Conference Best Paper Award for Industry

The Conference Best Paper Award for Industry shall recognize the author(s) of an ICIP and ICASSP/GlobalSIP paper of exceptional industrial merit and industrial impact dealing with a subject related to the Society’s technical scope. To be eligible for consideration, the paper must have been submitted to ICIP or ICASSP/GlobalSIP. The GlobalSIP eligible papers will be considered for the Award during the next ICASSP. Judging shall be based on general quality, novelty, maturity of the technology and industrial impact of the described work. Prototype, demo or video of prototype/demo presented at these conferences can also be considered for the award. The candidate(s) are not required to be IEEE members. Candidates are not required to be working in industry at the time of nomination or when the paper was written. Current members of the Conference Award Evaluation Committee are ineligible. Self-nominations are accepted. The prize shall consist of $500 per author (up to a maximum of $1500 per award) and a certificate. In the event that there are more than three authors, the maximum prize shall be divided equally among all authors and each shall receive a certificate. One award may be presented annually at ICIP’s Opening Ceremony and one award may be presented annually at ICASSP’s Opening Ceremony. The award will not be conferred in any given year for which there are no suitable candidates identified. The Award will be announced via the conference websites. Nominations can be submitted through two methods: 1) The authors will be given the option to nominate their paper for the award at the paper submission step; or 2) The reviewers will be asked to indicate whether a paper is award quality, as is the case for the regular conference paper awards. The nominated papers will be evaluated by a committee, consisting of members of the Technical Program Committee of the conference (including Area Chairs or Technical Program Committee Chairs). The Committee will consist of five members.

Nominations should be submitted to the respective conference and due dates will be noted on the respective conference website. Nominations can be submitted through two methods:

  1. The authors will be given the option to nominate their paper for the award at the paper submission step; or
  2. The reviewers will be asked to indicate whether a paper is award quality, as is the case for the regular conference paper awards.
