PAMI Mark Everingham Prize
This Prize is to commemorate Mark Everingham and to encourage others to follow in his footsteps by acting to further progress in the computer vision community as a whole. An appreciation of Mark Everingham's contributions is at http://bit.ly/markever. The prize shall be given to a researcher, or a team of researchers, who have made a selfless contribution of significant benefit to other members of the computer vision community. The award is given out by the IEEE Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI) Technical Committee. Candidates are nominated by the community in a window preceding ECCV or ICCV determined by the TCPAMI chair.
The Prize will be awarded annually at a major computer vision conference. In even numbered years it will be awarded at the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), and in odd numbered years it will be awarded at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV).
