Award information

The IEEE Innovation in Societal Infrastructure Award was established in 2011.

Sponsors: Hitachi, Ltd. and IEEE Computer Society

Presented to: An individual, team, or multiple recipients up to three

Scope: For significant technological achievements and contributions to the establishment, development, and proliferation of innovative societal infrastructure systems through the application of information technology with an emphasis on distributed computing systems

Prize: The award consists of a bronze medal, certificate, and cash honorarium.

Basis for judging: In the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: impact on society with an emphasis on contributions to efficient infrastructure systems (e.g. breadth of use, energy savings, resource utilization, cost efficiency) as well as market size/revenue; originality of systems concept; leadership; impact on innovation; and extension to further technological development.

Nomination deadline: 31 January

Notification: Recipients are typically approved during the June IEEE Board of Directors meeting, usually held towards the end of the month. Recipients and their nominators will be notified following the meeting. Subsequently, the nominators of unsuccessful candidates will be notified of the status of their nomination.

Presentation: IEEE policy requires that its awards be presented at major IEEE events that are in keeping with the nature of the award and the cited achievement. The International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS), co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, is considered a desirable venue for the presentation of the award, but not necessary.
