Best paper award at ICA methodology pre-conference


I presented my paper on geographical classification, in the methodology pre-conference at ICA in Fukuoka, Japan. The pre-conference has historical significance as the first methodology group at a major international conference of media and communication studies. There were a lot of interesting presentations, but, to my big surprise, I won a Best Paper Award from the organizer. According to the judges, I revived the award because I had done the most rigorous validation of a new methodology.
