Special Citations Guidelines
IEEE Milestones Special Citation Program
The IEEE Special Citation in Electrical Engineering and Computing works within the IEEE Milestones Program, and is administered similarly. The proposal process is the same. When proposing a special citation, please include the words “Special Citation” in the title of your proposal, e.g. “Museum of History of Electronics, Special Citation.” Please use a comma rather than a hyphen, colon, or semicolon in the title because the special characters affect the wiki code.
The plaque will read: CITATION IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTING
Here is an example of a citation plaque text awarded by the IEEE:
CITATION IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTING
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), Electrical Pioneer
On the 150th anniversary of his birth, IEEE is pleased to recognize the seminal work of Nikola Tesla in the field of electrical engineering. Among his many accomplishments, those that stand out are his innovative contributions to the applications of polyphase current to electric power systems, his pioneering work with electromagnetic waves, and his experiments with very high voltages. The Tesla Museum in Beograd is to be commended for its successful efforts to preserve artifacts and documents related to Tesla and to make them accessible to scholars throughout the world.
