Awards and Award Finalists
At the Senior Program Committee (SPC) meeting, the Awards Chairs and the SPC will intersect the set of highly-reviewed papers with the criteria for each of the six paper awards. Papers will be eligible to be considered in more than one category. Based on this intersection, a set of semifinalist papers for each award will be chosen. These papers are then sent to subcommittees, one for each award. These subcommittees independently review the papers to arrive at a set of finalists for each award. Award winners will be chosen by the subcommittees based on the quality of the paper and the presentation at IROS 2015.
