IES Best Conference Paper Award

Established: in 2005
 To recognize the best paper in the Industrial Electronics Society's major conference proceedings.  

Administration: Administered by The Industrial Electronics Society Awards and Honors Committee (IES A&H Committee). 
Eligibility: Author(s) of papers in the Industrial Electronics Society's major conference proceedings during the year specified for the award. Must be a member of the IEEE. 
Prize: Certificate, US$2,000 and certificate, and travel expense reimbursement for the award ceremony (limited to $3,000). In the case of multiple authors, the prize is to be divided among the awardees. 
Funding: Funded by IEEE Industrial Electronics Society. 
Basis for Judging: The Best Conference Paper will be selected based upon its originality and its contribution to the field of industrial electronics. The award is given only when suitable candidates are identified: it is not necessarily awarded yearly.
Nominee Solicitation: The IES A&H Committee and IES VP Conferences request nominations from General Chairs/Co-Chairs and/or Technical Program Chairs of the Society’s major conferences.
Presentation: At the Society's annual conference.

To nominate someone, please use the following documents.
