By Paulo Coutinho. Macau Daily Times ( )
At ICAS 8 in Macao, we celebrated the fifth edition of the ICAS Book Prize, a lustrum. In the past 10 years the ICAS Book Prize has grown from an experiment with 50 books and 5 dissertations submitted to an established prize with 250 publications of 60 publishers worldwide and 100 dissertations competing.
Therefore we have added a new category this year: The Reading Committee Accolades. This gave the Reading Committees the opportunity to single out more books and dissertations than just the winners because so many excellent publications were submitted.
The Reading Committees for the ICAS Book Prize (IBP) and the Reading Committee for the Best Ph.D have decided on the short lists with 5 books and 3 Ph.Ds in each category.
We are pleased to announce that ICAS 8 will take place in Macao from 24-27 June 2013.
