The IEEE Photonics Society Chapter Awards were established to honor the achievements and educational activities conducted by our Chapters around the world. Each year the IEEE Photonics Society honors selected chapters, in good standing, with the following chapter awards:
- Chapter of the Year
- Most Improved Chapter
- Most Innovative Chapter
- Senior Member Initiative Award
- Largest Member Increase Award
Starting in 2016 and moving forward, the IEEE Photonics Chapter Award submission and selection process will be automated online and take place early in the calendar year. Each chapter’s reporting details should reflect the projects and accomplishments from the full prior calendar year. For instance, 2020 chairs will report on their chapter’s 2019 results. The online reporting procedures will be emailed directly to the current chapter chairs, when avialable.
Chapter Award funds will now be issued by May/June and will continue to be recognized at the IEEE Photonics Conference in October.
