CAUTHE 2019 Conference Awards

Each year the CAUTHE conference offers a number of awards and bursary opportunities for delegates.

The CAUTHE award for Best Full Paper

The Best Full Paper Award is open to all full research papers submitted and accepted for the CAUTHE conference. This award is for refereed papers submitted to the conference committee in full, by a date specified by that committee.

The Bill Faulkner Memorial Award for Best PhD Paper

The Best PhD Scholar’s Paper is presented in memory of Bill Faulkner (1945-2002), Professor of Tourism at Griffith University and Deputy CEO of Australian’s Centre of Co-operative Research in Sustainable Tourism. Professor Faulkner was widely known internationally for his publications in many research journals and many contributions at conferences. In Australia, he was generally and deservedly regarded as the country’s most prominent leader of research on tourism. Professor Faulkner was instrumental in the formation of CAUTHE and the development of its annual conference into one of the foremost international tourism and hospitality research conferences.

The PhD Best paper has to be a full refereed paper with the student as the primary author and the only acceptable co-authors being the author’s registered supervisors. The winning scholar is presented a certificate at the Annual Conference Dinner.

CAUTHE award for Best Poster

The award is open to papers which are presented as visual presentations or posters at the annual conference. The posters are judged by a sub-committee of the Conference Committee during the visual presentation session.

Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Management (JHTM) Awards

The Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management (JHTM) makes awards each year to the authors of a best paper and two highly commended papers, and the best reviewers of the year. The awards will increase the profile and position of the journal while rewarding the authors and reviewers who have helped make it an outstanding title. The awards are presented during the gala of the annual CAUTHE conference.

The scientific committee will identify relevant full hospitality papers for the Hospitality and Society Award in liaison with the CAUTHE secretariat.
