2020 IEEE TECHNICAL FIELD AWARDS

IEEE Transportation Technologies Award

IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications, Industrial Electronics,
Intelligent Transportation Systems, Microwave Theory and Techniques,
Power Electronics, Power & Energy, and Vehicular Technology Societies

Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

Markos Papageorgiou

Rajesh Kannan Megalingam

For contributions to traffic flow modelling and operations

For his exemplary role in encouraging
undergraduate engineering students to
take up research for developing innovative solutions for the society

Markos Papageorgiou's vehicular traffic-flow modeling and control tools are making travel safer and more efficient and are helping save energy and reduce emissions. His local ramp-metering
algorithm ALINEA (developed in 1987) is recognized as a milestone in the field and is used around the world.The macroscopic
simulation software METANET (developed in 1989) for freeway
networks is still one of the most widely used traffic-flow tools.
He introduced the concept of feedback in driver information
and route guidance systems and contributed to the deployment
of a large-scale implementation of travel-time displays in Paris,
France, involving approximately 450 vehicle management systems. Developed in 2005, his coordinated ramp-metering algorithm HERO is widely considered the most advanced and efficient approach in this area.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Papageorgiou is a professor at the
Technical University of Crete, Chania, Greece.

Committed to research and development with a special focus on humanitarian needs, Rajesh Kannan Megalingam motivates his undergraduate students at Amrita University to take on research activities
and projects that help improve the world. Student research at the undergraduate level in India is rare, but Megalingam established an engineering program that provides opportunities to publish papers and
attend conferences around the world. As leader of the Humanitarian
Technologies (HuT) Lab at Amrita, he also provides his students with
invaluable experience in developing technologies that are making a
difference. Humanitarian-geared projects created under his guidance
include a hand-gesture-based wheelchair, a search-and-rescue robot,
and an unmanned robotic coconut tree climber and harvester, all
completed with the help of only undergraduate students.
An IEEE Senior Member, Megalingam is director of the
Humanitarian Technology Labs at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham
University, Kollam, India.

2019 IEEE STAFF AWARDS

2019 Joyce E. Farrell IEEE Staff Award

2019 IEEE Eric Herz Outstanding Staff Member Award

Casey Schwartz

Jonathan Dahl

For embodiment of the IEEE Professional
Core and dedicated service to the IEEE

For leadership in and contributions
toward the extraordinary growth in
the awareness and reach of the IEEE's
electronic libraries

Casey Schwartz is known as a diligent, strategic, and empathetic
individual who puts the customer at the heart of the IEEE decision-making process. Responsible for the day-to-day business operations of IEEE Xplore, her work involves business prioritization,
requirements analysis, competitive benchmarking, content management, usability testing, web accessibility, and digital advertising
for the IEEE Xplore platform. She leads a group dedicated to optimizing the user experience for all IEEE Xplore customers, working
closely with the technology teams and the IEEE user community
to develop solutions to optimize the use and value of IEEE Xplore.
A graduate of Rutgers University holding certifications through
the Project Management Institute and the Scrum Alliance, Schwartz
is currently associate director of IEEE Xplore in the IEEE Marketing,
Sales, and Design Department, Piscataway, NJ, USA.

Jonathan Dahl's leadership in growing IEEE's worldwide sales of
digital intellectual property became a major part of the revenue
that has been crucial to funding activities and programs the Institute offers its members.As Senior Director of IEEE Sales and Marketing for 16 years, Dahl helped navigate the often-tumultuous
transition from print to electronic delivery of publishing content.
He and his staff worked closely with IEEE volunteers to develop
indispensable products for customers around the world, including
the All Society Periodicals Package, IEEE Enterprise, and MIT
eBooks collection. Most of the word's top universities became
IEEE subscribers.When the academic market became nearly saturated, he and his team focused on corporate subscriptions.
Dahl retired from IEEE in 2019 as lead director of Continuing
Professional Education and currently resides in Maplewood, NJ, USA.
