The International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) is pleased to announce a call for nominations for the King-Sun Fu Prize in honor of the memory of Professor King-Sun Fu. (Professor Fuís biography appeared in the IEEE Trans. PAMI, May 1986 and is also available at dataclustering.cse.msu.edu/KSFu_Biography.pdf).
Professor Fu was instrumental in the founding of IAPR, served as its first president, and is widely recognized for his extensive contributions to the field of pattern recognition.
This biennial prize is given to a living person in recognition of an outstanding technical contribution to the field of pattern recognition, and 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 nomination must be made by a member of a national member society of IAPR and by endorsement of at least five members, representing at least two member societies different from that of the nominator. The prize recipient shall be selected by the Prize Committee, subject to approval by the IAPR Governing Board. Members of the IAPR Executive Committee, as well as of the Prize Committee, shall be ineligible for the prize and may not serve as nominators or endorsers.
The 2012 prize will be presented at the
21st International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR)
The nomination must be made on special nomination and endorsement forms, and must be received by the Prize Committee Chairman no later than April 6, 2012.
