Awarding Policy and Winners

In 2017, IEEE CIS provides prizes (500USD/300USD/200USD) to winners of game competitions organised in IEEE conferences with the following constraints.

Game Competition Award Policy

Appointable game competitions:

  • Only game competitions organised in IEEE CIS conferences are considered (e.g. Fuzzy-IEEE, CEC, CIG, etc.).
  • Prizes are given if the competition has at least 5 submissions. Of course the sample controllers provided by the organisers are excluded.

Appointable candidates:

  • Student (PhD, Master, Bsc, high school,…, primary school)
  • (*) Young professional (within 8 years after the first degree. If someone got a bachelor 8 years ago, got a master 6 years ago and finished his/her PhD about 2 years ago is still eligible).
  • Student and Young professional are treated equally.
  • A team in which at least one of the main contributors is a student or a young professional.
  • The controller should beat all the sample controllers provided by the organisers.

(*) The IEEE CIS Young Professional Committee reserves the right of final interpretation of “young professional”.

Appointable winners:

The winners should be appointable candidates, then ranked as:

Category 1 - The appointable candidates present at the conference, by ranking of the controllers. If less than three appointable candidates present at the conference, then proceed with the category 2.

Category 2 - The appointable candidates who do not present at the conference, by ranking of the controllers (though possibly one of the non-appointable team members present at the conference).
