Basis for Judging

Quality, originality, and significance of contribution, and contributions to CAS Society.

Eligibility

Any member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, regardless of membership rank or age, is eligible for the annual Award. The Award may be granted only to nominees who have pioneered and developed innovative research, executed in either academe or industry that has resulted in either industrial applications or commercial products recognized widely for their utility. The time period over which the cognizant research was executed is immaterial.

Nomination Details
