IEEE AP-S Awards 2018

2018 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Field and Best Paper Awards:

Each year the APS recognizes individuals or groups of individuals who have made an impact on technology or the society in distinct ways. The 2018 AP-S Awards are denoted by the Society 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 2017 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.
