MMP and MECA Juries & Evaluation

MMP Evaluation Process

The evaluation process is confidential and completely independent of the prize sponsors and its directors. The jury independently scores the submitted projects and selects the winner on the basis of a list of criteria, including the following:

The Jury’s selection process is by consensus rather than majority vote. If a consensus is not reached, then no award is made. The decisions of the jury are final. The jury reserves the right to withhold the prize in any given year, depending on the quality of the applications received.

If a jury member is associated with a submitted project, that jury member will be excluded from the evaluation of that project.

Only the winner is announced. Candidates who are not awarded a prize are eligible and encouraged to resubmit revised work in subsequent years.

The winner will be announced at the annual CapoCaccia Workshop on Neuromorphic Engineering and Telluride Workshop on Neuromorphic Engineering.

Authors of winning submissions automatically grant the Organizers the right to use any part of the submitted material for any non-commercial purpose. By nominating for the prize, abstract authors warrant that they hold all necessary copyrights to grant this permission. Abstract authors retain copyright ownership of their documents.
