Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.
IEEE APS is organizing the 13th Annual Student Design Competition this year in Denver. The topic for this year is “Miniaturized Antennas in IoT Applications”. Out of 30 submissions, only 6 teams have been selected as finalists in the competition. KAUST IMPACT Lab team, in collaboration with KU Leuven and UESTC, has qualified for the finals.
KAUST Research Conference on Extreme Bandwidth Communication: From mmWave, THz to Optical Bands was held in KAUST Library from March 21st to 23rd.
