distinguished research contribution in image and vision computing.
Image and Vision Computing journal, published by Elsevier, sponsors
this award, which honors a young researcher within seven years of
We will announce the award winner at the annual IEEE TC PAMI meeting
at the IEEE Int’l Conf. Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2012
The winner of the award will also be asked to contribute an article

ABOUT THE AWARD
This award is made annually for a distinguished research contribution
in image and vision computing by a young researcher within seven years
of their PhD.
The award includes 1,000 USD cash prize and the reimbursement of
travel costs to CVPR’12.
“A distinguished research contribution in image and vision computing”
is any high-quality original research that has direct implications and
contributions to image interpretation and computer vision. All areas
of computer vision will be considered including image interpretation,
scene modeling, object recognition and tracking, shape analysis,
monitoring and surveillance, active vision and robotic systems, SLAM,
biologically-inspired computer vision, motion analysis, stereo vision,
document image understanding, character and handwritten text
recognition, face and gesture recognition, biometrics, vision-based
human-computer interaction, human activity and behavior understanding,
data fusion from multiple sensor inputs, and image databases."
‘A young researcher within seven years of their PhD’ means that if
nominated in year ‘n’ they should normally have received their PhD
after 1 January in year ‘n-7’.
