Award Nominations are due by 1 December 2018
(Extended from 31 July 2018)
The Society Pioneer Award has been given annually since 1949 to an individual or team for “contributions significant to bringing into being systems that are still in existence today.” These systems fall within the specific areas of interest to the society, that is, electronic or aerospace systems. The contributions for which the award is bestowed are to have been made at least twenty (20) years prior to the year of the award, to ensure proper historical perspective. It is not a condition that any awardees should have been sole or original inventor or developer, “significant contribution” of a specific nature is the key criterion.
The winner(s) will receive a handsome cast bronze plaque and a $3,000 prize, usually at an AESS sponsored or co-sponsored conference in the fall. Honoring such persons and recalling their achievements is considered an important function of our professional organization.
The AESS is currently seeking nominations for the 2018 Pioneer Award.
Nominations are due by 1 December 2018 (extended from 31 July 2018). Please nominate a worthy candidate, seeing your candidate win is a rewarding experience. Nominations may be carried over to succeeding years for continued considerations. Nomination submissions should be sent via email directly to Erwin Gangl, AES Society Pioneer Award Chair.
