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. In order to be proposed for an IEEE Special Citation in Electrical Engineering and Computing, a museum, archive, or other educational or cultural institution must have been open to the public for twenty-five years or more.
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: SPECIAL CITATION IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTING
Here is an example of a citation plaque text awarded by the IEEE:
SPECIAL CITATION IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTING

The Computer History Museum's mission is to preserve and present for posterity the artifacts and stories of the Information Age. The museum houses the world's largest collection of computers and related software, documents, and visual media.
