One best paper award and two honorable mention awards are given to the top three contributions of the Forum Media Technology. The best paper award is endowed with EUR 1,000 prize money thanks to our generous sponsor, the State of Lower Austria, Section Science and Research.
The award is based on the scientific excellence of the paper as well as the presentation performance of the authors at the conference. The selection process for the best paper award follows a three-step process: First, PC members indicate whether a paper should be considered for the award. Based on that, the paper chairs decide on a short list of three nominated papers for the award and the selected papers’ authors are informed about their nomination. The final decision will be made by an anonymous best paper committee who take into account both the paper as well as the presentation to make their final decision.
