IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters Best Paper Award
About the Award
Description: To recognize the best paper of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) published in the previous calendar year.
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 the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
Eligibility: Authorship or co-authorship of all papers published in the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters in the previous calendar year. 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. Recipient(s) need not be members of the IEEE or RAS.
Basis for Judging: The RA-L Senior Editorial Board selects the final candidate papers, and the EiC makes the final selection of the winning paper. Scientific and technological excellence will be the unique criterion for judging the papers.
