Inventor of the Year Award

Hello PIPLA Members:

The PIPLA 2023 Inventor of the Year Award goes to Howie Choset of Carnegie Mellon University!

As the next nomination cycle rolls around, if you know local inventor(s) whose patented developments have been economically significant and/or made positive contributions to society, let us know and make the case for them.

Many important inventions are coming from our region – please help PIPLA shine a spotlight on them!

The next year nomination form is pending, with submission instructions pending.

Nominations will be open again later in 2023 for the 2024 award.

Any questions regarding the Inventor of the Year Award, please send directly to James Singer at
