Just read that the IEEE have extended the deadline for nominations for the Fusion Technology Award until the 10th of March 2017 (Plaque and $3000)
To recognize outstanding contributions to research and development in the field of Fusion Technology. Two awards are presented at each biennial Symposium on Fusion Engineering (SOFE), one for each calendar year of the two year cycle with the first year corresponding to the year between SOFE conferences and the second year corresponding to the year of the SOFE conference at which the presentation is made.
$3,000 and a plaque. Each award recipient will have SOFE conference registration fees waived for the conference year in which the award is presented and will be reimbursed reasonable travel expenses for conference attendance upon presentation of a travel report.
This award is funded by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society and the travel expenses by the SOFE conference at which the presentations are made.

I for one think we should nominate Richard Hull, I can't think of any one else who has inspired more people and contributed more to the art of nuclear fusion than Richard, comment below if you think it is worth a shot.
We would need to submit a well written letter to the IEEE., so would anyone like to suggest a nominee below and state the reason(s) why he or she deserves it.
