A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation
The A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Council on EDA and the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation. The Award honors a person or persons for an outstanding technical contribution within the scope of electronic design automation, as evidenced by a paper published at least ten years before the presentation of the award. The paper must have passed through a peer-review process before publication, be an archived conference or journal publication available from or published by either ACM or IEEE, and be a seminal paper where an original idea was first described. Follow-up papers and extended descriptions of the work may be cited in the nomination, but the award is given for the initial original contribution is based on the impact of the papers contribution. More details can be found at the Newton Award nomination page.
IEEE CEDA Early Career Award
The IEEE CEDA Early Career Award honors an individual who has made innovative and substantial technical contributions to the area of Electronic Design Automation in the early stages of his or her career. Full members of the IEEE at any level (regular, senior, or fellow grades) whose highest educational degree has been awarded no more than eight years prior to the date of the nomination deadline are eligible. The award shall be based on contributions to the field of EDA. Contribution will be measured based on technical merit and creativity in performing research, and will be assessed based on the published record of the individual and the references accompanying the nomination. The award is intended to be equally available to contributors from academic and industrial institutions. Some of the specific criteria used will be the current and potential impact of the individual's contributions, as well as contributions to the profession at large. The IEEE CEDA Early Career award will be presented at ICCAD. The deadline for the 2013 nominations is April 15, 2013. More details can be found in the Early Career Award nomination page.
Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic Design Automation
The Phil Kaufman Award is jointly sponsored by the EDA Consortium and the IEEE Council on EDA and honors an individual who has had demonstrable impact on the field of electronic design through contributions in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). The criteria include business impact, industry direction and promotion impact, technology and engineering impact, and educational and mentoring impact. More details can be found at the Phil Kaufman Award page.
IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design Donald O. Pederson Best Paper Award
The IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design Donald O. Pederson Best Paper Award is sponsored by the IEEE Council on EDA and recognizes the best paper published in the Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems publication. The award is based on general quality, originality, contributions, subject matter and timeliness. Anyone who is an author of a paper published in the Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems during the two calendar years preceding the award is eligible for nomination.
William J McCalla ICCAD Best Paper Award
The William J McCalla Best Paper Award is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Council on EDA, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, and the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation. The award honors the best paper or papers of the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Computer-Aided Design and is presented yearly at the conference event. The award is selected through a rigorous process including review by the ICCAD technical program committee, the ICCAD executive committee, and a specially selected best paper award committee.
