IEEE ICRA Best Paper Award in Robot Vision (sponsored by Ben Wegbreit)

About the Award

Description: This award recognizes the best paper in Robot Vision presented at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
Established: 2000
Prize: A single award of $1,000 to be shared by all authors and certificates for individual authors. If there are multiple authors of a winning paper, they will share the $1,000 prize equally. In the exceptional case that two papers are deemed worthy, the authors of each paper will share a $500 prize equally.
Funding: The award is sponsored by Ben Wegbreit. If funding becomes unavailable, the award will not be given.
Eligibility: All papers presented at the annual ICRA conference are eligible. There are no restrictions as to IEEE membership, organization, nationality, race, creed, sex, or age. Eligibility and Selection process shall comply with procedures and regulation established in IEEE and Society governing documents, particularly with IEEE Policy 4.4 on Awards Limitations. Authors of robot vision papers are encouraged to include keywords related to robot vision in their keyword list to help the ICRA Awards Committee identify papers to consider for the award.
Basis for Judging: A selection committee will be appointed by the ICRA Awards Committee with members who have appropriate expertise in the field of robot vision. Papers are judged based on technical merit, originality, relevance and potential impact on the robot vision field, clarity of the written paper, and quality of the conference presentation.
Presentation: The award will be announced and presented at the same annual IEEE ICRA conference.
