Descriptions of CAIAC’s Awards

The CAIAC Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest honour bestowed by CAIAC. It is presented to individuals who have distinguished themselves through outstanding research excellence in Artificial Intelligence during the course of their academic career. The award is for lifetime achievement rather than for a single contribution. Nominees should have an academic career of at least 25 years after obtaining their Doctorate.

The CAIAC Distinguished Service Award is the honour bestowed by CAIAC to researchers who have distinguished themselves through outstanding service to the Canadian Artificial Intelligence community during the course of their career.
