Distinguished Member Award

To recognize significant technical contributions or outstanding long-term service to the IEEE Control Systems Society.

Prize:
Galvanic (photo engraved) plaque, conference registration and a CSS pin for each recipient.
Funding:
Funded by the IEEE Control Systems Society.
Presentation:
At the Awards Ceremony of the CSS.
Basis for Judgement:
The technical merit of the significant technical contributions and outstanding long-term service. 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:
Must have been a member of the CSS for at least five (5) years. Must be an IEEE CSS member at the time of nomination. Current members of the CSS Executive Committee are not eligible for this award.
