NOMINATIONS ARE ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

Nominate a Volunteer for a Service Award

Nominate a deserving volunteer for an IEEE Computer Society higher-level service award to show appreciation for their contributions.

Meritorious Service Certificates are given to recognize outstanding service to society programs and activities, and to the profession, as opposed to technical achievement. Service awards are open to all, and anyone can nominate using nomination forms available at http://computer.org/awards.

Nominations require one endorsement and are approved by the Awards Committee. Certificates are signed by the IEEE Computer Society President.Honor meritorious and significant service to any society-sponsored activity may qualify in whole or in part. Qualification is enhanced by the level and number of contributions, excellence, dedication, and tenure of service.

Outstanding Contribution Certificates are also available for achievements of major value and significance to the IEEE Computer Society. The achievement should be a specific, concisely characterized accomplishment, as opposed to a collection of different efforts. Examples could include the successful launching of major conference series, publications, standards, or model curricula. A group award may be given for a major contribution in which a number of volunteers each made significant contributions.

Distinguished Service Certificates are awarded for long and distinguished service to the IEEE Computer Society at a level of dedication and achievement rarely demonstrated. It often includes service in several capacities, and positions of significant Society responsibility, with contribution levels justifying multiple Meritorious Service Certificates or higher.
