The German pattern recognition prize is awarded annually by the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM) to outstanding young researchers in the fields of machine learning and image recognition. This year’s winners are Prof. Christian Theobalt from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken and Prof. Andreas Krause from ETH Zürich.

Christian Theobalt received the award for his outstanding and pioneering scientific work in the field of three-dimensional reconstruction of static and dynamic scenes from camera images. He has done pioneering work on markerless motion measurement and co-founded the research area of markerless performance capture.
