Outstanding Service Award

The OSA is awarded for services rendered to IFIP. TC and WG members not normally eligible for the Silver Core Award are eligible for the OSA. In WG 8.2, we have a standing committee consisting of all past WG 8.2 Silver Core and OSA awardees for nominating candidates for the OSA and forwarding them to the TC8 chair for consideration.
