See below details for the IEEE Life Members' Prize (best journal article) --
this includes history of computing in its scope. So, although you probably
didn't realize it, you're an "electrical historian." Encouragement of
submissions was mentioned at the most recent IEEE Annals board meeting as a
good strategy for boosting the visibility of our field. Looking at the names
of the judges also suggests a possibly sympathetic audience for our work.
You can nominate yourself, or someone else.

I was wondering if you would distribute the following announcement 
regarding the IEEE Life Members' Prize to members of your SIG.
Thanks in advance,

Dear colleagues,

If you or someone you know has published an article in 2009 dealing with 
any aspect of the history of electricity, electronics, telecommunications, 
or any other electrically-related field-and this entails history of 
technology in its broadest sense-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 2009 
that they feel is worthy of being considered for the Prize. The deadline 
for submissions is April 15, 2010.

The official prize announcement appears below. For more information, please 
contact Andrew Butrica, Prize Committee Chair, at abutrica at earthlink.net, 
or W. Bernard Carlson, SHOT Secretary at shot at virginia.edu.

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 2009 prize is April 15, 2010.
