I’m pleased to announce nominations have opened for the third annual IEEE CEDA Early Career Award. The award, to be presented at ICCAD in November, recognizes an individual who has made innovative and substantial technical contributions to EDA in the early stages of his or her career.
The award is based on contributions to EDA, measured by technical merit and creativity in performing research, and will be assessed by the published record of the individual and references accompanying the nomination. It is meant to be equally available to contributors from academic and commercial ventures.
Full members of the IEEE at any level, regular, senior or fellow grades, whose highest educational degree has been awarded no more than eight years prior to the date of the nomination deadline, are eligible.
Professor Igor L. Markov, associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Michigan, was the first recipient of this award. Dr. Daniel, Emanuel E. Landsman associate professor of Electrical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was the 2010 recipient.
Know of someone? You need to act fast for the deadline is Friday, April 15.
