ComSoc Awards Ceremonies honor the achievements of IEEE Communications Society members.
The Society’s Career & Service Awards pay tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made lasting impact on technology, society, the engineering profession, and humanity. Career Award recipients are recognized as being the most influential members in their chosen field and are revered for their resolve to discover, extend, or complement technological advancements in education, industry, research and service. Service Award recipients are honored for their distinguished and exemplary service to ComSoc over a sustained period of time.
Awards ceremonies also honor the achievements of authors whose articles appear in ComSoc publications. The Society’s major prize paper awards recognize writers of outstanding / original papers published in IEEE ComSoc journals and magazines. These papers essentially enlarge the field of communications engineering; for example, they may open new lines of research, envision bold approaches to communication, or formulate new problems to solve. Paper Award recipients discover, extend, or complement technological advancements in education, industry, research and service.
Each year, new recipients join ComSoc’s prestigious award honoree list through a selective nomination and approval process.
