IEEE TCDE Awards

The IEEE TCDE (Technical Committee of Data Engineering) has established the following four awards. The goal of these highly prestigious awards is to encourage innovative long term contributions to the field of data engineering. These awards are managed by the TCDE Awards Committee.

Past award recipients (2014-present) can be found here.

IEEE TCDE Rising Star Award

This award is based on an individual's whole body of work in the first five years after the PhD. The award aims to promote current database researchers as they create their career.

Eligibility

The candidate should have completed all the requirements for the PhD no earlier than December 31, 2012. The candidate can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee.

Nomination Process

Anyone in the field can nominate one person (self-nominations are excluded). Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words) and a detailed statement to justify the nomination (500 words or less). Three supporting letters should be submitted. The letters need to address the significance of the contributions cited in the nomination. Nominations must be received by January 31, 2019 to be considered for this year's award. Please include a detailed CV for nominee in the nomination. Nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted or updated in subsequent years as long as the eligibility conditions for the award still hold. The Awards Committee will evaluate all nominations and decide on zero or more winners.


IEEE TCDE Impact Award

This award recognizes database researchers whose research contributed to expanding the data engineering field in one of the following ways.

  • Interdisciplinary. Impact beyond the data engineering field.
  • Practice. Impact beyond research to industrial practice.
  • Expansion. Impact resulting in expansion of the data engineering field itself.

Eligibility

The candidate(s) can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee.

Nomination Process

Anyone in the field can put forward a nomination (self-nominations are excluded). Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words) and a detailed statement to justify the nomination (500 words or less). The nomination should explicitly indicate the specific nature of the impact (expanding data engineering through interdisciplinary work, though impact on practice, or by expanding the data engineering field itself). Three supporting letters should be submitted. The letters need to address the significance of the contributions cited in the nomination. Recipients of other major database awards are eligible if the TCDE nomination is for different contributions. The nomination and letters should describe the difference and the impact of the new contributions, emphasizing how they expand the data engineering field. Nominations must be received by January 31, 2019 to be considered for this year's award. Please include a detailed CV for the nominee in the nomination. Nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted or updated in subsequent years. The Awards Committee will evaluate all nominations and decide on zero or more winners.


IEEE TCDE Education Award

This award recognizes database researchers who have had impact on data engineering education, including impact on the next generation of data engineering practitioners and researchers.

Eligibility

The candidate(s) can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee.

Nomination Process

Anyone in the field can put forward a nomination (self-nominations are excluded). Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words) and a detailed statement to justify the nomination (500 words or less). Three supporting letters should be submitted. The letters need to address the significance of the contributions to education cited in the nomination. Nominations must be received by January 31, 2019 to be considered for this year's award. Please include a detailed CV for nominee in the nomination. Nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted or updated in subsequent years. The Awards Committee will evaluate all nominations and decide on zero or more winners.

IEEE TCDE Service Award

This award recognizes an individual who has contributed significantly to ICDE, TCDE, and the data engineering community in general.

Eligibility

The candidate can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee.

Nomination Process

Anyone in the field can put forward a nomination (self-nominations are excluded). Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words) and a detailed statement to justify the nomination (500 words or less). Three supporting letters should be submitted. The letters need to address the significance of the service contributions cited in the nomination. Nominations must be received by January 31, 2019 to be considered for this year's award. Please include a detailed CV for nominee in the nomination. Nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted or updated in subsequent years. The Awards Committee will evaluate all nominations and decide on zero or more winners.

All Awards

All nominations should be sent to the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee Chair, Renee J. Miller (miller@cs.toronto.edu).
