J. K. Aggarwal Prize

Call for Nominations for the 2024 J. K. Aggarwal Prize

  • Extended Deadline: April 21, 2024; the nomination, endorsements and any other materials related to the nomination must be complete and final by this date.

A copy of the completed form is emailed to the person submitting it, the chair of the committee, the secretariat, and the webmaster (for redundancy and troubleshooting purposes). Revised submissions are accepted up until the final deadline. To make changes, resubmit the form with the new information. Only the most recent submission will be used to evaluate the nominee.

The International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2024 J. K. Aggarwal Prize, given in honor of Professor J. K. Aggarwal. Professor Aggarwal is widely recognized for his extensive contributions to the field of pattern recognition and for his participation in IAPR's activities.

This biennial prize is given to a young scientist, under the age of 40 at the date of the final deadline for nominations, who has brought a substantial contribution to a field that is relevant to the IAPR community and whose research work has had a major impact on the field. The 2024 prize will be presented at the

27th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2024)
Kolkata, India
December 1-5, 2024

The prize recipient is expected to present an invited talk at the conference and to provide a contribution to the special issue of Pattern Recognition Letters that will include extended versions of all papers that received an IAPR award at the most recent ICPR.

The prize recipient shall be selected by the J. K. Aggarwal Prize Committee, subject to approval by the IAPR Governing Board, upon nomination by a member of a national member society of IAPR and by endorsement of four members, representing at least two member societies different from that of the nominators and nominee.

Members of the IAPR Executive Committee, as well as of the J. K. Aggarwal Prize Committee, shall be ineligible for the prize and may not serve as nominators or endorsers.

Links to the nomination and endorsement forms can be found below. Only complete applications will be considered for the 2024 J. K. Aggarwal Prize.
