DAC Awards

      The DAC committee has been sponsoring the DA award since 1988. A second award sponsored by the DAC Committee, namely the DAC Young Investigator Award, has been established in 2008.

 

 

ASME Design Automation Award

The Design Automation Award is given from time to time, but never more than once each year, to recognize sustained meritorious contribution to research in Design Automation. Nominations for this award can be made by any member of ASME to the Chair of the Design Automation Executive Committee.

The nomination package should include specific details of the nominee's contributions to the area of Design Automation and a critical explanation of why these contributions are significant enough to warrant the award. A curriculum vitae should also be included for the nominee, along with letters of recommendation from other researchers in the nominee's field.

Unsuccessful nomination packages will be held for consideration for two additional years. Providing supplemental documentation such as the updated curriculum vitae and nomination letter is strongly encouraged for such nominations submitted earlier.

The recipient is selected among the nominees by Design Automation Honors and Awards Technical Subcommittee appointed by the Chair of the Design Automation Executive Committee. The recipient will be given a monetary award and presented with a certificate at the award ceremony, which will be held at the ASME DETC/CIE Conference.

Read the current announcement for the DA Award.

Nomination materials must be submitted by 5pm EST, on April 30, 2014.

ASME DA Young Investigator Award

The Design Automation Young Investigator Award will be given from time to time, but never more than once each year, to recognize an outstanding young investigator who is making noteworthy contributions in the area of design automation, including research in design representation, design optimization, design evaluation, and/or design integration.

Nominations for this award can be made to the Chair of the Design Automation Executive Committee by any member of ASME. At the nomination deadline, the nominee must (1) have obtained his/her last degree within the past 7 years and be less than 40 years of age, (2) be a member of ASME, and (3) be in good standing with ASME. The nomination package should include a cover letter from the nominator, the nominee’s curriculum vitae, a statement (not to exceed 1000 words) about the nominee’s research contributions, and three letters of recommendation. Nominations are encouraged from both academic and non-academic career paths. Selection will be based on the nominee’s research contributions and accomplishments within the field of design automation as well as his/her impact on the field as attributed by prominent members in the field.

Unsuccessful nomination packages will be held for consideration for one additional year. Providing supplemental documentation such as the updated curriculum vitae and nomination letter is strongly encouraged for such nominations submitted earlier.

The Design Automation Honors and Awards Technical Subcommittee, appointed by the Chair of the Design Automation Executive Committee, selects the recipient among all nominees. Members of this Subcommittee are not eligible for the award. The recipient will be given a monetary award and presented with a certificate at the award ceremony, which will be held at the ASME DETC/CIE Conference.
