Awards Committee

The Awards Committee shall be responsible for recommending various forms of recognition for noteworthy contributions to the fields of interest to the Society. This committee shall be responsible for administering the Society’s awards programs and shall also see that deserving members are nominated for awards and prizes administered by the IEEE and other relevant organizations.

At least one-half of the members of the Awards Committee shall hold Fellow or Senior Member grade. The committee Chair may appoint sub-committees for individual Society awards, as well as representatives to committees involved in the selection of other awards in which the Society participates.

The committee shall review the Society’s awards from time-to-time, and may propose modifications to existing society awards, as well as additional Society awards, subject to approval by the Board of Governors and the IEEE TAB.
