By tradition, ICDAR makes several awards to recognize outstanding research papers presented at the conference. These awards are decided by committees composed of leading members of the ICDAR community appointed by the program co-chairs. Short lists of candidate papers are prepared for the committees to review, after which voting takes place to determine the award winners. Conflicts of interest involving the candidate papers are considered when deciding who will serve on an award committee, and no one with a conflict is permitted to serve on the committee for the award in question
All submitted papers are automatically eligible for Best Paper and Best Poster awards. To be eligible for the more specific awards, authors must confirm their eligibility when the paper is first submitted using the Easy Chair system:
Best Student Paper. Authors must check the submission form box certifying that most of the work was done by the student listed as the first author, making the paper eligible for consideration for the Best Student Paper Award. The student author must have been a registered student at the time of paper submission.
Best Industry Paper. Authors must check the submission form box certifying that the work was conducted in an industrial setting and at least one of the authors is from a company or technology transfer organization, making this paper eligible for consideration for the Best Industry Paper Award.
In addition, to receive an award, the paper in question must be presented “live” at the conference by one of the co-authors. No exceptions will be made to this rule.
