Harold Jan Schoemaker Award

Founding Statement

The Schoemaker Award was established by the IAHR Council in 1980 to recognise the efforts made by Professor Schoemaker, Secretary (1960-1979), in guiding the Journal of Hydraulic Research in its formative years. 

The Award is made biennially by the IAHR to the author(s) of the paper judged the most outstanding paper published in the IAHR Journal of Hydraulic Research.

Rules for the administration of the award

1. The Harold Jan Schoemaker Award (hereinafter referred to as the Award) will be made at each biennial IAHR world congress, to the author(s) of the paper judged the most outstanding and published in JHR during the preceding two-year period.

2. The awardee will be selected by the Editor of JHR in consultation with the Editorial Board. The awardee will be selected by majority vote of the Editorial Board. The selected candidate must be endorsed by a majority vote of Council conducted electronically. Non-members of IAHR are eligible for this award. The Editor will actively seek nominations from the IAHR membership (also non-members whose employers are corporate members will be considered) and will publish at least bi-annually an advertisement calling for nominations. The advertisement will include a brief description of the supporting material which is to accompany nominations.

3. The awardee(s) shall be notified by the Executive Director in good time so the awardee can attend the Award ceremony at the World Congress.

4. An award needs not be made during any biennium in which the Council considers none of the nominees to be of sufficient high quality.

5. The award will consist of a bronze medal and a certificate.

Initial contact regarding nominations for the Award should be made with:
IAHR Secretariat
Tel.: +34 91 335 7908
Nominations should be submitted before January 15th, of the year of the World Congress (unless otherwise notified in IAHR media)
