IEEE Virtual Reality Best Dissertation Award

The IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee and the IEEE VR  
Steering Committee are pleased to introduce a new annual award for the Best  
Dissertation in the broad field of Virtual and Augmented Reality.  One  
award will be given each year, and the recipient will receive a cash prize  
of $500 along with a free registration for the IEEE Virtual Reality  
Conference, where they will be invited to make a short presentation.

Deadline:  December 31, 2015


All dissertations that have been successfully defended during the two  
calendar year period prior to the award deadline (e.g. January 1, 2014 -  
December 31, 2015 for the 2016 award) are eligible for consideration.

In the future, resubmissions of unsuccessful nominations from prior years  
will be welcomed, as long as the dissertation defense date remains within  
the period of eligibility.

If the initial dissertation defense date and the final dissertation filing  
date are sufficiently different 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 petition 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 from any  
single institution or advisor.


Nomination materials should be sent by email to <[log in to unmask]> and  
must include:

       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, including references if applicable;

       An electronic copy of the full dissertation or a pointer to where  
it can be obtained

       One letter of recommendation, up to 1 page in length, ideally from  
the candidate's primary advisor.


All nominations will be carefully reviewed by a committee of experts,  
selected by the IEEE VR Steering Committee.  Factors that will be  
considered when choosing the winning entry include: the significance and  
impact of the technical contributions of the work, and the clarity with  
which these contributions are communicated.
