The British Machine Vision Association has established a prize fund to commemorate the contribution made by the late Professor Geoff Sullivan to the advancement of the field of Computer Vision in the United Kingdom. The prize is considered for award, on an annual basis, to the best doctoral thesis submitted to a UK University, in the field of computer or natural vision.
Recommendations for the prize are considered by a Selection Panel appointed annually by the BMVA Executive Committee.
The decision of the Selection Panel is announced at the annual British Machine Vision Conference, at which the presentation will be made.
The BMVA Executive Committee seeks nominations for the Sullivan Prize for theses examined during the calendar year 2016. Internal examiners and supervisors may act as nominators, but the committee would like to receive an accompanying report and endorsement of the nomination from the external examiner of the thesis. The closing date for theses to be considered for the award of the 2017 prize is 30th March 2017.
