Since 2015, the DAGM has annually granted the DAGM MVTec Dissertation Award. The Dissertation Award honors an outstanding dissertation successfully completed in the preceding year in the fields of pattern recognition, image processing, machine vision, and machine learning. An association with the DAGM is desirable. The Dissertation Award is donated by MVTec Software GmbH and consists of a financial award of 2500 euros. The dissertation is selected from all submissions by a jury appointed by the Executive Board and the Technical Committee of the DAGM. The DAGM MVTec Dissertation Award is presented during the DAGM annual conference GCPR. The award winner also receives a free full registration for the conference and for the accompanying workshops. The DAGM MVTec Dissertation Award honors outstanding dissertations of young scientists that have led to discernible progress in their respective fields of work. A paper can gain the desired significance both through viable theoretical knowledge and through its proven practical applicability.
