Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
The IEEE Fellows Program, established when AIEE and IRE merged in 1963 to form IEEE, recognizes individuals who have accomplishments that have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science, and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society.
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
The American Association for the Advancement of Science is an international non-profit organization dedicated to advancing science around the world by serving as an educator, leader, spokesperson, and professional association. Election as a Fellow of AAAS is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. Fellows are recognized for meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications.
American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE)
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering was founded in 1991 to establish a clear and comprehensive identity for the field of medical and biological engineering - which is the bridge between the principles of engineering science and practice, and the problems and issues of biological and medical science and practice. Fellows are nominated each year by their peers and represent the top 2% of the medical and biological engineering community. These leaders in the field have distinguished themselves through their contributions in research, industrial practice and/or education.
American Physical Society (APS)
As the world's largest physics association, the American Physical Society continues to serve the international physics community with journals, meetings, and public programs.
American Vacuum Society (AVS)
The American Vacuum Society is a nonprofit organization that promotes communication, education, networking, recommended practices, research, and the dissemination of knowledge on an international scale, in the application of vacuum and other controlled environments to understand and develop interfaces, new materials, processes, and devices through the interaction of science and technology. Awards given by AVS are offered to recognize outstanding individual accomplishments in the fields of interest to the Society.
Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
The ACM Fellows Program was established by the Association for Computing Machinery in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding ACM members for their achievements in computer science and information technology and for their significant contributions to the mission of the ACM. The ACM Fellows serve as distinguished colleagues to whom the ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership as the world of information technology evolves.
Electrochemical Society (ECS)
The Electrochemical Society was founded in 1902 as an international nonprofit, educational organization concerned with a broad range of phenomena relating to electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. ECS bridges the gaps among academia, research, and engineering—bringing together scientists from around the world for the exchange of technical information.
The Electromagnetics Academy is devoted to academic excellence and the advancement of research and relevant applications of the electromagnetic theory and to promoting educational objectives of the electromagnetics profession.
Professional body and non-profit organization dedicated to being the national forum for the advancement of the engineering field within Australia.
Institute of Physics (IOP)
The Institute of Physics is a scientific charity devoted to increasing the practice, understanding and application of physics. It has a worldwide membership of over 36,000 and is a leading communicator of physics-related science to all audiences, from specialists through to government and the general public.
International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC)
The International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) promotes the science and technology of control in the broadest sense in all systems, whether, for example, engineering, physical, biological, social or economic, in both theory and application. IFAC is also concerned with the impact of control technology on society.
International Plasma Chemistry Society (IPCS)
The International Plasma Chemistry Society (IPCS) promotes research, organizes scientific conferences, recognizes excellence, and in general nurtures the international community involved in plasma chemistry research.
International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC)
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry serves to advance the worldwide aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the application of chemistry in the service of Mankind. As a scientific, international, non-governmental and objective body, IUPAC can address many global issues involving the chemical sciences.
National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP)
Founded in 1977 at Morgan State University, the mission of the National Society of Black Physicists is to promote the professional well-being of African American physicists and physics students within the international scientific community and within society at large.
Optical Society of America (OSA)
Founded in 1916, The Optical Society was organized to increase and diffuse the knowledge of optics, pure and applied; to promote the common interests of investigators of optical problems, of designers and of users of optical apparatus of all kinds; and to encourage cooperation among them. OSA members who have served with distinction in the advancement of optics may be proposed for election to the class of Fellow. This honor is reserved to no more than 10% of the total membership.
