IEEE ICRA Best Paper Award in Automation

About the Award

Description: This award recognizes the best paper in Automation presented at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
Established: 1997
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 funded by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
Eligibility: All papers presented at the annual ICRA conference are eligible. There are no restrictions as to organization, nationality, race, creed, sex, or age. There is no requirement for IEEE membership. 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 automation papers are encouraged to include keywords related to automation 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 automation. Papers are judged based on technical merit, originality, relevance and potential impact on the automation field (in terms of efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability), 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.
