research areas of interest within the PODC community, and as long as the year of publication is at least ten years prior to the year in which the award is given.
The winning authors will share a cash award of $1,000, and each will be presented with a plaque at PODC. An announcement of each year's prize recipient(s) will be included in the PODC proceedings of that year, describing the paper's lasting contributions.
