Theodorakopoulos, Baras Win IEEE Abraham Prize

Ph.D. candidate George Theodorakopoulos and his advisor, Professor John Baras (electical and computer engineering/Institute for Systems Research [ISR]), were selected as winners of the 2007 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Communications Society (ComSoc) Leonard G. Abraham Prize in Communication Systems for their paper "On Trust Models and Trust Evaluation Metrics for Ad Hoc Networks," which appeared in IEEE's Journal on Selected Areas in Communications in 2006.

Their award will be announced at the International Conference on Communications in Glasgow, Scotland, on June 25. Theodorakopoulos and Baras will attend as ComSoc guests and receive their award and honorarium in person.

The Abraham Prize is awarded annually for the best paper in communications systems, published in the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications in the previous calendar year. The selection is based on quality, originality, utility, timeliness and clarity of presentation, after wide solicitation of nominations by the journal's editor-in-chief from the editorial board, guest editors and readership.

George Theodorakopoulos graduates in May 2007 with his Ph.D. in electrical engineering. In the fall he will join the Communications Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne as a postdoctoral research fellow with Professor Jean Yves LeBoudec, who was an ISR Distinguished Lecturer this year.
