Gregory Dudek receives the 2024 CS-Can Lifetime Achievement Award

Published: 29 May 2024

Professor Gregory Dudek of the School of Computer Science has received the 2024 CS-Can Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Awarded annually by Computer Science Canada/Informatique Canada (CS-Can/Info-Can), this award recognizes current or former faculty who have made exceptional contributions to the field of computer science in Canada. 

Over the course of his career, Professor Dudek has conducted trailblazing research on robot localization, video data summarization, and underwater robotics. In addition to his research, Professor Dudek’s role as Scientific Director for the NSERC Canadian Robotics Network has contributed to the ongoing growth and visibility of Canadian robotics internationally. 

CS-Can highlighted Professor Dudek’s commitment to both leadership and mentorship, writing: 

The fact that Canada is an international leader in robotics today can largely be attributed to his leadership. Further, his role in organizing major international conferences and serving as editor of major robotics journals reflects his commitment to the global research community. In teaching and mentorship, Dudek's contributions are equally outstanding. A co-author of a popular robotics textbook, he is recognized for inspiring and guiding students. His mentorship record, with a substantial percentage of students becoming professors or working in top industry research divisions, attests to his impact.
