IEEE AP-S Awards 2016
Each year the APS recognizes individuals or groups of individuals who have made an impact on technology or the society in distinct ways. The 2016 AP-S Awards are denoted by the Society's Field Awards and Best Paper Awards. The Field Awards recognize distinguished contributions based upon technical achievements and/or excellence in education and teaching. Recipients are determined based on nominations and recommendations from APS society members. The Best Paper Awards recognize outstanding contributions in the 2015 issues of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, the Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, and the Antennas and Propagation Magazine. Papers are evaluated based on recommendations from reviewers and the journal editors.
The recipients of the 2016 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Field Awards:
Distinguished Achievement Award
For in-depth electromagnetic analyses of antennas and for innovative antenna designs and their novel realizations for modern communication systems
Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award
For extraordinary impact in high-level education in the Antennas and Propagation community through the European School of Antennas
John Kraus Award
For significant contributions in advancing the analysis, design and measurement of modern reflector antennas for ground and space applications
Lot Shafai Mid-Career Distinguished Achievement Award
For pioneering contribution to microwave-to-millimeter-wave microsystem-based antenna and microwave technologies for Communication and Sensing, and being a role model for women in Engineering
Harrington-Mittra Award in Computational Electromagnetics
For introducing innovative numerical methods to solve practical radiation and scattering problems in electromagnetics
