IEEE Communications Society & Information Theory Society Joint Paper Award

Prize
A plaque and an honorarium up to US $500 for each author (total cost not exceeding US $1,000 for each paper).

Eligibility
For outstanding papers published in any publication of the Communications Society or the Information Theory Society within the previous three calendar years. The authors do not have to be a member of IEEE. Presented annually.

Basis for Judging
Quality, originality, utility, timeliness, and presentation. The paper should cover the interests and achieve the values of both the Communications Society and the Information Theory Society.

Sponsorship
Jointly sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and Information Theory Society (IT).

Funding
Evenly funded by the two sponsoring societies.

Selection Process

  1. Each year a joint papers evaluation subcommittee of six members is formed with three from each of the Awards committees of the two societies. ComSoc's members are appointed by the Chair of the ComSoc Awards Committee.

  2. This subcommittee considers ranked nominations from publications boards in both societies and selects 1 or 2 papers as the award recipients. No paper already selected for a ComSoc paper award will be eligible. The processes/timelines will be the same as all other paper awards.

Presentation
Annually at any event sponsored by either of the two sponsoring societies selected by the recipient(s)

(Approved 1999; first presented 2002)
