Recognition/Award Menu

Description

To recognize the achievements of a young researcher in the area of ultrasonics and its applications. The award is specific to those researchers in the early stages of their career.

Prize

The following items will be given to the awardee: Plaque, Certificate, $1,000 USD honorarium. This award is intended for a single recipient each year. However, in unusual circumstances if two recipients are selected, each recipient will receive a plaque and certificate, and the awardees will evenly share the honorarium.

Funding

Funded by the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society.

Presentation

Award will be presented annually at the IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium, unless extenuating circumstances prevent an awardee for attending to accept the award. In such an event, an alternate UFFC Society event will be selected that is mutually agreeable to the awardee and the Society.

Historical Background

Established in 2013

Basis for Judging

Nominations will be considered based their contributions to the field of ultrasonics, and their publication record. The selection of the recipient for this award will be made by vote of the Ultrasonics Committee during its first annual meeting. The decision of the committee is final. If, in the opinion of the Committee, no suitable nominee exists, no award will be given.

Eligibility

Awardees are required to be individuals who meet the following criteria: IEEE member, UFFC Society member, 1 to 10 years of research after obtaining the highest degree (Bachelor; Master; PhD), Remarkable contributions to the field/publication record Members of the UFFC Society Ultrasonics Committee are ineligible for consideration for this award during their term of service on this committee
