IEEE Fellows Program

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. A brief citation is issued to new Fellows describing their contributions, limited to the total number selected in any one year to not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership. The full list of Solid-State Circuits Society Members who are IEEE Fellows are listed here. Complete information about the IEEE Fellows Program may be found here.

Recently SSCS formed the Fellow Search Committee (FSC) to increase the number of Fellow nominations of its members. The FSC can provide help in identifying nominators for society members during the summer, serve as mentors to explain the recent changes in the Fellow evaluation process to nominators starting in September, and provide feedback on nominations starting in October.  The chair of the SSCS Fellow Search Committee is Wanda Gass (wandakgass-at-gmail.com). To request help from FSC, please contact the chair of the committee.

FSC Members: Lucien Breems, Doug Garrity, Stefan Heinen, Howard Luong, Katsu Nakamura, Bich-Yen Nguyen, Shanthi Pavan, Zhihua Wang

All parts of the Nomination (form, references and endorsements) must be submitted by Feb 7. All Nominations go through a rigorous review process. First, the IEEE Society/Council’s Fellow Evaluating Committee (S/C FEC) indicated on the nomination form, will assess the nominee’s technical qualifications and contributions. The chair of the SSCS Fellow Evaluation Committee is Hideto Hidaka (hideto.hidaka.pz-at-renesas.com)

FEC members: Tzi-Dar Chiueh, Jan Craninckx, Thomas Cho, Michael Flynn, Kadaba Lakshmikumar, Philip Mok

Next, the IEEE Fellow Committee reviews the nominees and rates them numerically according to the following criteria:

  • Significant contributions as a Technology Innovator, Educator, Research Engineer/ Scientist, Technical Leader, or Standards Contributor
  • The ranking of the individual by the S/C FEC
  • Opinions of References and Endorsements
  • Service within the IEEE and/or other professional engineering organizations
  • Total years in the profession
