ICF AWARDS

Every four years, ICF  bestows four gold medals, to honor Takeo Yokobori, Alan Cottrell, George Irwin and Paul Paris, and one silver medal, to honor Constance Tipper, together with the award of several ICF Honorary Fellows. 

These are presented at the quaternary ICF conferences, and will next be presented at ICF-15, the 15th International Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, June 13-18, 2021.
