IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications

Prize
Plaque, honorarium of up to US$1000, travel reimbursement of up to US$3000.

Description
The IEEE Guglielmo Marconi Best Paper Award is an annual award, sponsored by Qualcomm Inc., for an original paper in the field of Wireless Communications published in the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. NOTE:  IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications is co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Signal Processing Society.

Eligibility
Author of an original paper in the field of Wireless Communications, published in the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications in the previous 3 calendar years, are eligible for the Award. There are no restrictions as to IEEE membership, nationality, race, creed, age or gender.

Basis for Judging
Originality, utility, timeliness, and clarity of presentation.

Nominee Solicitation
Nominations solicited by the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications from the Editorial Board, guest Editors, and readership (through published notice).

Selection Process
Annually solicitations are sought from 1 January through 15 February; a short list is generated by 1 March; selection by an award committee (consisting of 3 members of the ComSoc Awards Committee and 1 from the Signal Processing Society) is completed by 10 April; the Chair of the Communications Society Awards Committee notifies recipients no later than 20 April.

Administration
Sponsored by Qualcomm Inc., in addition to the $1000 honorarium, a travel reimbursement of up to US$3000 is provided for travel and living to enable recipients to attend the Awards Luncheon.

Term of Commitment:
It is expected that Qualcomm Incorporated will fund the presentation of the IEEE Guglielmo Marconi Paper Prize Award in Wireless Communications for the years 2003 through 2012.  In the event that Qualcomm Incorporated determines that it no longer wishes to sponsor the IEEE Guglielmo Marconi Paper Prize Award in Wireless Communications beyond the year 2012,Qualcomm Incorporated will provide, in writing, a minimum of eighteen months advance notice of withdrawal of sponsorship.  In order to prevent any further publicity regarding this Award, notification must be given no later than 15 June of any year during the sponsorship.  In this case, the sponsorship would end on 31 December of the year following the notice of withdrawal.

Presentation
Annually presented by the IEEE Communications Society Awards Committee Chair, in the name of the IEEE Communications Society, the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and the external sponsor of the award, at the International Conference on Communications.
