Hendrik W. Bode Lecture Prize

To recognize distinguished contributions to control systems science or engineering.

Prize:
$2,000, photo-engraved Plaque, and travel expenses to the CDC (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) The recipient gives a plenary lecture at the CDC evaluating a significant contribution to control systems science or engineering.
Funding:
Funded by the IEEE Control Systems Society.
Presentation:
At the Awards Ceremony of the CSS.
Basis for Judgement:
The technical merit of the distinguished contributions to control systems science or engineering. 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.
