Award/Recognition Menu


The award will be given for the best oral or poster presentation by a young scientist or engineer during the Symposium. It will regularly recognize and reward high quality research in the ISE research field by a scientist or engineer in the early stages of her/his research career.


$1,000 and Certificate


The honorarium and cost of the production of the certificate will be covered by the Symposium registration fees until a private endowment is established. The symposium is held every three years.


The winner of the award will be announced during the Symposium closing ceremony, commencing with ISE12 in 2005.

Historical Background

ISE is normally held every three years and is sponsored by the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society.

Basis for Judging

The quality of the presentation, as well as that of the work on which it is based, will be considered by the selection committee. At any Symposium the award will be made only if the selection committee is satisfied that the best presentation (by a young scientist or engineer) is of a suitably high standard. Before the Symposium closing ceremony, any registered delegate may confidentially propose a winner of the award to the Symposium Chairperson. The proposal must be in writing and include a short justification. The Chairperson will pass on all such proposals to the selection committee. Self-nominations are not allowed.


For the purposes of the award, a young scientist or engineer is defined as a scientist or engineer who has not reached the age of 35 years by the ISE commencement date. There is no requirement for membership of learned/professional societies.
