IEEE Life Members' Prize in Electrical History

The IEEE Life Members' Prize in Electrical History was established by the IEEE Life Members (who fund the prize) and is administered by the Society for the History of Technology. The prize recognizes the best paper in electrical history published during the previous year. Any historical paper published in a learned journal or magazine is eligible if it treats the art or engineering aspects of electrotechnology and its practitioners. Electrotechnology encompasses power, electronics, telecommunications, and computer science. The prize consists of a cash award of $500 and a certificate. 

The committee invites submissions for the IEEE Life Members' prize, which will be presented at the Society's annual meeting.
