Dear colleagues,

This is the annual call for submissions for SHOT's IEEE prize in
electrical history.

If you or someone you know has published a deserving article in 2008 dealing
with any aspect of the history of electricity, electronics,
telecommunications, or any other electrically-related field -- and
this should includes most work in the history of computing -- please
consider nominating it for the IEEE Life Members' Prize in Electrical
History. Paper authors are encouraged to nominate themselves by
submitting a copy of their article, and everyone is asked to submit
notice of anything that they have seen published in 2008 that they
feel is worthy of being considered for the Prize. The deadline for
submissions is April 15, 2009.

The official prize announcement appears below. For more information,
please contact me at rmacdou at uwo.ca.

Prize Committee Chair


The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Life
Members' Prize in Electrical History, supported by the IEEE Life
Members' Fund and administered by the Society for the History of
Technology (SHOT), 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.
The prize consists of a cash award of $500 and a certificate. To
nominate an article, please send a copy (paper or electronic) of the
article to each member of the prize committee. Deadline for the 2008
prize is April 15, 2009.
