IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society

David W. Allan

Alan Willson

For leadership in time determination and
precise timing instruments

For fundamental contributions to the
theory and design of nonlinear circuits
and signal processing systems

Keeping time, or more precisely, keeping accurate time, has been the
focus of David W. Allan's career. He developed a device to automatically remove systematic timing errors from quartz-crystal oscillators
used for generating the United States' official time. He also created
a dual-mixer time-difference measurement system with sub-picosecond precision for comparing atomic clocks. His GPS commonview timing receiver has been used to transfer time from timing
centers around the world to the International Bureau of Weights
and Measures for generating coordinated universal time (UTC) as
the world's official time. His "smart-clock" method for enhancing
GPS civil signals has been instrumental in synchronizing cell phone
towers. The Allan Variance, Modified Allan Variance, and the Time
Variance, which he developed, have become international standards
for designing and constructing time and frequency equipment.
An IEEE Life Senior Member, Allan is president of Allan's
TIME, Fountain Green, UT, USA.

Alan Willson's seminal achievements over 50 years (many in collaboration with his Ph.D. students) have substantially enhanced
theory and design in the fields of nonlinear circuits and digital signal processing (DSP). His nonlinear circuits research has produced
fundamental theorems for transistor circuits that have lasting impact. He has also developed highly effective design techniques
for finite impulse response digital filters. Willson's work on direct
digital synthesizer technology, resulting in many patents through
his company Pentomics, Inc., has had significant industrial application. In the early 1970s Willson also created the University
of California, Los Angeles' first DSP courses and research projects.
An IEEE Life Fellow and U.S. National Academy of Engineering member, Willson is the Charles P. Reames Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA,
USA.

IEEE Leon K. Kirchmayer Graduate Teaching Award

IEEE Koji Kobayashi Computers and
Communications Award

Sponsored by the Leon K. Kirchmayer Memorial Fund

Sponsored by NEC Corporation

Mark S. Lundstrom

Victor Bahl

For creating a global online community
for graduate education in nanotechnology as well as teaching, inspiring, and
mentoring graduate students

For contributions to broadband wireless
systems

Mark S. Lundstrom's innovative courses and pioneering online programs are transforming the way electronics is taught. Lundstrom created nanoHUB to provide online access to simulations of nano-materials
and devices. He then developed nanoHUB-U to provide short courses
that bring new insights and understanding from research to graduate
education. More than 60,000 students from over 1,000 universities
have registered for these courses. He complemented nanoHUB-U
with the student-friendly Lessons from Nanoscience Lecture Notes
series, which aims to rethink traditional topics, so that working from
the nanoscale to the macroscale becomes natural and intuitive. In his
work with students, Lundstrom instills the need for clear and concise
communication and demonstrates the importance of intellectual honesty and modesty in everything a student or professional does.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Lundstrom is the Don and Carol Scifres
Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA.

With seminal research achievements that have enabled the modern
wireless Internet to become a reality, Victor Bahl has shaped the
broadband access technologies we take for granted today, making Internet access more affordable, reliable, and globally available.
Among his many important contributions, Bahl developed opportunistic networking and the world's first white space network. He
was instrumental in the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's decision to open 180 MHz of spectrum for unlicensed use.
His community wireless mesh networks implementing multi radio
routers also brought affordable Internet access to rural communities. Other accomplishments include the first Wi-Fi hotspot;Wi-Fi
based indoor localization systems, which showed how RF signals
can be used for functionality beyond communications; and Virtual
Wi-Fi available in today's computers and smartphones.
An IEEE Fellow, Bahl is a Distinguished Scientist with Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, USA.
