The IEEE-SA Awards Process

Nominations for IEEE-SA awards are solicited from all members of the standards development community. The IEEE-SA Awards and Recognition Committee (ArCom) is responsible for administering the IEEE-SA awards program. Approval of IEEE standards award recipients and the submittal of nominations for awards sponsored by other organizations are also handled by ArCom. All nominations and deliberations are kept confidential. Individuals chosen to receive awards are honored each year at the IEEE-SA Awards Ceremony in December.

Submitting Your Nomination


  • Nominees, nominators, and endorsers cannot currently be:
  • Nominee cannot be deceased (no posthumous nominations).
  • Nominee cannot have previously received an award in the category for which the nomination is submitted.

Thank you for your interest in the IEEE-SA Awards. Your nomination continues the tradition of honoring outstanding participation in standards development activities.

"Many challenges remain to be overcome, so may we never forget that. This award will ensure that I, for one, do not."

- Melvin Reynolds, Recipient, 2014 IEEE-SA International Award
