IEEE UP Section – Awards




General Award Criteria:


The following criteria are reviewed when selecting a recipient:
  • leadership in field;
  • breadth of work;
  • achievement in other fields;
  • inventive value (patents);
  • individual vs. group contribution;
  • publications (articles, etc.);
  • originality of contribution;
  • quality of nomination;
  • IEEE Society activities and honors;
  • quality of endorsements.

  • The importance of the quality of the nomination itself, and of the supporting endorsement letters, cannot be overemphasized. The nomination and endorsements should be as specific, accurate, and complete as possible. It is imperative that the true merits of the candidate be conveyed through this information. Keep in mind that in some cases those involved in the selection process may have no personal knowledge of the candidate and will lean heavily on the documentation for the information they need to make reasonable judgments.
