The IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) presents several awards annually for technical achievements in the areas of interest to the Society, as well as awards for service to the Society. An individual need not be a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and/or the CSS to be eligible to receive technical achievement awards of the CSS. Selection of the winner for each of those technical achievement awards is made by a CSS committee whose members have not been involved in the nominations for that award.
The CSS also supports awards given by the IEEE, which include the IEEE Control Systems Award and the CSS IEEE Fellows Award. Information can be found in Other IEEE Awards. The CSS also supports awards given by the American Automatic Control Council (AACC) and the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) in its areas of interest. Links to further information about these non-CSS awards are listed in the side-bar. General information about CSS awards can be obtained from the Chair of the CSS Awards Committee. The CSS Awards program operates within the bylaws of the IEEE. Additional information about IEEE procedures, e.g. how to propose and get approval of a new CSS Award, can be found in the IEEE Awards and Recognitions Manual - available in pdf format from the IEEE website.
