Best student paper awards sponsored by the Optical Society of America (OSA) and the ICONO/LAT 2013.
Four awards by 500USD in cash each were awarded at the conference for both best oral and poster presentations delivered by students. The decision was made by a special jury chaired by Prof. Philip Russell, Vice-President of the OSA.
