About the CIPPRS Doctoral Dissertation Award
The Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society (CIPPRS) Doctoral Dissertation Award is given annually to the top thesis in the areas covered by the Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) completed at a Canadian institution.
The selection committee for 2011 included Philippe Giguere (Laval) and Greg Mori (SFU). Calls for nominations was made to the Canadian vision and robotics and CRV communities and a total of 8 very strong nominations were received. The selection decision was difficult, speaking to the amount of high-quality computer and robot vision related research being conducted in Canada. In the end, from the deep field of nominees, two awards were decided--a winner and an honourable mention:
The CIPPRS Doctoral Dissertation Award 2011 Honourable Mention goes to
Dr. Chris McIntosh

The CIPPRS Doctoral Dissertation Award 2011 goes to
