Are nominations confidential?
We ask that, if possible, nominators and endorsers do not inform candidates that they are under consideration, since a limited number of recipients are chosen each year from among several worthy individuals.
Who are the judges?
The IEEE SA Awards and Recognition Committee (ArCom) is responsible for administering the IEEE SA awards program. After the nomination period closes, ArCom acts on behalf of the BOG to receive nominations and recommend candidates for BOG approval, as appropriate, for IEEE standards awards.
Why do I need to login to complete a nomination form?
Login allows nominators to track their nominations, and to send reminders to endorsers. This added feature is intended to provide secure connections, to assure your privacy and that of the candidates.
Can I use any browser to submit a nomination?
The online nomination platform works best in Chrome, Firefox, and/or Internet Explorer 11 and up.
