For contributions to IEEE publications,
awards, and globalization

For original and high-impact contributions to IEEE's Educational Activities,
expanding IEEE's global reach and
effectiveness

Known for inspiring others to always give their best in each of
their IEEE volunteer activities and to pursue increasing involvement, Stephen Weinstein's contributions to IEEE have strengthened the Institute's global reach, its publications, and its awards
program. A communications engineer with over 45 years of experience,Weinstein served as president of the IEEE Communications
Society (ComSoc) in 1996-97, was a member of the IEEE Board
of Directors in 2002-03, and was Vice Chair of the IEEE Awards
Board in 2010-12. To encourage globalization of IEEE and extend the reach of ComSoc, while ComSoc president Weinstein
initiated "sister society" agreements with the Korean Institute of
Communications Society (KICS) and the Russian A.S. Popov
Society and traveled to Vietnam and Germany to initiate sister
society negotiations. He also was dedicated to developing numerous joint international technical initiatives and conference events.
His efforts resulted in ComSoc becoming the first IEEE Society
to have non-U.S. membership exceed U.S. members. Weinstein's
contributions to publications include cofounding IEEE Communications Magazine and the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.
He also helped establish the Journal of Communications Networks as
an English-language journal of the KICS technically cosponsored
by ComSoc, served as its first editor-in-chief, and established a
prestigious editorial board with global representation. His contributions as member and Vice Chair of the IEEE Awards Board
included redefining corporate recognitions as major IEEE awards,
which was critical to enhancing the importance of IEEE's awards
to industry. As chair of the Awards Policies and Procedures Board,
he significantly improved the clarity and value of the guidelines for
finding and rewarding excellent award candidates.
An IEEE Life Fellow and recipient of the IEEE Communications Society Exemplary Global Service Award (2007),Weinstein
is president of Communication Theory and Technology Consulting, New York, NY, USA.

Moshe Kam has dedicated his career to breaking down the barriers that limit access to the engineering profession, and to helping people from all backgrounds understand what engineers do.
As an IEEE volunteer he has transformed IEEE's educational
activities to spur interest in engineering by new audiences and
facilitate the pursuit of engineering as a career path by young students worldwide. In 2005 Kam spearheaded TryEngineering.org,
IEEE's most popular and successful online education program.
This portal serves as the predominant source of pre-university
engineering education for students, parents, and school counselors. The success of TryEngineering.org led to the development
of the IEEE's TryNano.org and TryComputing.org portals. Kam
also championed the development of IEEE's version of the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) project. Developed by Purdue University but originally implemented mostly in
the United States, EPICS provides students with the opportunity
to create technological solutions for their communities in cooperation with nongovernmental organizations and humanitarian
groups. Using IEEE's resources and working with fellow volunteers, Kam expanded EPICS' reach around the world with over
40 projects, including a project that supplied reliable electricity
to rural schools in Uruguay and a joint industry-IEEE venture
to provide solar-energy-heated water for an orphanage in South
Africa. Kam has also expanded the IEEE Teacher-in-Service Program, which trains IEEE volunteers to work with pre-university
teachers on lesson plans in engineering and engineering design,
thereby bringing hands-on engineering activities into the classroom. Another area where Kam induced change was IEEE's participation in accreditation of engineering programs outside the
United States. Going beyond the traditional IEEE educational
workshops on accreditation, he played a pivotal role in developing training programs for program evaluators in Peru, assisting
accreditation programs in China, and creating a new accreditation
body for Caribbean nations.
An IEEE Past President, IEEE Fellow, and recipient of the
IEEE Third Millennium Medal (2000), Kam is dean of the Newark College of Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ, USA.

Scope: For distinguished service to the development, viability,
advancement, and pursuit of the technical objectives of IEEE.

Scope: For outstanding service to IEEE.
