The Control Engineering Practice Award is given to one individual or one team to be selected from those nominated for significant contribution to the advancement of control practice.
The award consists of a certificate and an honorarium. In the event that the winner is a team, each member of the team will receive a certificate and the honorarium will be divided equally among the team members.
The work on which the nomination is based must have been performed while the nominated individual or at least one member of the team was a resident of the USA.
