VGTC Virtual Reality best dissertation award 2023 - 2nd call
The IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee and the IEEE VR Steering Committee are pleased to solicit nominations for the 2023 Best Dissertation Award in the broad field of Virtual and Augmented Reality. One award will be given each year, and the recipient will receive complimentary registration to the IEEE Virtual Reality Conference, where they will be invited to make a short presentation.
Submission Deadline: July 15, 2022
Results Announced: March 2023 at the IEEE VR Conference
This award is given every year to the author of the best doctoral dissertation in the broad field of virtual reality, defended within the preceding two calendar years. Eligible nominees for the 2023 award include the authors of all relevant dissertations defended between January 1, 2020 and July 1, 2022.
Resubmissions of unsuccessful nominations from prior years are welcome, as long as the dissertation defense date remains within the period of eligibility. If the dissertation defense date and the dissertation filing date are sufficiently different as to create ambiguity in determining the appropriate start of the period of eligibility for the dissertation to be considered for this award, the candidate may elect for their work to be classified as belonging to the period they prefer; however once defined this determination cannot be changed, so that no work may be considered more than twice. There is no limit on the number of nominations that can be made for candidates affiliated with any single institution or advisor.
Individuals may nominate themselves, or may be nominated by their academic advisor(s). Nomination materials should be sent by email to the evaluation committee chair, Maud Marchal, through the following form: https://forms.gle/cumQmNCuQsARx5WY6
Nominations must include:
- Basic information about the nomination:
- The title and abstract of the dissertation;
- The name of the candidate;
- The name of the candidate’s primary advisor;
- The name of the institution where the dissertation was defended;
- The date of the dissertation defense;
- A 1-2 page summary of the significance of the dissertation research;
- An electronic copy of the full dissertation or a pointer to where it can be obtained;
- One letter of recommendation, up to 2 pages in length, ideally from the candidate’s primary advisor;
- A list of publications, awards, and other recognition by peers produced from the dissertation work.
All nominations will be carefully reviewed by a committee of experts. Factors that will be considered when choosing the winning entry include: the significance and impact of the scholarly contributions of the work, and the clarity with which these contributions are communicated.
