The ICDAR Award Program is an established program designed to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of Document Analysis and Recognition in one or more of the following areas:
Every two years, two awards categories are presented. Namely, the Young Investigator Award (less than 40 years old at the time the award is made), and the Outstanding Achievements Award. Each award will consist of a token gift and a suitably inscribed certificate. The recipient of the Outstanding Achievements award will be invited to give the opening key note speech at the current ICDAR conference, introduced by the recipient from the previous conference.
Nominations are invited for the 2007 ICDAR Awards in both categories.
The nomination packet should include the following:
A nomination is usually put forward by a researcher (preferably from a different Institution than the nominee) who is knowledgeable of the scientific achievements of the nominee, and who organizes letters of support.
Submission procedure is strictly confidential, and self nominations are not allowed.
Please send these, preferably as a single pdf file, to the chair of the Awards Committee, Jianying Hu. Deadline for receipt of nominations is May 1st, 2007 but early submissions are strongly encouraged. For further information, please contact:
