The IEEE Communications Society Leonard G. Abraham Prize

Prize
Plaque and honorarium up to $500 for each author (total awards not to exceed $1000).

Eligibility
Publication of an original paper published in the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications in the previous 3 calendar years; author need not be an IEEE member.

Basis for Judging
Quality, originality, utility, timeliness, clarity of presentation.

Nominee Solicitation
Nominations solicited by Journal Editor-in-Chief from the Editorial Board, guest Editors, and readership (through published notice).

Selection Process
Nominations screened and reduced to a short list by a committee of the Editorial Board and submitted to the Communications Society Awards Committee for final selection.

Presentation
