J. K. Aggarwal Prize


Deadline for Submission of Nomination and Endorsement Forms is April 30, 2016

The International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) is pleased to announce a call for nominations for the sixth J.K. Aggarwal Prize in honor of Professor J.K. Aggarwal.

Professor Aggarwal is widely recognized for his extensive contributions to the field of pattern recognition and for his participation in IAPR’s activities.

The recipient is a young scientist, under the age of 40 at the date of the deadline for nominations, who has brought a substantial contribution to a field that is relevant to the IAPR community and whose research work has had a major impact on the field. The prize consists of a cash amount and a suitably inscribed certificate. The prize is derived from interest income from a special fund set up for this purpose.

The prize recipient shall be selected by the J. K. Aggarwal Prize Committee, subject to approval by the IAPR Governing Board, upon nomination by a member of a national member society of IAPR and by endorsement of four members, representing at least two member societies different from that of the nominators and nominee. Neither the nominator nor the endorsers are required to be IAPR Fellows.

Members of the IAPR Executive Committee, as well as of the J.K. Aggarwal Prize Committee, shall be ineligible for the prize and may not serve as nominators or endorsers.

The 2016 prize will be presented at the

23rd International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR)
Cancun, Mexico
December 4-8, 2016

The prize recipient is expected to present an invited talk at the conference and to provide a contribution to the special issue of Pattern Recognition Letters, which will include extended versions of all papers that received an IAPR award at the ICPR 2016.

The nomination must be made using the special nomination and endorsement forms, and must be received no later than April 30, 2016. Both completed nomination and endorsement forms must be submitted in electronic form.
