Awards

The Consumer Electronics Society has a number of awards under various categories and this page details the awards we present.

 


The Ibuka Technical Field Award


The IEEE Masaru Ibuka Consumer Electronics Award was established by the IEEE Board of Directors in 1987 to recognize outstanding contributions in the field of consumer electronics technology. It may be presented annually to an individual or team of up to three. It must be noted that the Ibuka award is an IEEE Field Award, not a Society Award.

The Early Career Award


The award will be distributed annually to recognize an individual who has made a substantial contribution in the field of Consumer Electronics in the early stages of his or her career, and to promote and support Early Career Development within the Consumer Electronics profession. It comprises a stipend of US$1,000 and a certificate, to be presented at a CE Society conference of the winner’s choice.

The award shall be based on contributions to the field of Consumer Electronics, as assessed from the nomination and reference. It is equally open to contributors from all backgrounds, and not judged on purely academic merit. Factors considered include: demonstration of field leadership or team engagement in a specific area; technical or inventive merit; project or organizational initiative; positive impact on the public profile of the profession.

The candidate must be a full member of the IEEE (regular, senior or fellow) and the CE Society at the time of nomination. His or her first educational degree must have been awarded no more than ten years prior to the date of the nomination deadline. Previous award winners are ineligible; likewise nominees who have already received credit elsewhere for the same work.

The nomination can be made by any member of both IEEE and CE Society who is well acquainted with the candidate’s work. The nominator will be required to submit a package containing the following information:

• Name, affiliation, and contact information of nominating individual.
• One-page biographical sketch of the candidate, including education and employment history.
• Nominating letter summarizing the nominee’s contributions, accomplishments and impact on the profession or economy, as appropriate (max. 2 pages).
• Professional reference/endorsement by a second IEEE CE Society Member, also familiar with the candidate’s work.
