John C. Bean

Donald W. Novotny

For providing opportunities to both undergraduate and
pre-college students for discovery through both laboratory
projects and virtual experiments on the world wide web

For pioneering contributions to the analysis and
understanding of ac machine dynamic behavior and
performance in adjustable-speed drives

John C. Bean's goal of providing students with exciting "moments of
discovery" while studying today's complicated world of micro- and
nanoelectronics was realized with the creation of the Web-based
"UVA Virtual Lab," which uses virtual reality to reveal features such as
fields and forces that are invisible to the human eye and to transport
users from human to atomic scales. Covering topics ranging from
basic electric circuits and virtual disassembly of scientific instruments
to explanations of micro/nano device operation, the site's impact can
be seen in the more than 2,000 worldwide educational institutions
that have viewed more than 4 million Web pages since 2005. Dr.
Bean also redesigned the University of Virginia's "Introduction to
Engineering Design" format by replacing a series of dry lectures with
hands-on freshman-level project courses based on a semester-long
team robotics competition in which students take responsibility for
all organizational and operational decisions. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Bean
is currently the J.M. Money Professor of Engineering and Applied
Science at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

Donald W. Novotny's insight into the complex behavior of alternating
current (ac) machines enabled the motor drive technology revolution.
By developing a basic understanding of the unexpected nature of
machine dynamics over a range of frequencies, he clarified the nature
of these responses, showing they were inherent in all induction
machines. This resulted in the ability to evaluate individual machines
to determine the global influence of specific machine parameters and
to predict general trends over an entire range of machine ratings. This
work was the first to demonstrate the strong influence of magnetic
saturation on dynamic response as well as on self-excitation in
induction machines. He published one of the first papers on hysteresis control of current in an ac motor drive, now a standard technique
for current control. More recently he introduced and analyzed the
coaxial winding transformer as a means of drastically reducing leakage
inductance, thus extending the frequency range of many power electronic circuits. An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Novotny is an emeritus
professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Shih-Fu Chang

Roberto Padovani

For pioneering contributions to automated image
classification and search

For pioneering innovations in wireless communications,
particularly to the evolution of CDMA for wireless
broadband data

Shih-Fu Chang has advanced the state of the art of automated search
and classification of digital image and video content. His ground-breaking search paradigms and prototypes allow users to harness the visual
search problem by content-based image matching, searching videos by
a very large pool of semantic concepts and summarizing event patterns
from multiple sources. Dr. Chang and his group developed some of the
first visual-object search systems in 1996-VisualSEEk (one of the most
influential works on content-based image retrieval), WebSEEk (considered the first online Web image search engine) and recently CuZero
(with innovative real-time video navigation capabilities). Applications of
these technologies can be found in next-generation Web search engines
and content management systems for the news, media, government,
biomedical and consumer media domains. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Chang is
Professor and Chairman of Electrical Engineering and Director of Digital
Video and Multimedia Lab at Columbia University. Dr. Chang has
recently expanded his research to study the use patterns of visual
content on Internet and their impact on online information flow.

Digital communication systems pioneer Roberto Padovani transformed
wireless communications by developing and commercializing "third
generation" (3G) cellular communications networks incorporating code
division multiple access (CDMA) technology. Dr. Padovani created the
original CDMA technology with digital processing algorithms and techniques for generation, acquisition and tracking of pseudo-random
systems and modulation and demodulation of higher-order signal constellations and development of turbo codes, all incorporated on
microchips that were continuously seeing reductions in size, power and
cost. The 3G cellular phones, smart-phones and data cards that
consumers purchase today implement the ideas and techniques
developed by these research efforts. Today 700 million users worldwide
use 3G cellular phones. Dr. Padovani then evolved CDMA into a platform
that could also support digital broadband data at rates that were much
higher than those required for voice, resulting in the 1x and EVDO
standards. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Padovani is executive vice president and
chief technology officer at Qualcomm, Inc., San Diego, California.
