Conferment of 2012 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Eric E. Sumner Award
June 10-15th, 2012

Andy Molisch, Head of WiDeS, received the 2012 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Eric E. Sumner Award, the IEEE Technical Field Award for the area of communications. One of the highest honors in the IEEE, Technical Field Awards are institute-wide awards (i.e., not given by a specific society, but rather the whole IEEE), and are given for contributions or leadership in specific fields of interest of the IEEE. Applicants are evaluated based on research, development and application contributions to all aspects of leading-edge communication technology. The award cites Molisch’s “contributions to the theory and application of multiple-antenna systems in wireless communications."

The award was bestowed at a ceremony at the IEEE International Conference on Communications in Ottawa, Canada.
