CPES attracts some of the best students in the world. And when those students challenge each other to give the top presentation at the Technical Sessions and to be the most engaging during the Lab Dialogue Sessions, everyone who participated in the 2022 CPES Annual Conference benefits.

The following students were selected by conference participants as the best in their respective categories. The links go to the recording of their presentation or highlight video on the conference website.

The winners receive a plaque and small cash prizeand of course good-natured bragging rights among their colleagues.
