How to apply to the Distinguished Service Awards

The board of the European Artificial Intelligence Association, EurAI, invites nominations for the EurAI Distinguished Service Award 2024.

The EurAI Distinguished Service Award is presented annually to two individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the European AI community. The award recognizes their excellent service and dedication towards advancing the field of AI.

The past recipients of the award are: Erik Sandewall-2012 (University of Linköping, Sweden), Luigia Carlucci Aiello-2014 (Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy), Ramon López de Màntaras-2016 (IIIA-CSIC, Spain), Wolfgang Bibel-2018 (TU Darmstadt, Germany), Alan Bundy-2020 (University of Edinburgh, Scotland), Luc Steels-2022 (University Pompeu Fabra, Spain) and in 2023 (first year with two awardees) Mike Wooldridge (University of Oxford, UK) and Barry O'Sullivan (University College Cork, Ireland).

EurAI fellows, as well as EurAI member societies, can nominate. Recipients must be members of a EurAI society.

The nomination process entails the following steps:

  • Nominations should contain a 1-2 page justification explaining why the candidate is considered appropriate for the award.
  • Nominations of candidates should also include a proposed citation to appear on the award certificate. Typically, this citation begins with the text "For contributions to the field of artificial intelligence through sustained service ..." followed by a phrase of, ideally, not more than twenty carefully chosen words that reflect this nominee's demonstrated service to the European AI community.
  • Identify the EurAI society of which the person is a member.

Nominations should be sent in a single PDF by July 7th, 2024, to executive-secretary@eurai.org.
