The IET's Vision and Imaging Technical Network is giving an award
to the best technology demo in the field of Vision and
Imaging. Applicants are invited to submit an A3 mini-poster (in PDF
format) also containing the URL to a short video demonstration
describing their research and technology work.  Submission is open to
any researchers and innovators from both academia or industry. There
will be two categories: Student Technology and General
Technology. Each submission will be judged on the basis of technical
excellence, value of the work to the wider community and public
benefit, implementation of the idea and business potential. Applicants
with the most impressive technologies will be invited to take part in
a final dedicated demonstration session during the ICDP2019 conference
in London (16-18 December, University of Westminster), where each demo
will be judged by a panel of experts and participants of the ICDP
conference. The winners in each category will receive a prize of
500 and asked to present their work via a webinar disseminated
through the IET's Vision & Imaging Technical Network.
