CEDAR Distinguished Lecturer Nomination Criteria
The CEDAR Distinguished Lecture was instituted in 2009 to recognize individuals within the CEDAR community that have made sustained professional contributions to CEDAR. This distinguished award refers to a long-term, sustained body of work over a period greater than 10 years, that has helped shape the CEDAR program through research and service. The recipient of the award presents an invited plenary lecture at the annual CEDAR workshop in June on a topic of their choice.
The CEDAR Distinguished Lecture is open to non-U.S. citizens as well as U.S. citizens, provided a strong connection to the CEDAR community can be demonstrated. The nomination should be based on significant research and service to the CEDAR community sustained over a period of at least ten years prior to the June CEDAR workshop.
A nomination consists of two items:
- Name of nominee; and
- A maximum 2-page statement detailing the sustained research and service to the CEDAR community justifying the nomination.
Nominations for the 2017 CEDAR Distinguished Lecture should be emailed to Jonathan Makela and Scott England. Nominations will be considered by the full CEDAR Science Steering Committee and are due 28 February 2017.
