Each year, the Internet Society awards the Jonathan B. Postel Service
Award.  The award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding
contributions in service to the data communications community.  The award
includes a presentation crystal and a prize of USD 20,000.  This year the
award will be made during the 70th Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 2-7 December 2007.  The
deadline for nominations is 17 September 2007.

About the Award
The award was established by the Internet Society to recognize and
commemorate the extraordinary stewardship exercised by Jonathan B. Postel
over the course of a thirty year career in networking.  Between 1971 and
1998, Jon managed, nurtured and transformed the RFC series of notes created
by Steve Crocker in 1969.  He also served as the ARPANET "numbers Czar" and
Internet Assigned Numbers Authority over the same period of time.  He was a
founding member of the Internet Architecture (nee Activities) Board and the
first individual member of the Internet Society, where he also served as a
Trustee.  For more information on Jon Postel's life and contributions.

The Jonathan B. Postel Service Award is to honor an individual who has
provided similar sustained and substantial technical contributions, service
to the community, and leadership.  With respect to leadership, the committee
places particular emphasis on candidates who have supported and enabled
others in addition to their own specific actions.

Award Nomination Procedure
The nominee does not need to be a member of ISOC. However, the nominator
does need to be an ISOC member in good standing. Nominate via email to
<postel2007 at isoc.org>, and include the following details:
    1. Name and Email address of nominee
    2. CV/Bio of nominee
    3. Statement of recommendation including specific acts, works,
contributions, and other criteria that would show the nominee to fit the

data communications and the Internet. Please include corroborating
