Biennial Selection of Distinguished Fellows
- Each Fellow can suggest one Fellow for promotion, excluding himself.
- Votes are then cast for one among the suggested Fellows.
- 50% + 1 vote of the total number of Fellows who cast their votes is needed for earning the title of Distinguished Fellow.
- In case no candidate earns the sufficient number of votes in the first round, two Fellows with the highest number of votes are voted for in the second round.
- If there are only two candidates in the first round, no second round is held.
- In case of a tie, both Fellows earn the title of Distinguished Fellow.
- If there is only one candidate, he or she needs to receive support of at least square root (rounded to the first higher whole number) of all Fellows.
- Nominations and each voting round last two weeks unless such results are obtained earlier that no remaining votes can change the final outcome.
- The entire selection procedure will take place during the last third of each even calendar year.
