The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) is launching the sixth European Biometrics Research and Industry Award 2012. This prestigious award is granted annually to individuals who have been judged by a panel of internationally respected experts to be making a significant contribution to the field of biometrics research in Europe.
The award is stimulating innovation in academic research as well as in industry. Thus biometric experts with either of the following profiles should submit their work. Academic researchers enrolled in the last or penultimate year of a Ph.D. program or who have obtained a Ph.D., with major focus on biometrics, from a European academic institution no later than two years before the given deadline, might consider applying for the award. Further industrial researchers employed by European companies whose core business is biometrics might consider applying for the award. The industry award will be granted to the candidate that has created the strongest impact for industry.
Applicants are asked to submit a research paper by June 30, 2012. These papers will be reviewed by a jury composed by internationally recognized experts in the field of biometrics who will judge the academic and scientific quality for the EAB academic research award and the novelty, impact, applicability and other business aspects for the EAB industry award.
Shortlisted candidates will be asked to present their research papers in front of the jury, the EAB members and the public audience on September 5, 2012 during the European Association for Biometric scientific symposium in Darmstadt, Germany.
The winner of the European Biometric Research Award 2012 will receive a commemorative medal and a 2.000 € honorarium. The winner will be selected by all attending Jury members.
