Based on the review results and presentations during the conference awards will be given in two categories:

  • Best Paper Award
  • IFAC Young Author Award

The “IFAC Young Author Award” is intended to stimulate the involvement of young scientists and engineers, as well as to recognize top-level contributions of the younger generation and to support their careers and will be announced to the best paper where the first and presenting author holds PhD-student status at the time of paper submission.

The initial filtering for the best papers will be based on the reviews given to each paper. Afterwards an international committee will judge the quality of the nominated papers based on the technical soundness, awareness of literature, technological contribution, originality of the concepts, style and clarity, technical presentation and importance of results.

The awards will be given at the closing ceremony and announced on the website of the conference/symposium.
