The Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW) Organizing Committee requests nominations for the 2020 Persistent Impact Prize.  The prize is awarded annually to a paper published at least five years prior that has had an exceptional impact on the fields of study related to non-volatile memories. The award committee interprets both “impact” and “non-volatile memories” broadly. To be eligible, work must have appeared in major, peer-reviewed, archival conference or journal (i.e., appeared in a published proceedings or journal).  For conference papers, the date of the conference will be used to determine eligibility.  For journals, we will use the publication date.  There is no requirement for the work to have been presented at the NVMW. The award includes a cash prize.

Anyone may nominate any paper (including self-nominations). Nominations must include a one-page nominating statement that includes:

  1. The name of the nominated paper.
  2. A citation of the nominated paper (i.e., a bibliography entry).
  3. A summary of the paper’s contributions and its impact since publication.  If the paper has had an impact beyond conventional metrics (e.g., citation count), be sure to highlight it.
  4. A suggested “citation statement” (e.g., “This paper laid the foundation of widget design theory and paved the way for…”) for the award.
  5. The nominating statement should not include the nominator’s name.

Awarding of the prize is contingent upon one of the authors attending the NVMW 2020 to accept it.

Nominations are due December 1st, 2019 at midnight AoE.

Self-nominations are allowed.
