The nominee shall be the proponent and/or the organizer of a pattern, or a focused single event, in AESS’s fields of interest. The candidate does not have to be an IEEE or AESS member; however, the event must qualify as one approved by the AESS BoG to be within its established fields of interest. Current voting members of the AESS BoG or current members of the Award Committee are ineligible for the award while in that status.
Basis for Judging: 

Factors that will be considered are:  innovation in content and/or organizational approach; constructively bringing together industry, academia and government; visionary events that lead to new AESS services and/or advances in the fields; or those that advance AESS on a global basis; and those for which the candidate grows capability over multiple events and time.

Presented at any one of the AESS sponsored conferences, but preference should be given to those conferences that host the twice-yearly Board of Governer’s meeting.
