IEEE Power Electronics Emerging Technology Award
The IEEE Power Electronics Emerging Technology Award of the IEEE Power Electronics Society is established to recognize engineers and researchers who have made outstanding technical contributions to one or more emerging research topics in power electronics. The emerging areas in power electronics are evolving. At least three emerging research topics will be announced each year with the call for nominations, which are decided annually by PELS High Performance and Emerging Technologies Technical Committee (TC6). The award recipient must be an active member of IEEE. There are no other restrictions as to nationality, age, gender, or IEEE member grade. An award will be given to a single person only.
For the 2020 Emerging Technology Award, we are seeking nominations from the following three topic areas:
- WBG based power devices and their application
- Wireless power transfer
- Electrification of aviation
The criteria considered by the Award Committee include:
The Award consists of an award plaque and a one-time honorarium of $1,500 USD. In addition, a maximum and total amount of $1,500 USD will be available
- to the recipient as reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs incurred to attend the place of the presentation of the award
- to cover any conference registration fees that the award recipient would have to pay to attend the award ceremony.
Presentation: As a rule, the award is presented during ECCE America. Taking into account the international character of PELS and its members, it may also be presented at another PELS conference upon mutual agreement.
If you would like to nominate an IEEE member for the IEEE Power Electronics Emerging Technology Award, please go to our IEEE Society Awards Application System when the nomination period opens on 1 January 2020 To identify as nominator, you will be asked in the beginning of this process to log in your existing IEEE account or to register for a new one. Subsequently, you should choose IEEE Power Electronics Emerging Technology Award and enter the required data and documents.
Nominations received up to March 31st will be considered in the current year. The award is administrated by the IEEE PELS Technical Committee (TC) of High Performance and Emerging Technologies. If you have any questions please send them to PELS Awards Committee via email@example.com.
