Given the 20th anniversary of the IAHR Hydraulic Structures Technical Committee in 2018, the Leadership Team decided to create the Philip H. Burgi Best Paper Award, named after the first chair of the Technical Committee. This award aims at rewarding the best technical paper presented during the International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures.

Authors aiming at applying to Philip H. Burgi Best Paper Award–ISHS 2022 should mention it when submitting their abstract. Nominated papers will be selected prior to the symposium regarding their scientific content, innovation and impact as well as link with hydraulic structures. Award winner will be selected among selected papers after oral presentations and will be announced during the ISHS banquet.
