Industrial Innovation Award

The Industrial Innovation Award shall recognize an individual or team at any level who were industry employees whose technical contributions have resulted in significant advances using signal processing technologies within the scope of the Society. Selection will be based on major industrial accomplishments, standards, deployment of important processes or products, etc, that are of substantial benefit to the public, which use signal processing technologies and are visible beyond the company or institution where the contribution was made. The award shall be open to individuals at any level who were industry employees who played a significant role in the technical contribution at the time of the accomplishments being recognized. The prize shall be $1500 per awardee (up to a maximum of $4500 per award) and a plaque and certificate. In the event that there are more than three awardees, the maximum prize shall be divided equally among all awardees and each shall receive a plaque and certificate. Candidate(s) need not be an IEEE SPS member. It is preferred that recipients of the IEEE SPS Industrial Innovation Award be members of IEEE. However, the IEEE Board of Governors may approve the presentation to a non-member upon the recommendation of the IEEE SPS Awards Board. Presentation of the award shall be made at either the Society's Awards Ceremonies, normally held during ICASSP in the Spring or at ICIP in the Fall following selection of the winner. The award will not be conferred in any given year for which there are no suitable candidates identified. There shall be an open call for nominations reaching all Society members, as well as, specific boards/committees of the Society, which are the technical committees, editorial boards, and the major boards of the Society. Nominations may arise from any individual or committee/board, but a board or committee cannot nominate one of its own members for the award. However, a member of a board or committee can be nominated by another board or committee. Current officers and members of the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors and Awards Board are ineligible. Self-nominations are not accepted or considered. Members of the Awards Board and Board of Governors are not permitted to submit nominations. However, non-voting Board of Governors members are permitted to submit nominations. Previous recipients of the Industrial Innovation Award are ineligible. Nominations should be submitted directly to the Society's Awards Board, who is responsible for vetting all the nominations and ensuring that there are no more than three nominations per award. The Awards Board will manage the balloting by the Board of Governors.

Nominations must be received by the Awards Board Chair as follows:

  • Nominations due by: 1 September
