The Call for Nominations issued in April generated a remarkable response. Nominations are currently been reviewed by the selection committee consisting of Howard Birnbaum (chair), Jens Als-Nielsen, Wayne Hendrickson, Michael Knotek, and Roger Pynn.
Nominations include a brief description of the work for which the award is proposed, a statement describing the significance and impact of the work, and a short proposed citation. Supporting letters from two individuals qualified to assess the value of the nominated work are also required. The winner will be notified in advance; the formal announcement and presentation of the award is scheduled for October 18, 1995.
