Sponsored by the IEEE Standards Association

Elisa Bertino

Haran Karmaker

For advancing the security and privacy
of new-generation cellular networks

For leadership in and contributions
to the development of standards for
electrical machines

Elisa Bertino's work improving the security of 4G and 5G cellular
networks provided tools that help identify vulnerabilities to protect these critical infrastructures. To secure cellular networks, she
developed comprehensive methodologies to systematically analyze their many protocols. With LTEInspector, Bertino and her
collaborators identified 10 new vulnerabilities in 4G networks,
including the lack of digital signatures on messages broadcast by
cell towers and lack of reply protections for some messages. She
then led the design of 5GReasoner as a more sophisticated analysis framework for 5G networks able to analyze multiple protocols,
which identified 11 new vulnerabilities. Her contributions are
critical to defending against attacks that could impair everything
from mobile phones to many other advanced applications that
rely on cellular networks for communicating.
An IEEE Fellow, Bertino is the Samuel D. Conte Professor of
Computer Science at Purdue University,West Lafayette, IN, USA.

Haran Karmaker has driven the development of internationally
accepted standards invaluable to advancing the state of the art
in electrical machines. The IEEE 1812-2014 standard on testing
permanent magnet machines developed under his leadership is
used to validate the performance of permanent magnet electrical
machines. Here he validated a test method to separate the friction
and windage losses from core losses by designing, manufacturing,
and testing a large permanent magnet wind turbine generator.
IEEE 115-2019, for testing wound rotor synchronous machines,
was revised under his leadership, addressing losses in large synchronous machines to improve their energy efficiency. For IEEE
112-2017, he included a test method for large induction machines using superposition principles to test in the factory where
facilities for loading large machines are not available.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Karmaker is a principal R&D engineer with
TECO Westinghouse Motor Company, Round Rock,TX, USA.

IEEE Eric E. Sumner Award

IEEE Nikola Tesla Award

Sponsored by Nokia Bell Labs

Sponsored by Wolong Electric Group, the IEEE Industry Applications
Society, and the IEEE Power & Energy Society

En-Hui Yang

Zi-Qiang Zhu

For contributions to theory and practice
of source coding

For contributions to the design, modeling, control, and application of ac permanent magnet machines and drives

En-HuiYang's fundamental source coding theory and state-of-theart compression algorithms for text, images, and video have impacted anyone who has used a smart phone.Yang is a codeveloper
of the YK (Yang-Kieffer) grammar-based universal lossless source
coding schemes that have greatly impacted data compression for
text and form the foundation for Web-acceleration technology. He
also optimized the encoding used in the JPEG image compression standard and developed theories of soft decision quantization
and causal video coding that have been included in the reference
software of the H.264/H.265 video coding standards and popular
open-source video-coding applications. His image and video coding algorithms can be found in practically all communications and
computing devices powered by Android 4.0 and higher.
An IEEE Fellow, FRSC, and FCAE,Yang is a professor and Canada
Research Chair with the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at the University of Waterloo,Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Zi-Qiang Zhu has driven advances in state-of-the-art permanent
magnet (PM) machine technology impacting a wide range of
applications including electric vehicles, wind power generators,
automation systems, and domestic appliances. Zhu has developed
PM machine topologies with high efficiency and high torque
density, including novel rotor-PM and stator-PM, ultra-highspeed, variable-flux, fault-tolerant, and magnetically geared PM
machines. His modeling techniques have addressed fundamental
issues such as analytical calculation of airgap field distribution,
which is critical to optimal design and minimizing parasitic effects of modern PM machines. His work helps reduce energy
consumption and greenhouse gas emissions through significant
efficiency improvements in PM machines and drives.
An IEEE Fellow, Zhu is a professor with the Department of
Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.
