Antennas researcher wins ICC 2016 Best Paper Award

Posted on May 13, 2016

A paper co-authored by Dr Maged Elkashlan, a lecturer in the Antennas group, has won the Best Paper award for the Communications Theory Symposium, a part of the 2016 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC). Titled "Molecular Communication with a Reversible Adsorption Receiver", the paper was a collaboration with researchers from King's College London, United Kingdom, the University of Montreal & University of Ottawa, Canada, and the University of British Columbia, Canada. ICC is held in Malaysia later this month.

The Best Paper Award (BPA) will be presented during the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday May 24 between 9:00-10:30am in Conference Hall 1&2, Level 3, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

This year, in order to have a fair BPA selection process, an independent BPA Selection Committee was formed to review the nominated candidate papers and vote to select the BPA winners. The BPA Selection Committee is composed of nine distinguished researchers. The committee members were asked to email their votes to the TPC Chairs. All votes are kept confidential.

The papers with most votes are the winners of the Best Paper Award in each symposium.

BPA winners and the selection procedure are posted on ICC 2016 website at:
