More Information and Nominations
The IEEE W.R.G. Baker Award was established in 1956 and is presented by the IEEE Board of Directors for the most outstanding paper reporting original work published in any IEEE archival publications (such as Transactions, Journals and Letters), Magazines, or Proceedings. The paper must have been published during a three to five year window prior to the presentation year of the award on the fundamentals of electrical engineering, electronics, computing, and related arts and sciences as represented by IEEE. No more than one award may be given in any year.
The award was originally established through a donation of the Institute of Radio Engineers, one of the predecessor organizations of IEEE, by Dr. Walter R. G. Baker (1892-1960), who was a pioneer in the field of radio and television broadcast engineering.
This award is administered through the IEEE Prize Papers/Scholarship Awards Committee of the IEEE Awards Board.
