SYSID Young author award
The award is meant to stimulate the involvement of young scientists and engineers in system identification, as well as to recognize top level contributions by the younger generation.
To be eligible, the candidate must be the first and presenting author of the paper and at the time of the event must be of max 30 years old.
The selection committee selects a number of finalists, on the basis of the nomination letters, the review reports, and the papers. Finalists are informed before the event.
