Longuet-Higgins Prize for Fundamental Contributions in Computer Vision

Longuet-Higgins Prize for Fundamental Contributions in Computer Vision is will be awarded at IEEE CVPR for papers that have “withstood the test of time.” Named after H. Christopher Longuet-Higgins, this award aims to recognize papers from CVPR meeting of 10 years back that have had a fundamental impact on the field of Computer Vision. More specifically, “The contribution of Longuet-Higgins to computer vision and pattern recognition was a series of sudden and pinpoint advances resulting from extended scholarship rather than an accretion of archived output.  Thus the Longuet-Higgins prize rewards an individual advance, represented by a single conference paper—underlining the special role of conference publications as the harbingers of innovation in this discipline.” This award was established in 2005.

The award papers are selected by a small committee, drawn from across the field by the conference chairs of a specific conference, and as far as possible excluding those who were authors of papers in the source conference.

Following is the list of winner from CVPR 2005, when this award was first instituted.
