The ISSX Awards Committee consists of six (6) appointed members, plus the President-elect as chairperson. Each appointed member serves a four year term, with half rotating off every two years.
The committee reviews nominations for Society awards, whose presentation will be linked to Society meetings. A Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award and Distinguished Service Award are presented at each international meeting, every three years, with nominees drawn from an international pool of eligible scientists. A Scientific Achievement Award and New Investigator Award are presented at the Society's regional meetings or Society-sponsored meetings, with nominees drawn from the respective regions where the meetings are held (Americas, Asia Pacific or Europe). After reviewing all nominations, the Awards Committee sends the names of selected awardees, if any, to the President for final approval.
The Duties of the Awards Committee are to:
