The Bernard S. Finn IEEE History Prize is awarded annually to the best paper in the history of electrotechnology—power, electronics, telecommunications, and computer science—published during the preceding year. Any article published in a learned periodical is eligible if it treats the art or engineering aspects of electrotechnology and its practitioners. The article must be written in English, although the journal or periodical in which it appears may be a foreign language publication.
To nominate an article, please send a copy of the paper to each member of the prize committee. For more information, please visit the posting webpage or contact Jan Korsten at [email protected].
