Each year, the IEEE Computer Society presents computer scientists and engineers, nominated by peers, with awards for their achievements in research and contributions to the computing community. Awardees are nominated for their outstanding discoveries and contributions.
Students are eligible for annual scholarships, awards, and honors for their achievements within computer science. Rewards are given to those who are active leaders within their student chapters or have displayed academic excellence within the computing discipline. Additionally, all IEEE student members, including undergraduates and graduates, are eligible to participate in student paper contests.
Board of Governors
The IEEE Computer Society Awards Committee is responsible for soliciting nominees, reviewing candidates, and making recommendations to the Board of Governors for final approval of all Major Award recipients.
Each award subcommittee evaluates every nomination submitted and analyzes each nominee’s lifetime achievements and impact on the computing community.
