On October 26, 2022, Maya Çakmak received her CRA-WP Anita Borg Early Career Award (BECA) from board member Nancy Amato in Kyoto, Japan at the 2022 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). CRA-WP is proud to celebrate her work in research and development of in-home assistant robots that can provide independence to those with motor impairments, allow elderly to age in the comfort of their homes, and improve quality of life for users.
CRA-WP Early Career Award recipients are given the opportunity to receive the award at a conference of their choosing. CRA-WP provides travel expenses support (up to $1,500) and works with the conference organizing committee to have the award presented to each of the awardees.
