IEEE CASE Best Conference Paper Award
About the Award
Description: The award is given annually to the author(s) of a paper presented at the IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) that contributed to the notable advancement in automation research: abstractions, algorithms, theory, methodologies, and models that improve efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability of machines and systems operating in structured environments over extended periods, or that improve the explicit structuring of environments where machines and systems operate.
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: Funded by IEEE CASE conference.
Eligibility: There are no restrictions as to organization, nationality, race, creed, sex, or age, except for the acceptance of a paper and its presentation at IEEE CASE. 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.
Basis for Judging: The award is given annually to the author(s) of a paper presented in IEEE CASE that contributed to the notable advancement in automation research: abstractions, algorithms, theory, methodologies, and models that improve efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability of machines and systems operating in structured environments over extended periods, or that improve the explicit structuring of environments where machines and systems operate. Finalists are selected from all the accepted papers by the Conference Awards Committee and are notified prior to the conference. The finalists will present their works in the conference plenary best paper award session that is attended by the selection committee. The committee listens to the presentations, the questions from the audience and the authors’ answers. The committee also invites comments after each presentation and considers them in the evaluation. The selection committee then decides upon the winner.
Presentation: The award will be presented during the conference. No award will be given if no qualified candidate is identified.
