Automatic identification industry to recognise its finest

aimAIM, the industry association recognised as a worldwide authority on automatic identification and mobility, has announced a call for nominees for its annual Automatic Identification and Mobility industry awards to be presented during the 2010 AIM Expo on 3 November at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago, IL.
Established in 1984, the Dilling Award is the highest award given in the Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) industry. It is presented to executives, scientists, and engineers in recognition of outstanding contributions that have furthered the growth of the industry through important applications and new technological developments.
The Percival Award was established in 1982 to honour Don Percival, an early founder and pioneer in the development of barcode scanning. The Award is co-sponsored by the SCAN-Data Capture Report and AIM. The award is presented annually to an individual or organisation from the user community recognising outstanding contributions to the application of automatic identification and data capture technologies.
Named in honor of Ted Williams, an industry innovator, collaborator, and long-time member of the AIM Technical Symbology Committee, the Ted Williams Award is presented annually to a professor or student in recognition of innovative and exceptional contributions that can further the growth of the automatic identification and mobility industry through his/her work as a teacher, researcher and/or entrepreneur.
Sponsored by AIMs Education and Public Policy (EPP) committee, the annual Excellence in Journalism Award recognises a member of either the print or broadcast media whose unbiased communications contribute to a greater understanding of the automatic identification and mobility industry as a whole.
