Mark S. Humayun

Siegfried Selberherr

For contributions to the bioelectric retinal
implant

For pioneering contributions to Technology Computer Aided Design

A pioneer in vision restoration, Mark S. Humayun's development
of the Argus II bioelectric artificial retina is improving patient
quality of life by restoring sight to the blind. The first and to date
only artificial retina to be both approved by the U.S. FDA and receive the European CE mark, the device receives image data from
an external camera that is wirelessly transmitted to an electronic
array implanted on the retina, enabling patients who are blind to
recover enough vision to see letters and large objects and navigate
obstacles. Key to the realization of the implant was Humayun's
ability to lead diverse teams of engineers and combine the unique
elements of electrical/biomechanical engineering, optics, materials science, and miniaturization. Humayun's current focus with
the implant is on providing color vision and the ability to read
smaller text.
An IEEE Fellow, Humayun is a professor at the University of
Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

One of the founders of modern Technology Computer Aided Design (TCAD), Siegfried Selberherr has provided modeling and software development tools invaluable to the continued miniaturization of semiconductor devices.TCAD involves the use of computer
simulation to develop and optimize semiconductor processing technologies. Selberherr developed MINIMOS for two-dimensional
predictive simulation of the electrical characteristics of miniaturized devices to understand and control the short-channel effects
and doping profiles encountered as device sizes shrink. MINIMOS
was later enhanced for three-dimensional simulation to address energy transport and interface physics. He also created the ZOMBIE
and PROMIS simulators, which incorporated mesh generation and
programming interfaces. Selberherr then developed the Vienna Integrated System for TCAD Applications (VISTA) to combine both
process and device simulation tools in a common framework.
An IEEE Fellow, Selberherr is a professor with the Institute for
Microelectronics at the Technische Universität Wien,Vienna, Austria.

IEEE Control Systems Award

IEEE Electromagnetics Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society

Sponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation, IEEE
Electromagnetic Compatibility, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing,
and IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Societies

John N. Tsitsiklis

Tatsuo Itoh

For contributions to the theory and
application of optimization in large
dynamic and distributed systems

For contributions to electromagnetic
modelling, artificial materials, microwave electronics, and antennas

A leader in the effort to optimize and control large-scale dynamic and
distributed systems, John N. Tsitsiklis' algorithmic innovations have
made possible advances in diverse applications ranging from dynamic
resource allocation to sensor networks and distributed computation.
Dynamic programming, the central methodology behind sequential
decision making and control, often suffers from the curse of dimensionality.Tsitsiklis' work is behind some of the most powerful methods
for overcoming this challenge in settings such as reinforcement learning, path planning, and the pricing of complex financial derivatives.
Furthermore, his early work on consensus algorithms and distributed
and asynchronous computation is impacting modern large-scale optimization methods, network management, and distributed control.
An IEEE Fellow and a member of the U.S. National Academy
of Engineering, Tsitsiklis is a Clarence J. Lebel Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
Cambridge, MA, USA.

With over 50 years of theoretical and technological innovations,Tatsuo Itoh is among the most respected experts in electromagnetics and
microwave techniques. He extended electromagnetic simulation to
high-frequency applications, developing models that allow inclusion
of relevant interactions between microwave circuit elements, their
packaging, and the electromagnetic environment. His comprehensive
field-based approach to global modeling helped establish the systemin-package concept important to smart phones. Itoh's spectral domain method for microwave circuit analysis is one of the most popular techniques for computer-aided design of microwave components.
Recent achievements include realizing metamaterials enabling leakywave antennas that can continuously scan from the backward wave
region to the forward wave region as a function of frequency.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Itoh is the Northrop Grumman Chair in
Electrical Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles,
Los Angeles, CA, USA.
