Following the ongoing success of the EPMA Keynote Paper Award, sponsored by the journal Powder Metallurgy, KNP Awards will continue for World PM2022 Congress & Exhibition.

When the Technical Programme Committee meet in February, they will carefully shortlist a pre-selection of submitted abstracts, then in May the KNP Awards Committee will meet and choose the KNP winners based on the manuscript.

For a paper to be considered for Keynote status it should report original research or review a topic of interest to the PM community. It must not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

The Keynote papers will receive an extended 30-minute slot for their presentation at the beginning of the relevant session and will go on to be published in the industry journal Powder Metallurgy, who are also sponsoring €250 for each of the successful Keynotes papers published in the industry journal Powder Metallurgy.
