Nomination Process

This Award recognizes a living individual for a career of meritorious achievements and outstanding technical contributions in the field of applied superconductor material technology, over a period of time (nominally more than twenty years) based on novel and innovative concepts and theories proposed by the individual, the authorship or co-authorship of many publications of major significance to the field of applied superconductor materials technology, and the impact that the candidate’s contributions have had on the development and maturing of applied superconductivity. This Award is named for Dr. James Wong who received the IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Applied Superconductivity in 2011 for his pioneering work in producing commercial grade superconductor cables and conductors. In 1962, Dr. Wong founded Supercon, Inc. which has produced a variety of niobium-titanium and niobium-tin superconducting wires, cables, and conductors for many commercial and research applications, and has supplied production quantities of high-quality superconducting wire for a longer time than any other company in the world.

The nomination can be made by anyone who is familiar with the individual’s work.

Before you complete the online form, you should have the following information and supporting documents to complete the nomination:

  • Name, affiliation, and contact information of the nominating individual
  • A curriculum vitae of the Nominee (three pages maximum) detailing the complete contact information (full name, affiliation, e-mail address and telephone number(s)), nominee’s principal educational and employment history, major awards received, and the number of publications and presentations made at major scientific and technological conferences, especially those dealing with applied superconductivity
  • Proposed citation (which IEEE CSC may adjust)
  • Three to six professional references and their letters of support for the nomination in PDF format
  • Up to 8 Most Significant Papers, Patents, Products, and/or Programs in PDF format
Additionally, you must provide a description of how the nominee’s achievements and accomplishments have contributed in a significant fashion to the maturing and advancement of the field of applied superconductivity, which justifies the Nominee’s consideration for the indicated IEEE CSC Award. Describe the economic, technical, and professional impact of the Nominee’s contributions to science and technology of applied superconductivity (600-word maximum).
