Call for 2016 SSDM Award Nomination

The SSDM Award was established to recognize outstanding contributions to academic or industrial development in the field of solid state devices and materials.
Papers to be nominated for the 2016 SSDM Award should be among those that have been presented between the 1st SSD conference in 1969 and the 42nd SSDM conference in 2010.

The SSDM Award will ultimately be decided by the SSDM Organizing Committee after a recommendation is made by the SSDM Award Nomination Committee.

The recommendation will be in accordance with the following two criteria.

  • 1) Originality

    The award-winning selection must be original, and must have had significant theoretical or practical impact in the field of solid state devices and materials.

  • 2) Contribution

    The author(s) of the award-winning selection must have played or be playing a pioneering or leading role, with globally outstanding contributions in the technological field.

Candidate and Nominator Eligibility

  • - Candidates Eligible for the Award
