Society for Laboratory Automation & Screening Innovation Award
SLAS Innovation Award Mission Statement
The SLAS Innovation Award is a $10,000 cash prize recognizing the work behind that one unique and special podium presentation at the SLAS Annual Conference that proves to be exceedingly innovative and contributes to the exploration of technologies in the laboratory, exceeds a benchmark or milestone in screening or the lead discovery process, or demonstrates an advanced and integrated use of mature technologies.
What are we looking for?
SLAS is searching for podium presentations from academia, government and industry broadly consisting of innovative advances such as:
• a fundamental study to develop new technology for the laboratory,
• a new application of technology to laboratory automation or screening, or
• a use of technology to solve a unique problem.
The award consists of a $10,000 check presentation to the winning presenting author (see rules and regulations: monetary disbursement). Subject to SLAS requirements and the approval of the SLAS Awards and Grants Advisory Committee, the winning presenting author also (1) becomes a member of the judging panel for the next year, and (2) is invited to participate on the Annual Conference Program Committee for the following year's SLAS Conference. Additionally, the winner is granted a complementary one-year membership to SLAS. The award winning work will be featured in an issue of JALA and/or JBS following the conference. From this point forward, the presenting author may also be referred to as the "candidate."
The Panel of Judges
The panel of judges is comprised of individuals approved by the SLAS Awards and Grants Advisory Committee and represents the various technologies and applications within the SLAS Conference curriculum.
The SLAS President only votes to break any ties when all scoring is final. Judges may not have or have had any formal association with the candidates - either direct or indirect. Judges must recuse themselves from evaluating any candidate wherein there exists a relationship such as family, business, financial or other, e.g. academic, student/professional association. Judges must sign a non-conflict of interest certification form ensuring no improper purposes. It is expected that any issues are declared by the judges. The Chair makes the final decision on any questionable issues.
Selecting the winner of the SLAS Innovation Award is based on a three-tiered evaluation system:
1. Selection of the SLAS Podium Presentations
In assembling the program, the Annual Conference Program Committee selects qualifying podium presentations from the abstracts received in response to the Call for Abstracts. To qualify for entry into the SLAS Innovation Award contest, an abstract must be received prior to the Call for Abstracts deadline of Monday, July 28, 2014 and the author must opt-in for consideration using the appropriate check box.
2. Preliminary Screening
Working from the conference's selected abstracts, the panel of judges scores all the abstracts thereby identifying the SLAS Innovation Award Finalists for evaluation at the SLAS Annual Conference. The panel of judges reviews only those podium presentations selected and slotted for the conference by the Annual Conference Program Committee. Short course instructors, poster presenters, and plenary speakers* are not eligible unless they have also been accepted into the SLAS2015 Scientific Program. All candidates must adhere to the SLAS Abstract Submission policies, timelines, rules and regulations1.
Here's how the preliminary screening works:
The Annual Conference Program Committee selects podium presentations for the SLAS Annual Conference. The judges (not including the SLAS President) are assigned to review and score the abstracts. (See "Scoring" below). The Chair assigns all abstracts for evaluation to the panel of judges. Each of the podium presentations will be scored by a minimum of two judges. Upon completion of the first scoring phase, the Judging Panel will convene by teleconference to select the Top 20 to 25 Candidate presentations. These Top Candidates will be offered the opportunity to submit an extended abstract for review by the panel. An extended abstract is strongly encouraged by the Judging Panel to allow better differentiation of the leading candidates. Failure to submit information in time for the next selection phase will jeopardize the author's chances for inclusion in the finalists.
Upon completion of this second phase the SLAS Innovation Award Panel of Judges will announce the Innovation Award Finalists to compete for the award at the SLAS Annual Conference.
Request for Additional Information:
As part of the preliminary screening process, and in coordination with Chair and panel, a candidate author may be contacted to answer further questions.
