Nomination Process

Nomination of Prize Awardees and Honorary Members


Instructions for submission of nominations

Nominations for prizes and Honorary Membership are by invitation. Personal applications for an award are not considered. Each prize is awarded to an individual and not to an institution or an association. Candidates will not be considered for a prize unless nominated on an official form by three members of the ISS/SIC who are familiar with the candidate’s contribution. The completed form must be in the English language, typewritten, and accompanied by the candidate’s curriculum vitae and bibliography. The completed nomination forms must be received by the Secretary General of the ISS/SIC no later than December 31, the year before the incoming congress in order to assure processing by the Executive and Nominating Committee at their regular meetings. The nominations will be reviewed by the Executive Committee of the ISS/SIC who will make the final decisions. The decisions by the Executive Committee will not be appealable.

Completed Nomination Forms and Description of the Candidate’s Contribution shall be sent to:

Secretary-General ISS/SIC
