Notice from Fellow Nominations Committee
A substantial change has been made to the Fellow nomination process.
Nominators are asked to fill in IEEE online nomination form in its homepage with such required data as candidate name, his or her achievements as well as his or her contribution to the IEEE and other academic societies. Filling in the names and email addresses of 5 (up to 8) referees to whom the nominator will ask for reference, the IEEE system will automatically send referees necessary reference form. The same process is adopted regarding the endorsement. The endorsement is optional, and up to 3 endorsers can be named for a candidate.
On receiving the form, referees and endorsers can fill in required data and opinion online and send the form to IEEE by simply pressing the "send" button on the screen.
Traditional paper-based nomination/reference/endorsement process is also available. However, this online process is recommended as the nominator can verify and confirm if all the documents are duly sent to IEEE Fellow Committee.
Due to the change in nomination process, the application and approval procedure for getting Section endorsement will change too. The details will be notified in coming September.
