2015 EurAAP Awards

The Awards

The EurAAP Awards are granted every year, during the European Conference on Antennas & Propagation event. Starting in 2015, 2 Awards will be given:

  • the EurAAP Antenna Award,
  • the EurAAP Propagation Award.

These Awards aim at recognising the contribution of an individual person to:

  • Advances in Antennas & Propagation
  • Education in the fields of Antennas & Propagation
  • Coordination of research & networking activities in the fields of Antennas & Propagation in Europe or in relationship to Europe

The Awards consist of:

  • a plaque;
  • a free registration for the 2016 edition of EuCAP
  • a free ticket for the Conference Dinner at the 2016 edition of EuCAP.

The Award will be presented at EuCAP’2015’s Conference Dinner.

Awards Committee

The recipients of the Awards will be selected by an Award Committee composed of 7 members: the leader of the EurAAP WG Societal Issues, who will act as Chairperson, and 6 members appointed for a three-year term by the EurAAP BoD on behalf of the EurAAP Delegates Assembly. Their deliberations will be confidential, and their decision final.

Nominations

All EurAAP members have had the possibility to nominate candidates. A biography of the nominees must have been provided, highlighting the reasons why the nominated candidate should be considered for the prize. The candidates could also get endorsements from other EurAAP members. The nomination forms have been available in the conference website.

Winners

  • Propagation: Bertram Arbesser-Rastburg, European Space Agency & SpaceTec Partners SPRL
  • Antennas: Ross Stone, IEEE

 

2015 EurAAP Leopold B. Felsen Award

The Award

The “Leopold B. Felsen Award for Excellence in Electrodynamics” was originally established jointly by the University of Siena and the University of Sannio, funded through a donation from Michael and Judy Felsen in fulfilment of the last wishes of their father, Professor Leo Felsen (1924-2005). Starting from 2015, the Award will be established by the European Association on Antennas and Propagation. 

The main purpose of the EurAAP Leopold B. Felsen Award is to keep alive Prof. Felsen’s memory and scientific legacy, as well as to foster academic excellence in the electromagnetics community, by giving recognition to outstanding scientific contributions from early stage researchers in electrodynamics, with emphasis on wave interactions with complex environments. Detailed information on the Award is available at EurAAP Leopold B Felsen Award.

The award consists of a prize of 4000 euros, which will be funded by the Felsen Family through a donation.

The Award will be presented every year at EuCAP’s Conference Dinner.

Award Committee

A committee composed by Prof. Vincenzo Galdi (University of Sannio) and by other four prominent scientists will be in charge of the selection. For the first edition, Prof. Galdi will chair the committee. The committee will assign the Award on the basis of:

  • Pertinence of the topics;
  • Relevance and quality of the presented papers;
  • Scientific standing of the candidate.

The four members of the committee will be chosen by the EurAAP Board of Directors (BoD), in consultation with Prof. Galdi. For the first edition, Prof. Felsen’s son (Michael) and daughter (Judy) will be invited to EuCAP’2015’s Conference Dinner to present the prize.

Eligibility and Nomination

The Award, by nomination only, will be presented annually, as a career award, to an early stage researcher. Information on the documentation the nominators must submit has been available at the conference website.

Eligible nominees should be under 40 years of age at the submission deadline. Previous awardees (also from the former Sannio and Siena editions) are not eligible.

All documents were sent to Prof. Galdi, to the Chair of the EurAAP Awards Committee and the Chair of the EurAAP Board of Directors:

  • Prof. Vicenzo Galdi, University of Sannio

  • Dr. Marta Martínez Vázquez, Chair of the EurAAP Awards Committee

  • Prof. Juan R. Mosig, Chair of the EurAAP Board of Directors

Winner

  • Francesco Andriulli

The Award

The EuCAP 2015 Best Paper Awards have been created to contribute to the recognition of scientific quality of research and engineering in four thematic domains:

  • Measurement
  • Propagation
  • Electromagnetic and Antenna Theory
  • Antenna Design and Applications.

The Awards consist of offers sponsored by J. Wiley and EPFL.

The authors of the selected papers are invited to compete for the Awards on a special poster session held on the afternoon of Thursday, April 16th.
