Best Paper Award
In addition, there were eight high quality interdisciplinary finalist presentations in the framework of ‘Best Paper Award Competition’ to recognize scientific papers of outstanding young scientists on Functional Surfaces and Interfaces from different disciplines.
The winners of the Best Paper Competition was determined by an interdisciplinary evaluation commitee consisting of jury members from different universities/institutions, who are well known and active scientists in the field:
1-Dr. Meltem Sezen, SUNUM
2-Dr. Funda Yağcı Acar, Koç University
3-Dr. Filiz Kuralay, Hacettepe University
4-Dr. Koray Balcıoğlu, TÜBİTAK MAM
The jury members carefully evaluated each article and presentation. Below are the winners of the Best Paper Award:
Winner-Yiğit Akkuş (Atomic Scale Interfacial Transport at an Extended Evaporating Meniscus)
