Description: This annual award recognizes individuals with outstanding and innovative contributions to the different areas of nanotechnology that are represented by technical committees (TCs) as organizational entities of the Nanotechnology Council (NTC), usually within the past 10 and not more than 15 years. Note: Nominations from any member of the NTC Technical Activities Committee within the last three years (including the nomination year) ONLY. No self-nominations. The awardee(s) will be selected by a committee composed of the Chair and 3 members. The Chair is recommended by the NTC VP of Technical Activities and then approved by the NTC President; members of the committee are recommended by the Chair and then approved by the NTC President.

Prize: Up to 3 awards will be presented each year. Each award consists of an honorarium of $500 and a certificate.

Eligibility: Nominated individuals must be an IEEE member and NTC participant for at least 4 years and an NTC TC member for at least 2 years. The award is given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of nanotechnology within the last 15 years, where the nomination’s year is counting as the first of the last 15 years.

Voting members of the NTC Executive Committee (ExCom) and previous award winners in the same technical area are not eligible for the award. Also, previous awardees of IEEE Nanotechnology Council Technical Achievement, Pioneer and Early Career Awards in Nanotechnology are not eligible for the award.

Previous award winners are not eligible for substantially the same achievements (per IEEE Policies 4.4: An individual shall receive only one award for a given achievement, unless the significance merits a higher award, which may be given in the following year or thereafter).

Basis for Judging: Each member of the committee, evaluates each nominee on several aspects, including but not limited to: impact, quality of technical accomplishments and NTC technical activities, relevance of the topic, its influence in nanotechnology based communities in at least one research topic in nanotechnology.

The Chair will generate for each nomination a scoring table (with averages) reflecting the scores of the voting members of the committee. The range of the score by each member of the committee is from 0-5. The range of the score by each member of the committee is from 0-5. The Chair will generate for each nomination a scoring table (with averages) to be distributed to voting members of the Committee. The Committee will rank a final pool of up to 3 nominated papers and recommend the winner. The nominations and recommendations will be presented in a report to the NTC ExCom for voting in its May meeting. The Committee Chair will not vote except to break ties.

Presentation: The awards will be presented at the annual IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology (NANO) banquet. Attendance is mandatory to receive the award, but no travel allowances are provided.

Description: Each year the Council will provide an award for the best Technical Committee (TC) for the prior year. The TC Awardee is chosen by a committee appointed by the VP Technical Activities. The TC Award Evaluation Committee is comprised of the Technical Activities Awards Chair and 2 chairs of NTC-financially supported conferences.

Prize: The awardee recognition may take the form of one of the following:

  1. Hotel support for 2 TC Leaders/member for 4 nights at IEEE NANO Conference
  2. IEEE NANO registration fee for 2 TC leaders/members
  3. $1200 to $1500 for the recognized TC to spend on NTC conference support for its member(s)

Eligibility: All TCs are eligible.

Basis for Judging: The assessment should be over a year of work. Moreover, the recognition should reflect the work pertaining to the preceding year, e.g., the TCs’ 2018 work would be used to choose an Awardee at the beginning of 2019.

Presentation: The award will be presented by the President (or his/her representative) at the annual IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology (NANO) banquet. Attendance is mandatory to receive the award, but no travel allowance is provided.

Schedule:

  • Submission of nominations: Email by December 15th to the VP Technical Activities.
