Since 2018, COSMIC has issuing awards to those who make an important contribution to COSMIC Software Measurement:
During the IWSM Conference in Haarlem COSMIC has presented two awards to honour activities that help to progress the COSMIC method for sizing software.
The winner of the research award was Gabriele De Vito, for his research on the Design and automation of a COSMIC measurement procedure based on UML models. The winner of the certification award is CEPREI. CEPREI grew out of the inspection division of China Electronic Product Reliability and Environmental Research Institute, which is the first scientific research organization at national level engaged in product quality and reliability research in China. In 2018, during the IWSM Mensura conference in Beijing, COSMIC honoured Charles Symons with a lifetime achievement award for the work he has done in developing the COSMIC method.
In 2020, when the IWSM Mensura conference will be held in Mexico, awards on COSMIC automation will be presented.
