Nominations for the Outstanding Contribution Award should be submitted by February 15 of each year to the chair of the ACM SIGMOBILE Outstanding Contribution Award (OCA) Committee, Prof. David Kotz (email@example.com).
Each nomination should consist of the following items:
The award is usually given annually and will be presented at one of ACM SIGMOBILE's conferences during the year following selection of a winning nomination.
The Outstanding Contribution Awards is the highest honor the SIGMOBILE community bestows on an individual. It is a recognition of the lasting technical contribution made by this person and the influence he or she has had on our field. The Selection Committee for the award includes the past winners and the SIGMOBILE Chair.
