“Best Paper Award” from IEEE CAMA
Dec 21, 2016


The team from ITU Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering won Ulrich L. Rohde Innovative Conference Paper Award in “2016 IEEE International Conference on Antenna Measurements & Applications Focus on Antenna Systems” held by the Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineers- IEEE in the city of Syracuse in the USA in October 23-27. The paper written by Prof. Dr. İbrahim Akduman, a lecturer and the head of Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering; Agah Oktay Ertay, a research assistant in Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering and a PhD student in Telecommunication Engineering Program; Semih Doğu, a master’s student in Telecommunication Engineering Program; Prof. Dr. Hülya Şahintürk, a lecturer at YTU Department of Engineering Mathematics was one of two studies worthy of this award in this conference.

What are IEEE APS and IEEE CAMA?

One of the societies within the Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineers- IEEE, which is one of the largest professional technical organizations in the world, IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society – IEEE APS do the research in the fields of antenna systems and measurements. One of the organizations held by IEEE APS, which have organized many conferences, symposiums and workshops until now, is IEEE International Conference on Antenna Measurements and Applications - IEEE CAMA. In the annual event, two of the papers submitted to the conference about antenna measurements and applications are awarded IEEE Ulrich L. Rohde Innovative Conference Paper Award.
