Control Systems Technology Award

To recognize outstanding contributions to control systems technology either in design and implementation or project management.

Prize:
$2,000, photo-engraved Plaque for each recipient, and travel expenses to the CDC for one recipient (round trip restricted minimal coach air fare, conference registration, and up to 4 conference-rate hotel nights for a 3-day conference, and up to 5 conference-rate hotel nights for a 4-day conference) If the prize is awarded to a group, members of the group will equally split the cash portion of the prize.
Funding:
Funded by the IEEE Control Systems Society.
Presentation:
At the Awards Ceremony of the CSS.
Basis for Judgement:
The technical merit of the outstanding control systems technology contribution in either design and implementation, or project management. The broader impacts of the contribution towards the benefit of society at large and towards the CSS diversity and inclusiveness goals in terms of geography, gender, and work sector.
Eligibility:
Either an individual or a team.
Nomination Details:

Nominations and reference letters are due by May 15 and must be submitted using the CSS Awards Nomination system at awards.paperplaza.net.
