IEEE ICRA Best Paper Award on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sponsored by Cooperative Research Centre for Trusted Autonomous Systems)
About the Award
Description: This award recognizes the best paper on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) presented at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
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 Cooperative Research Centre for Trusted Autonomous Systems for a period of 5 years (2018-2022). 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 organization, nationality, race, creed, sex, or age.
