IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Technical Award

To recognize outstanding contribution to or leadership in advancing instrumentation design or measurement technique.

$2,000 ($4,000 total for shared awards), Plaque, and travel allowance of up to $1,000 ($2,000 total for shared awards) is granted on a need basis for the recipient(s) to attend the awards ceremony.
Funded by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
Awarded annually at the discretion of the I&M Society Awards Committee at the following year’s I2MTC awards ceremony.
Basis for Judgement:
Recognizes an individual or group of individuals for outstanding contributions or leadership in advancing instrumentation design or measurement technique. The nomination must clearly indicate the achievements that define the excellence of the candidate and must reference/provide relevant documentation that is in/or not in/ the public domain. At least 2, but no more than 4 endorsements must be provided by individuals with close knowledge of a candidate’s activities that led to the achievements cited.
Open to all, either individuals or groups. Must be a member of IEEE and the Instrumentation and Measurement Society at the time of nomination and presentation. Voting members of the Society Standing Awards Committee are not eligible. Nominees must exhibit actions that reflect positively on and enhance the reputation of the I&M Society.


Ruqiang Yan

For significant contributions to energy efficient sensing and advanced data analytics.

Tuan Guo

For outstanding contributions to the Advancement of Energy and Health monitoring technologies.

Julian Gardner

For outstanding contribution to the field of chemical sensing over a period of 25 years. Dr. Gardner is a pioneer in the measurement of gases and odors using electronic based instrumentation. He has designed and developed novel electronic nose instrumentation, which has been employed to measure complex smells from food production to disease detection.

Darine Haddad

For technical leadership in constructing the NIST watt balance and leading a measurement campaign to determine Planck’s constant to 34 parts in 1,000,000,000. In the record time of 5 years, Dr. Haddad assembled an apparatus that can realize the unit of mass in the redefined system of units.

Paolo Carbone

For outstanding contributions to the advancement of the state-of-the-art in the quantization of signals in digital instrumentation.

George Xiao

For outstanding contributions to the advancement and implementation of safety and security monitoring instrumentation and measurement technologies.

Robert X. Gao

For significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in electrical capacitance tomography instrument design.

Paolo Ferrari

For contributions to the analysis and experimental evaluation of clock synchronization in real-time applications for industry.

Dan Apetrei

For leadership in implementation of novel measurement solutions in power distribution systems.

Abdulmotaleb El Saddik

For outstanding contributions to multimedia computing.
