This photo of Jean-Pierre Le Cadre was taken at the Paris FUSION Conference. 

The Jean-Pierre Le Cadre Award is intended to recognize excellence among researchers and scientists in information fusion, which was the core motivation behind Jean-Pierre Le Cadre’s career. The Jean-Pierre Le Cadre Award is given for the best paper of the annual International Conference on Information Fusion and often includes a signed copy of a recently published book in the area of information fusion. The Jean-Pierre Le Cadre Award is managed by the organizing committee for the annual conference. Past recipients of the Jean-Pierre Le Cadre Award are summarized below.
