Three IEEE awards are presented annually at the IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium. The Rayleigh Award has been given annually for the past 13 years. Two new awards have been established in 2014: the IEEE Ultrasonics Young Investigator Award and the IEEE Carl Hellmuth Hertz Ultrasonics Achievement Award.
The IEEE Rayleigh Award represents the highest honor for achievement within the UFFC Society in the field of Ultrasonics. The achievement may be in technical innovations, research, education, publications and related professional endeavors. Typically, the recipient will have demonstrated these accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Selection will be made by an Awards Committee consisting of the Rayleigh Award Chair, previous winners of the award, and the Technical Program Vice-Chairs in the spring of each year.
The IEEE Ultrasonics Young Investigator Award recognizes the achievements of a young researcher in the area of ultrasonics and its applications. The award is specific to those researchers in the early stages of their career.
The IEEE Carl Hellmuth Hertz Ultrasonics Achievement award is intended for primary investigators that have contributed to the field of ultrasonics. The award candidate has an excellent track record in terms of scholarly publications, technical reports and/or inventions/patents. The award is intended to recognize the investigators for their outstanding mid-career achievements and for promoting the field of Ultrasonics. This award was named for Carl Hellmuth Hertz to honor his pivotal role as both a researcher and as an advisor to others working in the field of medical diagnostic ultrasound imaging.
