The prestigious IAPR Fellow Award was introduced in 1994 and since then is biennially conferred on persons to acknowledge their distinguished contributions to the field of pattern recognition and to IAPR activities. According to the Constitution and Bylaws of IAPR, the number of fellows elected every two years must not exceed 0.25% of the total IAPR membership. Both service to IAPR and scientific contributions to the field of pattern recognition are taken into account in the selection process. The IAPR Fellow Committee is in charge to perform the selection process and solicits nominations of high quality.
In July, 2009, the IAPR Newsletter began a series of Feature articles called "Getting to Know IAPR Fellows". Through this series, IAPR Fellows have shared with the IAPR Community technical information about their research and historical information about their careers.
