EMVA opens calls for young professional award

The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has announced a call for papers for its 2018 Young Professional Award.

The annual award honours outstanding and innovative work from a student or young professional in the field of machine vision or computer vision. The aim is to encourage students and young scientists from European institutions to apply research in computer vision to the practical needs of the machine vision industry.

Last year’s award was presented to Boaz Arad, a PhD student at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, who was honoured for his work on computer vision and hyperspectral imaging.

The winner will be announced at the EMVA business conference, to take place from 7 to 9 June in Dubrovnik, Croatia. They will have the opportunity to present their work to machine vision industry leaders.

Applications need to be submitted no later than 1 April 2018. The criteria for the award as well as more information can be downloaded here.
