New Award of the Magnetics Society: the Distinguished Service Award
At the last meeting of the Administrative Committee at the Intermag 2015 in Beijing the Magnetics Society has decided to establish a Distinguished Service Award.
This award will be given for outstanding service to the Magnetics Society characterized by sustained voluntary service work, which has been significantly beyond the average performance of a person in that function. A single award will be awarded annually if there is a suitable candidate.
The award consists of a cash award of US$ 2000 plus a travel allowance of US$ 500 for attending the award ceremony plus life membership in the IEEE Magnetics Society.
The nomination procedure is analog to that of the Achievement Award. Nominations should be sent to Burkard Hillebrands (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 31, 2015. The nomination form can be found here.
