The George E. Smith Award was established in 2002 to recognize the best paper appearing in a fast turn around archival publication of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, targeted to IEEE Electron Device Letters. 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.
