The Paul Rappaport Award was established in 1984 to recognize the best paper appearing in a fast turn around archival publication of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, targeted to IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. It is presented annually and the recipient(s) is awarded a certificate and a check for $2,500, presented at the EDS Board of Governors Meeting in conjunction with the International Electron Devices Meeting.



Congratulations to the 2015 EDS Paul Rappaport Award winners:

Stefano Ambrogio, Simone Balatti, Vincent McCaffrey, Daniel C. Wang & Daniele Ielmini for their paper entitled Noise-Induced Resistance Broadening in Resistive Switching Memory€”Part I: Intrinsic Cell Behavior / Part II: Array Statistics

*Selected by EDS BoG as first Paul Rappaport Award winner. IEEE did not approve the award until 1983.

Although the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) is pleased to invite all individuals and groups in the OFAC embargoed countries to submit nominations for IEEE EDS Awards, the IEEE EDS cannot provide any award monies to members from such countries at this time.
