Ivan Petrovic Prize

The Ivan Petrovic prize is awarded annually at the eCAADe Conference for the best presentation by a young researcher (under 35 years of age).

The prize is awarded in memory of the former Vice President of eCAADe, Professor Ivan Petrovic, whose enthusiastic and energetic approach to research and education in Computer Aided Architectural design was an inspiration to many in the field.
