EECS Professor Jerzy Grzymala-Busse named one of the inaugural Fellows of the International Rough Set Society (IRSS)

Published on March 7th, 2016 by Victor Frost

In 2015 Professor Jerzy Grzymala-Busse named one of seventeen inaugural Fellows of the IRSS. The International Rough Set Society (IRSS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to scholarship in rough sets introduced during the early 1980s by Zdzislaw Pawlak. Principal purpose of IRSS is to promote the study and exchange of ideas concerned with rough set theory, foundations, methods, as well as their extensions and applications. Read more...

Blunt, Branicky Named IEEE Fellows

Published on January 14th, 2016 by Victor Frost

EECS Professor Shannon Blunt and School of Engineering Dean Michael Branicky were recently named IEEE Fellows. Less than 0.1 percent of voting members are selected each year for Fellow status. Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement. Blunt was recognized for “contributions to radar waveform diversity and design” that significantly impact current and future defense radar systems. Branicky was recognized for contributions to switched and hybrid control systems. Read more...
