About Fellow Recommendation
Overview
 This System shall be carried out as a part of the membership system of this Institute in accordance with the intent of Section 4, Article 2 of the Regulations of the IEICE. The Institute grows and serves society at large through the vigorous activities of its members. It is founded on contributions made by its members to the Institute through pioneering accomplishments in academic and technical areas, through the provision of education and technical guidance to cultivate human resources who will play active roles in the Institute, and through vigorous participation in the business activities of the Institute. While the Institute embraces a deep feeling of gratitude and a deep sense of respect for these contributions, this System has been established to award the title of Fellow to senior members who are recognized for outstanding contributions, in order to express the Institute’s gratitude explicitly. The awarding of fellow grade signifies not only our sense of esteem and gratitude for the past contributions of the awardees but also our hope that they will continue to lead the Institute activities, thereby also serving society at large.
