Lixia Zhang

Bryan Kibble

For contributions toward an understanding of the
complex interactions between Internet components
and the development of the Internet architecture

For pioneering experiments and techniques in the field
of fundamental electrical metrology leading to the
realization of SI units

Lixia Zhang has had a major influence on Internet vendors, network
operators and researchers, and standards developers. She was instrumental in the development of the Resource ReSerVation
Protocol (RSVP), which is implemented by almost every major router
vendor today for Internet resource management and traffic control
applications. Dr. Zhang coined the term "middlebox" to describe a
new class of Internet devices that were not part of the original
Internet architecture. These devices include the Web proxies,
firewalls and network address translators that operate between
different servers and computers using the Internet. The term is now
part of standard Internet terminology. She has been active in
improving security for critical Internet infrastructure services, on international advisory boards and has worked to establish international
collaborations between U.S. and Asian countries on Internet
research and operations. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Zhang is currently a
professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she
directs the Internet Research Lab that she founded.

Bryan Kibble has reshaped the SI system through his determinations and definitions of the ampere, volt, ohm and kilogram, and
his principles have become the established methods for generations of metrologists who have followed him. Dr. Kibble measured
the gyromagnetic ratio of the proton, which improved the realization of the SI definition of the ampere. This work was significant
in uncovering a substantial error in the traditional realization of
the ampere with current balances. Subsequently, his best-known
work involved the development of what would become known
as the "watt balance" and resulted in worldwide acceptance of
the Josephson and von Klitzing constants to represent the conventional values of the volt and ohm. Prior to this, major
industrialized nations had different representations for these
units, presenting a trade barrier to the sale of electrical measuring
instruments. Watt balances are now playing a role in redefining
the kilogram. Dr. Kibble is currently an independent consultant
residing in Hampton, U.K.

Ronald Gordon Harley

Ernest S. Kuh

For contributions to monitoring, control and
optimization of electrical processes including electrical
machines and power networks

For outstanding contributions to theory and practice
in circuits and systems and for pioneering work in
electronic design automation

Ronald Gordon Harley is among the top researchers in the areas of
electric machines, drives and power electronics. His innovations
include micro machines, power electronics and intelligence
systems, such as applying neural networks for improved monitoring and control. Dr. Harley's early work and books about
synchronous machines taught engineers how to analyze and
diagnose stability issues in power systems applications, and his
more recent contributions have provided innovative intelligent
methods for monitoring the health of induction motors. He
developed a micromachines research lab in South Africa, which
was instrumental in modeling the behavior of generators and
induction motors for the benefit of the South African power grid.
His group in South Africa was the first to propose and implement a
neural-network-based adaptive controller for the current and
speed loops of an induction motor. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Harley is
currently a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta.

With a career spanning over 50 years as a professor and scientist,
Ernest S. Kuh's pioneering contributions have shaped both circuit
theory and electronic design automation (EDA) of large-scale integrated circuits and systems. EDA has streamlined the design and
production of circuits by automating not only the design but also
the placement of electronic components and the routing of wires
and connections between the components. After important early
contributions to circuit theory and analysis, Dr. Kuh switched his
focus in the 1980s to what would become EDA, making long-lasting contributions in all aspects of design automation, with many
methods adopted by the industry. He also developed simulators to
handle large circuits with good accuracy and improved speed over
existing programs. He has mentored about 40 Ph.D. students, who
have made significant contributions in propelling EDA into the vital
role that it plays in the electronics industry today. A Life Fellow of
the IEEE, Dr. Kuh is currently the William S. Floyd Jr. Professor
Emeritus in Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.
