IFAC Journal Awards

The journals of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) award best paper prizes for 1-3 outstanding contributions which were published in the three years preceding the IFAC World Congress. In 2020, three of these awards were won by researchers of the Complex Dynamical Systems (CDS) group at ACIN. We would like to congratulate the authors for this major success!

The Control Engineering Practice Paper Prize Award 2020 was awarded to

  • L. Jadachowski, A. Steinboeck and A. Kugi for the paper „State estimation and advanced control of the 2D temperature field in an experimental oscillating annealing device“ published in: Control Engineering Practice, Volume 78, Sept., 2018, Pages 116-128.

The Control Engineering Practice Paper Prize is awarded for outstanding contributions to the practical application of control techniques and advanced control theory, documented in a paper published in Control Engineering Practice. At each IFAC World Congress the prize is awarded to the authors of three selected papers published in the journal in the three years preceding the Congress. The prize funds are provided by the publisher of Control Engineering Practice, Elsevier Ltd.

The Mechatronics Paper Prize Award 2020 was awarded to

  • S. Flixeder, T. Glück, and A. Kugi for the paper „Force-based cooperative handling and lay-up of deformable materials: Mechatronic design, modeling, and control of a demonstrator“ published in Mechatronics, Volume 47, 2017, Pages 246–261
  • M. Saxinger, L. Marko, A. Steinboeck, and A. Kugi for the paper „Active rejection control for unknown harmonic disturbances of the transverse deflection of steel strips with control input, system output, sensor output, and disturbance input at different positions“, published in Mechatronics, Volume 56, 2018, Pages 73-86.

The Mechatronics Paper Prize is awarded for outstanding contributions to the field of mechatronics documented in a paper published in the IFAC Journal Mechatronics. At each IFAC World Congress the prize is awarded to the authors of three selected papers published in the journal in the three years preceding the Congress. The prize funds are provided by the publisher of Mechatronics Elsevier Ltd.

BOP Challenge 2019 Award

Kiru Park presented the paper “Pix2Pose: Pixel-Wise Coordinate Regression of Objects for 6D Pose Estimation” (K. Park, T. Patten, M. Vincze) at the 5th International Workshop on Recovering 6D Object Pose, organized at ICCV 2019, October 28, Seoul, Korea.

The BOP Challenge 2019 (Benchmark for 6D Object Pose Estimation), whose goal is to capture the state of the art in estimating the 6D pose, was part of this workshop and the methods Mr. Park described in his paper won an award as the best performing method for two datasets, namely YCB-Video and Rutgers Amazon Picking Challenge.
