IEEE TCDE Awards

IEEE TCDE (Technical Committee of Data Engineering) is happy to announce the call for nominations for the three IEEE TCDE awards. This is the third year for this new set of highly prestigious Data Engineering Awards. The overall goal of these awards is to encourage innovative long term contributions to the field of Data Engineering. The awards are:

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

IEEE TCDE Early Career Award

This award is based on an individual's whole body of work in the first 5 years after the PhD. The award aims to promote current database researchers as they create their career. The award is given to an individual (if there is at least one qualified candidate) and consists of a plaque to the awardee. The recipient will receive the award at the annual IEEE ICDE Conference during the awards session.

Eligibility

The candidate should have completed all the requirements for the PhD no earlier than December 31, 2011. 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, 2017 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 CSEE (Computer Science, Engineering, and Education) Impact Award

This multi-focus award recognizes database researchers who made contributions beyond the data engineering research community to Computer Science, Engineering, or Education. The award may be given to an individual or a group of researchers (if there is at least one qualified candidate) and consists of a plaque per person. The recipient(s) will receive the award at the annual IEEE ICDE Conference during the awards session.

Eligibility

The candidate(s) can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee. The award is given in recognition of a researcher or a group of researchers from the data engineering community for contributions in research, practical innovation or exposition with impact to (a) the wider field of Computer Science, (b) engineering products, tools, and practices or (c) education.

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). The nomination should explicitly indicate the specific impact field the works target (Computer Science, Engineering, or Education). Only one award will be given each year (or none, if no successful nominations are presented). Three supporting letters should be submitted. The letters need to address the significance of the contributions cited in the nomination with emphasis on the impact field. At least one of the letter writers should be from the specific field (Computer Science, Engineering/Industry, or Education) where the contribution had an impact. Nominations must be received by January 31, 2017 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 and may be awarded to an individual (if there is at least one qualified candidate) and consists of a plaque. The recipient will receive the award at the annual IEEE ICDE Conference during the awards session.

Eligibility

The candidate can be anyone except the current officers of IEEE TCDE and members of the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee. The award is given in recognition of an individual for service contributions to ICDE, TCDE, and the data engineering community in general.

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, 2017 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 nominations should be sent to the IEEE TCDE Awards Committee Chair, Renee J. Miller (miller@cs.toronto.edu).
