Nominate a Colleague for the Karlsson
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 12 August, 2009 – The 15 September nomination deadline is approaching for the Hans Karlsson Standards Award, which honors the work of past or present participants in IEEE Computer Society standards activities.
Established in 1992 in memory of Hans Karlsson, chairman and father of the IEEE 1301 family of standards, the Karlsson Award comes with a plaque and $2,000 honorarium. It is presented in recognition of outstanding skills and dedication to diplomacy, team facilitation and joint achievement, in the development or promotion of standards in the computer industry, where individual aspirations, corporate competition, and organizational rivalry could be counter to the benefit of society.
The Karlsson Award Selection Committee is chaired by David Schultz of the Computer Sciences Corp.
Past recipients include Katherine L. Morse, for her leadership in developing modeling and simulation standards and her collaboration in establishing the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization Standards Activity Committee as an IEEE standards sponsor. John L. (Jack) Cole received the award in 2006 for bringing together diverse interests with leadership, dedication, and vision in producing five storage system standards and forming the first information assurance standards committee.
Yervant Zorian received the Karlsson in 2005 to recognize his outstanding leadership, communications, and achievement with the IEEE Testability Method for Embedded Core-based ICs standard (IEEE Std. 1500tm-2005) through collaboration with major industry groups. David B. Gustavson’s insight, organization, and political astuteness in bringing the Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI) (IEEE 1596-1992) to fruition won him the award in 2004.
