Past SIYA-SII Winners

SIYA-SII Winners

The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) aims to be a central academic society in the fields of measurement, control, and system integration with an international presence. We are focusing on cooperation and support with related organizations and encouraging young people who will lead the next generation for internationalization.
Therefore, the SICE International Young Authors Award (SIYA) was established with the aim of encouraging the research of young researchers and supporting their international activities.

The SIYA Award is given to presenters at IEEE / RSJ IROS and IEEE / SICE SII.
