Date & Time: Monday, January 22, 2024, 15:50 – 16:50
Organizer: Jenshan Lin
This IEEE Fellow Nomination Information Session at the upcoming IEEE Radio & Wireless Week (RWW) 2024 will offer an opportunity to learn about the IEEE Fellow nomination and elevation process as well as the statistics in the past. In addition to providing information and encouraging nominations, this session aims to provide last-minute help to nominators before the upcoming Fellow nomination deadline on 07 February 2024 (note the much earlier new deadline). IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation. The total number of Fellow recommendations in any one year must not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the IEEE voting membership on record as of 31 December of the year preceding (IEEE Bylaw I-305.9).
