ASME-DSCD Robotics Technical Committee Best Paper Award Process

The DSC Robotics Technical Committee grants two awards: a student best paper award and an overall best paper award. The papers eligible for the former award will have a robotics emphasis and need to have a student listed as a first author, who will also need to present the paper during DSCC. The latter award is reserved for papers with a robotics emphasis, but without any particular requirement regarding authorship, although it must be presented during the DSCC by one of the listed authors. In each case, a plaque and $750 honorarium will be presented at the next DSC Division meeting.

Process: For each award, a "down select" to approximately 5 papers will be made based on a combination of factors: 1) conference paper reviews provided by the publication chair; 2) feedback from former TC Chairs, current TC officers, and session chairs, based on presentations at the DSCC; and 3) nominations by members of the DSCD members. The best paper will then be selected from the remaining (approximately 5 for each category) papers following a detailed paper review by the current TC officers. Please send your nominations to James Dabney ( by email, specifying for which award you would like to be considered.
