The nominee is not required to be a member of IEEE or NPSS but, where candidates have otherwise equal qualifications, preference shall be given to the candidate who is a member of IEEE.

Presentation:
By Chairperson of the IEEE/NPSS Standing Committee on Fusion Technology or his/her representative, on behalf of the NPSS, during the Symposium on Fusion Engineering.

Procedure:
The Fusion Technology standing committee solicits nominations for the Fusion Technology Award approximately 5 months prior to each Symposium on Fusion Engineering. The nomination package consists of a nomination letter describing the technical and/or leadership contributions on which the nomination is recommended and a resume from the candidate.
