Funded by the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.
The Vehicular Technology Society awards ceremony takes place at the fall edition of the flagship conference, the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference. This is the preferred venue for presenting this award, and the location and date will hence depend on the location and date of the conference. Alternatively, the award can be presented at any other Vehicular Technology Society events that include the spring edition of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference and the IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference.
The candidate’s contributions must relate to one of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society fields of interest. Nominees from any country are eligible. Previous award winners, currently elected Board members and appointed members of the award selection committee are ineligible.
