Tammy L. Blair Best Student Paper Award

You are here

The Tammy L. Blair Award is intended to encourage the involvement of young researchers and scientists in information fusion. It honors Tammy L. Blair’s commitment to ISIF. The Tammy L. Blair Award is given to recognize the best student papers at the annual International Conference on Information Fusion and includes cash prizes and travel grants. Awardees are often given 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 Tammy L. Blair Award are summarized below.
