The EMVA Young Professional Award is an annual award to honor the outstanding and innovative work of a student or a young professional in the field of machine vision, computer vision or image processing.
It is the goal of the European Machine Vision Association -EMVA- to further innovation in our industry, to contribute to the important aspect of dedicated machine vision education and to provide a bridge between research and industry.
With our Young Professional Award we would like to specifically encourage students, young scientists from European Institutions to focus on challenges in the field of machine vision and to apply latest research results and findings in computer vision to the practical needs of our industry.
The criteria of the works to be presented for the EMVA Award are:
(1) Outstanding innovative work in the field of vision technology with industrial relevance. The targeted industry is free of choice. Commercialization should be possible but is not required to be implemented already.
(2) Work has to be made within the last 12 months by a student or young researcher during their education at a European institution or in collaboration with a European institution. Meanwhile the applicant may have entered the professional field.

The winner of the award will be announced at the 13th EMVA Business Conference 2015 taking place June 11th-13th in Athens, Greece, and will have the opportunity to present the awarded work to the machine vision industry leaders from Europe and abroad. This presentation will be covered by the international machine vision press leading to further publication options on an international level.
