For the recent joint World Congress of the International Fuzzy Systems Association and an Annual Conference of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society IFSA/NAFIPS'2013 (Edmonton, Canada, June 24-28, 2013), De Gruyter publishers provided four special book prizes for the best student interval papers.
According to the NAFIPS conference award rules, a paper is considered to be a student paper if either its first author or its second author was a student at submission time.
To select the best papers, an awards committee was formed, chaired by Professor R. Baker Kearfott, Editor-in-Chief of Reliable Computing, the main journal on interval computations.
It was not easy for the committee to select the best papers since many good interval student papers were presented at the conference. The following four papers received the awards (student authors are in italics):
