Call for Nominations for the Bionic Engineering Award

By:ISBE Secretariat      Time:2013-5-6
The International Society of Bionic Engineering (ISBE) offers International Bionic Engineering Award at each triennial conference to honour and encourage the society members for their prominent contributions and achievements in the field of bionic engineering.
The Award is divided into two categories:
1)      Bionic Engineering Outstanding Contribution Award:
Two winnners, each one will be awarded 30,000 RMB;
2)      Bionic Engineering Outstanding Youth Award:
Two winners aged under 40 years old, and each one will be awarded 10,000 RMB. 
Now nominations are invited for this Award, and there are three methods of nominating candidates:
1)      Self-recommendation;
2)      Recommended by another member;
3)      Recommended by a group of colleagues.
Self-recommendation needs to provide the individual resume including the main achievement. Recommended by another member or a group of colleagues need to give explanations for recommendation. At the initial stage, the nominees probably may not be the society members because our members come from different countries and not necessarily familiar with each other, but they should be the person who made contribution in the field of bionic engineering and become the members of ISBE at the enrollment stage.
The Award Committee has been established in the April following the guidelines of Award Measures, and the nominations will be assessed equally on the nominee’s merits and eligibility. The final result will be announced at the 4th International Conference of Bionic Engineering (ICBE2013) when the winners will be presented with the certificate and monetary award. It should be noted that the members of the Executive Board of ISBE are ineligible for the award.
Common ways of submitting nominations are e-mail ( or or post (1201 Administrative Building, Jilin University, 2699 Qianjin Street, Changchun 130012, P. R. China). The deadline for submission of nominations is June 10, 2013, unless otherwise indicated.
