My blog today is about nominations that are open for two prestigious awards. The first is the Early Career Award given by CEDA. The second is the Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to EDA, jointly sponsored by CEDA and the EDA Consortium. Both are presented annually.
The Early Career Award honors an individual who has made innovative and substantial technical contributions to EDA in the early stages of his or her career.
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. The award is based on contributions measured by technical merit and creativity in performing research, and will be assessed based on the published record of the individual and references accompanying the nomination.
The award is intended to be equally available to contributors from academic and industrial institutions. Some of the specific criteria used will be the current and potential impact of the individual’s contributions, as well as contributions to the profession at large. (more…)
