IMAPS has many deserving members who have given their time, energy, and expertise to ensure our industry has a robust future.  Every year IMAPS members are asked to point out those Society’s members who have done such notable work that they deserve the distinction of the Society’s awards to publicly acknowledge their accomplishments.   The awards presentation will be on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, during a special award ceremony.

You can make sure these deserving members are recognized by nominating them for one of our prestigious awards!  The 2018 Awards Nominating Committee is actively seeking nominations for these awards. All nominations will be considered for review for a 3-year period or until the nominee wins said award, whichever comes first.  Nominees for each award are evaluated by their respective Selection Committee. The Award Committees are chaired by the First Past President.

The eight awards presented annually are: the Daniel D. Hughes, Jr. Memorial Award; the William D. Ashman - John A. Wagnon Technical Achievement Award (the Ashman-Wagnon award has changed starting in 2018); the Fellow of the Society Award; the Corporate Recognition Award; the Sidney J. Stein International Award; the Outstanding Educator Award; the Steve Adamson Student Recognition Award; and the Lifetime Achievement Award (also an individual award, but will be awarded only occasionally when a deserving individual is identified and nominated).

 

Criteria for each award are as follows:

The Daniel C. Hughes, Jr. Memorial Award is the highest, most prestigious annual technical honor, and is awarded to the individual who has the greatest combination of technical achievements related to microelectronics, combined with outstanding contributions supporting the microelectronics industry, academic achievement, or support and service to IMAPS. One must be an IMAPS member in good standing for a minimum of five years to qualify for this Award. Recipients of this award automatically become Life Members and Fellows of the Society. Recipients of the Hughes Award are no longer eligible for the Ashman-Wagnon Award.

The William D. Ashman - John A. Wagnon Technical Achievement Award is given to a member of the society who has made outstanding technical contributions to the microelectronics packaging industry, while participating and demonstrating support of activities to enhance the profession as a member. The award may be given for a specific accomplishment, a number of accomplishments over a period of years, or for overall contributions to the microelectronics industry. Recipients of this award automatically become Life Members and Fellows of the Society.

The Fellow of the Society Award honors and recognizes those who have made significant and continuing contributions to IMAPS over the years at any level – local or national. A nominee must have been an IMAPS member for five (5) consecutive years. Examples of the nomination criteria usually considered for this award are: (1) service as an officer of a local chapter or in a national office; (2) service as a member of a local, regional, or national committee or task force; and/or (3) presentation of papers or conducting of short courses at local, regional, or national symposia. Recipients of this award automatically become Life Members of the Society.

The Corporate Recognition Award honors and recognizes a corporation (or the appropriate division or department of a corporation) that in the opinion of the Corporate Recognition Award Selection Committee has made significant technical contributions to the microelectronics industry, while demonstrating support of IMAPS through participation in such activities as Organizational and Regular Memberships, promoting member participation in IMAPS-sponsored activities, sponsorships, Educational Foundation contributions, and by exhibiting at the Annual Symposium.

The Sidney J. Stein International Award recognizes an individual who has provided significant international technical and/or leadership contributions to the microelectronics packaging industry, while participating and demonstrating support of IMAPS International activities to enhance the electronics packaging profession. A minimum of 5 years service with an International IMAPS chapter is a pre-requisite.

The IMAPS Outstanding Educator Award recognizes an individual who has provided significant contributions to education for the electronics packaging industry and/or to the advancement of IMAPS Student Chapters. Note that this does not have to be restricted exclusively to academic education.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a member of the Society who has made exceptional, visible, and sustained impact on the microelectronics packaging industry in technology, business or both. Because this award recognizes long term and exceptional impact on the greater microelectronics industry, candidates may be nominated only by senior members, life members, or previous recipients of either the Fellow or Technical Achievement awards. Recipients of this award automatically become Life Members and Fellows of the Society. Recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award are no longer eligible for any other awards, except "President's Awards" which are special awards determined by the sitting IMAPS President with support of the Executive Council.

The IMAPS Foundation’s Steve Adamson Student Recognition Award honors an active student member’s participation in IMAPS events, chapters, and programs. Significant technical research and/or service contributions to IMAPS and the microelectronics industry will be considered during the judge’s review. Nominees must be current IMAPS student members at an undergraduate or graduate level taking courses or in an approved internship in either engineering or natural sciences. Students must attend a four-year college or university.

Nominations and supporting materials must be received by JUNE 29, 2018. Award nominations must be submitted online. Contact Shelby Moirano, Membership Adminstrator, at 919-293-5000 or smoirano@imaps.org if you have problems or questions.

There are few things we each value more than the recognition of our peers. This is your chance to recognize a deserving member with the prestige of an award – and only you, the membership, can do that. You have the keys to a vital part of our professional network – and your actions in recognizing other members’ accomplishments are key to making IMAPS much more valuable to us all!
