Van Duzer Prize Award

The IEEE Council on Superconductivity sponsors the Van Duzer Prize, awarded to the best contributed paper published in IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity during each volume year. The award is restricted to regular submissions to the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity to encourage authors to prepare well written and comprehensive contributions which may have exceptional archival values and are likely to be cited frequently by other authors. Papers submitted for publication through scientific conference special issues are not eligible. The recipients are announced in the year following the volume year in which the paper appears.

IEEE Fellow

As it stands today, the IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership. Each new Fellow receives a beautifully matted and framed certificate with the name of the Fellow and a brief citation describing the accomplishment, a congratulatory letter from the incoming IEEE president and a gold sterling silver Fellow lapel pin with an antique finish. 

Please note: The list below includes "IEEE Fellows" elevated by the Council on Superconductivity. The Council acknowledges that there are additional members of our community that have been elevated by other organizational units of the IEEE.

IEEE Senior Member

Senior member is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply. IEEE members can self-nominate, or be nominated, for Senior Member grade. Prospective members who would like to apply directly for Senior Member grade must first join IEEE and then submit the Senior Member application form. An IEEE Member Number is required on the Senior Member application.

IEEE Life Member

IEEE "Life" status is an automatic process which is based on an individual's membership record. The member must be at least 65 years of age and a member of IEEE or one of its predecessor societies for such a period that the sum of his/her age and his/her years of membership equals or exceeds 100 years. (IEEE Bylaw I-102.2) Members who qualify each year will be notified by mail in the fourth quarter of the qualifying year. "Life" status will be effective on 1 January of the following year.
