Vis 2002 Best Papers Award
For the first time this year, we have an award committee to select the IEEE Visualization Best Paper Award. The best case study, best poster, and best panel awards are still being decided by audience votes.

Here is a summary of the IEEE Visualization Best Paper Award selection procedure:
1. The decision on the best IEEE Visualization paper will be made by an award committee.
2. The award committee consists of five members, including the three papers chairs, one member of the IEEE Visualization Steering Committee, and one external member.
3. The committee will be chaired by one of the papers chairs.
4. If a member experiences a conflict of interest he or she will step out and will be replaced by another senior researcher from our community.
Chair: Markus Gross, ETH Zürich
1. In a preselection process, each papers chair will select his/her top five candidates based on reviews, scores, potential, and impact on our field.
2. The awards chair will compile a list of candidate papers (5-8) based on this preselection.
3. The candidate papers will be passed on to all members of the committee along with reviews and other supporting materials.
4. Each member will have to read all papers in advance and provide a ranked list to the award chair.
5. The award committee will meet twice for the conference: During a kick-off meeting at the beginning of the conference, and during a final meeting on Friday to make the decision.
6. The committee will set up a small prize to be conveyed by the award chair.
7. The list of candidate papers will be made available to the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) for possible inclusion into a special journal issue.
