Call for Nominations: Bionic Engineering Award
The International Society of Bionic Engineering (ISBE) offers International Bionic Engineering Award at each triennial conference to honour and encourage the society members for their prominent contributions and achievements in the field of bionic engineering.
The Award is divided into two categories:
1) Bionic Engineering Outstanding Contribution Award:
Two winnners, each one will be awarded 30,000 RMB;
2) Bionic Engineering Outstanding Youth Award:
Two winners aged under 40 years old, and each one will be awarded 10,000 RMB.
Now nominations are invited for this Award, and there are three methods of nominating candidates:
2) Recommended by another member;
3) Recommended by a group of colleagues.
Self-recommendation needs to provide the individual resume including the main achievement. Recommended by another member or a group of colleagues need to give explanations for recommendation. At the initial stage, the nominees probably may not be the society members because our members come from different countries and not necessarily familiar with each other, but they should be the person who made contribution in the field of bionic engineering and become the members of ISBE at the enrollment stage.
The Award Committee has been established in the April following the guidelines of Award Measures, and the nominations will be assessed equally on the nominee’s merits and eligibility. The final result will be announced at the 4th International Conference of Bionic Engineering (ICBE2013) when the winners will be presented with the certificate and monetary award. It should be noted that the members of the Executive Board of ISBE are ineligible for the award.
Common ways of submitting nominations are e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or post (1201 Administrative Building, Jilin University, 2699 Qianjin Street, Changchun 130012, P. R. China). The deadline for submission of nominations is June 10, 2013, unless otherwise indicated.
Biomedical Engineering Society Diversity Award
The BMES Diversity Award honors an individual, project, organization, or institution for outstanding contributions to improving gender and racial diversity in biomedical engineering. The award is given for a broad range of activities, including research, education, and service that improves diversity in biomedical engineering industry and/or academia. The award seeks to recognize lifetime achievements as well as innovative and/or high impact activities.
The awardee or a representative of the project, organization, or institution will deliver a plenary lecture at the BMES Annual Meeting and publish the text of the lecture in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering. An important purpose of the lecture is to offer a vision of the challenges and opportunities to achieving greater diversity in biomedical engineering.
A nomination letter is required, (PDF Format submission will be accepted), which should address the following:
- What are the objectives of the nominee’s work?
- Provide examples of how the work conforms to and supports the goals of increasing diversity in biomedical engineering.
- Provide a detailed description of the nominee’s work.
- Describe the community served by the work including background/history and evolution if appropriate.
- What has been the impact of the work?
- What are the nominee’s plans to continue the work?
The nomination letter must be from a BMES member in good standing; however, nominees need not be BMES members. Self-nominations from BMES members are strongly encouraged.