3. Judging of Presentations at the SLAS Annual Conference
The judging panel will attend and evaluate each of the candidate's presentations and will collectively select the winner of the SLAS Innovation Award. In scoring the presentations the judges will consider the following:
1. Impact on Laboratory Automation and Screening
Will this work make a noticeable contribution to the field of Laboratory Automation and Screening? Will it substantially reduce the cost, change the workflow, or improve the quality of laboratory processes? Is the method robust enough to allow routine implementation? Will it have widespread adoption over the next 10 years? Did the presenter explain why he/she was doing the research and who will benefit from this research/technology? Would this advancement only benefit a small group of people, or could it have far reaching/global impact and change laboratory automation as we know it?
How novel is the approach or solution? Is this work a creative solution to a new problem or a new twist on an old theme? Can this approach be applied to a range of problems or is it limited to one particular case? Is this "me too" science applied to a slightly different problem?
3. Quality of the Science
Was the experiment performed properly? Can improvements be made either with the science or the technology? Do the data reflect reaching a fundamental limit? What is the confidence that the result is correct? Are the results repeatable and were the results repeated? Are there better methods to solve the same problem? Did the presenter appropriately report any limitations of the methods? If this work is early in development, are there any major hurdles to overcome prior to widespread success? Does the presenter understand the uncertainty of the measurements/methods?
4. Oral Presentation
Was the oral presentation in alignment with the written abstract? Did the presenter explain the key concept(s) well enough so that a well-educated listener could follow his/her main train of thought? Was the presenter able to keep the audience's attention throughout the presentation? Was the presentation well organized with respect to its look-and-feel (e.g., large enough fonts, suitable colors, readable graphics, etc.)? Was the presentation's content organized in a logical manner? Did the presenter answer questions from the audience in a satisfactory manner? Did the presenter provide the correct amount of background material so that the general SLAS audience can understand the subject? Did the audience seem excited by the presentation?
Each candidate presentation will be judged on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 5 being the best possible score; integers only). There is a maximum of 20 points possible. The scores of all judges will be consolidated for the final decision.

Call for Nominations: Society for Personality and Social Psychology Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize
Deadline: June 1, 2014
The Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize recognizes an article or book chapter judged to provide the most innovative theoretical contribution to social/personality psychology within a given year. In October 2013, the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology were pleased to announce that henceforth the Society's annual Theoretical Innovation Prize will be known as the Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize. Dan Wegner, who passed away in 2013, was recognized with the field's most prestigious awards for his highly original scholarship and novel theoretical perspective. The dedication of this award to the memory of Dan Wegner is made possible by a generous donation from Worth Publishers.
Any kind of innovative theoretical contribution can be considered for the prize, including presentations of new theories, new theory-based integrations of disparate areas of inquiry, and significant extensions of existing theories to new areas of inquiry. Theoretical contributions are eligible for the prize regardless of the format of their presentation, whether in stand-along theoretical papers, within conceptually based literature reviews, or in some other written format that highlights conceptual innovation.
The prize recognizes theoretical articles that are especially likely to generate the discovery of new hypotheses, new phenomena, or new ways of thinking about the discipline of social/personality psychology. Theoretical contributions may be judged innovative and generative even before they have accumulated substantial empirical support. Therefore, an article may be judged worthy for the prize even if it runs the risk of empirical invalidation in the future. The emphasis of the prize is on a contribution's conceptual innovation and potential to motivate new research and further conceptual investigation, rather than on its current level of empirical support.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during the previous calendar year. Books and unpublished manuscripts are not eligible.
Eligible articles may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Nomination Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
The Award Nomination Panel has the option of not awarding a prize annually.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during calendar year 2013.
Books, unpublished and ‘in press’ manuscripts are not eligible. ‘Published in 2013’ means, as rightly interpreted, that it appears in print in 2013.
Eligible articles or chapters may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
To nominate an article or chapter for consideration, individuals should send the following to TheoreticalPrize@gmail.com
An E-file in PDF or Microsoft Word format of the nominated piece
An E-file of a brief (e.g., one paragraph) nominating letter describing how the nominated article excels on the prize criteria
