2021 IEEE AP-S Harrington-Mittra Computational Electromagnetics Award goes to one of the Politecnico’s professors

29 September 2021

Prof. Roberto Graglia of the Department of Electronics and Communications-DET at the Politecnico has received the 2021 Harrington-Mittra Award in Computational Electromagnetics “For fundamental contributions to high-order Finite Methods in computational electromagnetics”, as written in the official motivation for the award.

This Achievement Award recognizes Prof. Graglia fundamental contributions to the theory and applications of integral equations; differential equations and asymptotic methods in electromagnetics; as well as his development of innovative numerical methods for antenna analysis and design, EM scattering and EM wave propagation analysis.

Roberto Graglia has been a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Politecnico since 1999. He has authored over 150 publications in international scientific journals and symposia proceedings. Since 1997, he has been a Member of the editorial board of “Electromagnetics” and has been an editor of multiple IEEE scientific journals and reviewer of many other international scientific journals. He served the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) for the triennial International Symposia on Electromagnetic Theory. Since 1999, he has been the General Chairperson of the International Conference on Electromagnetics in Advanced Applications (ICEAA), and, since 2011, he has been the General Chairperson of the IEEE-APS Topical Conference on Antennas and Propagation in Wireless Communications (IEEE-APWC). Prof. Graglia was the 2015 President of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S), serving for nine years in the IEEE AP-S Administrative Committee (2006-08; 2014-19). He is an IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer, and Fellow of the IEEE since 1998.

This very prestigious award was established in 2013 by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S) to recognize past technical accomplishments and future potential of an outstanding contributor to the area of Computational Electromagnetics (CEM). The award will be presented to Prof. Graglia at the IEEE AP-S flagship Symposium, to be held in December 2021 in Singapore.
