The former Convergence Transportation Electronics Association (CTEA) in June 1992 developed the Convergence Outstanding Paper Award (later renamed the Trevor O. Jones Outstanding Paper Award). An endowment established by Siemens Automotive, Ford Motor Company and ITT Automotive supports the award in perpetuity. This Award honors the author of written paper which covers aspects of passenger car, truck, and commercial vehicle electronics systems. This award recognizes Trevor O. Jones, Founder of Convergence®, for his contributions to the field of transportation electronics. Papers will be judged primarily for their value as technically new and innovative contributions to the existing knowledge base of transportation electronics. Reviews shall be based upon the value of the paper itself as an original contribution, not upon the value of a development or invention already known which the paper may describe. The Trevor O. Jones Outstanding Paper Award consists of a medal and $5,000 cash honorarium and will be presented at WCX or another major relevant event.
