Deadline to submit names and contact information for award nominees and nominators by March 1, 2016.
Please submit complete name, affiliation, and contact information for both the person making the nomination and the person being nominated to the Chair of the NAMF Award Committee:
David S. Dickey at firstname.lastname@example.org
112 Simmons Drive, Coppell, TX 75019-3303 USA
Please provide a brief description of why the nominee should be considered for the award. If necessary the committee may need to contact the nominator for additional information about the background of the nominee.
Excellence: Outstanding contributions to the understanding, development, and improvement of mixing knowledge are examples of excellence.
Sustained Contributions: Sustained should mean more than twenty years of significant involvement in technical meetings on mixing, such as NAMF biennial mixing conferences, AIChE annual meetings and other international conferences on mixing.
Research: Research can be advanced degree studies resulting in a thesis on a mixing related topic or academic direction of students engaged in mixing research. Industrial research can be internal work to understand, improve, or solve laboratory, pilot, or production problems involving mixing. Publication or presentation of the results of such research is expected.
Practice: Professional work as a significant resource or consultant for solving mixing problems is considered as practice in mixing.
A nominee should show contributions to all these areas of mixing. While the award is not a popularity contest, applications received from multiple sources may provide a more complete background of a nominee for consideration by the award committee. In any case, the nominee should be someone broadly recognized in the community of mixing practitioners, including NAMF members.
