2021 IEEE TECHNICAL FIELD AWARDS

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

IEEE James L. Flanagan Speech and
Audio Processing Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society

Constantine A. Balanis

David Nahamoo

For contributions to electromagnetics
through excellence in book authorship,
teaching, and antenna research

For contributions to and leadership in
research and deployment of spokenlanguage technologies

A prolific author and innovative educator, Constantine A. Balanis
inspired and sustained active teaching of antennas and graduate electromagnetics courses and provided invaluable resources
for practicing engineers. When academia and industry needed
an updated and modernized resource for antenna students and
engineers, Balanis authored Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design
(Wiley, 1982), now in its fourth edition. In 1989, he wrote Advanced Engineering Electromagnetics (Wiley). Both books have become the gold standards in their respective fields, providing thorough and detailed descriptions and elucidations while presenting
cutting-edge technologies.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Balanis is a Regents Professor of Electrical Engineering with the School of Electrical, Computer and
Energy Engineering at Arizona State University,Tempe, AZ, USA.

David Nahamoo's groundbreaking efforts in automatic speech
processing technologies paved the way for the successful speech
applications in use today that are critical to facilitating humancomputer interaction. His work has been at the forefront of
speech recognition engine development, including acoustic modeling, novel training strategies, and real-time limited-resourcebased automatic speech recognition solutions. He developed the
adaptive labeling concept, which was a component of IBM's early
real-time isolated speech dictation products. He also led IBM's
development of state-of-the art speech processing technology including ViaVoice Dictation, cloud Speech2Text, and Text2Speech.
The speech applications offered in products including Apple's Siri,
Amazon's Alexa, and Microsoft's Cortana are firmly grounded in
the fundamental principles established by Nahamoo.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Nahamoo is chief technology officer of
Pryon, Inc., Raleigh, NC, USA.

IEEE Fourier Award for Signal Processing

IEEE Herman Halperin Electric Transmission and
Distribution Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and the
IEEE Signal Processing Society

Sponsored by the Robert and Ruth Halperin Foundation, in memory of
Herman and Edna Halperin, and the IEEE Power & Energy Society

K.J. Ray Liu

Brian Stott

For outstanding leadership in and
pioneering contributions to signal
processing for wireless sensing and
communications

For contributions to the development and
application of power flow and optimal
power flow analysis

A world leader in signal processing for wireless sensing and communications, the technologies developed by K.J. Ray Liu are
helping make life better for millions of people. Liu tackled the
long-standing challenge of indoor wireless localization with technology that can achieve 1-2 cm location accuracy under nonline-of-sight conditions with only a single WiFi device. His device-free wireless artificial-intelligence platform develops analytic
engines to revolutionize unobstrusive detection of human motion, falls, vital signs, and can monitor sleep and well-being using
ambient radio waves. Such a technology enables automobiles to
detect the presence of children left behind in backseats to help
avoid heat-related deaths.
An IEEE Fellow, Liu is a Distinguished University Professor
and the Christine Kim Eminent Professor of Information Technology at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA.

Brian Stott's pioneering contributions to software applications
used in the planning, analysis, and operation of electric power systems have contributed to the safe and reliable use of transmission
networks. His " fast decoupled " power flow algorithm became the
most widely used power industry computer application in the
world. He pioneered the development of security-constrained
optimal power flow (SCOPF) using quasilinear-programming
techniques. These SCOPF methods, and the associated software
originally developed in the company that he cofounded in 1984,
are also in wide application. They are used for network-constrained economic dispatch, voltage optimization, and financial
transmission right markets in more than 120 electric utility control and/or market centers around the world.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Stott is the president of Stott, Inc., Scottsdale, AZ, USA.
