The Ceremony's theme, emphasizing persistence, is in some discord with the way scientific and technical breakthroughs are often described in popular media. Often such breakthroughs are portrayed as isolated bursts of creativity and innovation, reflecting momentary inspiration or mysterious flashes of luck. Yet, while sparks of creativity do occur, and some great discoveries and inventions can perhaps be attributed to them, the reality is that progress is more often the result of a much more complicated and laborious process. This process involves the grad- ual building of experimental and theoretical foundations; contributions from many observers, experimenters and scholars; and long debates on hypotheses and causations. When a new invention finally emerges from this process, bright and fresh, it often appears self evident even obvious. It seldom is. The path that led to discoveries such as the ones we honor in 2011 is frequently quite complicat- ed. Progress happens from time to time, but so do dead ends, wrong directions and negative results. Moreover, the individuals who are representing the spectacular achievements we cel- ebrate often drew on previous studies and truly "stand on the shoulders of giants." They are brilliant thinkers and original inventors in their own right but they also had the benefit of earlier studies, guidance by teachers and mentors, institutional support, students, colleagues, and col- laborators. We celebrate all of them, as well as the nominators and benefactors of the medals and awards the generous donors who recognized the importance of acknowledging properly the intellect and gifts of the leaders of our profession. They all play an important part in making the IEEE Awards Program one of the highest forms of recognition in our community. We hope that highlighting the accomplishments of the 2011 recipients will inspire all of us especially younger professionals to re-dedicate ourselves to the profession, and to recognize how large the potential still is to use our education, talents and experience to advance technology for humanity.

Since 1950, only 125 individuals have been selected to receive this honor. In September 2010, IEEE and HKN merged to form IEEE Eta Kappa Nu. For a full listing of Eminent Members, visit the website, www.hkn.org 4 People living in remote areas of the world have limited access to medical care. Recent advances in broadband communication, combined with multimedia compression methods, convinced the PoaS@ude team that telemedicine solutions to this problem were possible. The PoaS@ude Telemedicine Project aimed to develop a real-time eHealth solution and promotion of public prevention programs for remote areas. The primary focus was on obstetric ultrasonography for prenatal care. The concepts were applied in remote districts of Porto Alegre, Southern Brazil, remote cities of the Amazon region, and in Northern Brazil, where a hospital is a 12- to 24-hour boat ride away. The team conceived a collaborative tele-ultrasound system over a hybrid network, which included a PLC (Power Line) and a satellite, based on multimedia data, called VideoMed. Using this, a medical specialist could assist, guide, and interact in real time with a remote doctor. The signal is coded in MPEG-4 and transmitted live. The specialist would analyze and communicate by audio and through a pointer, giving procedural instructions to the remote doctor showing, for example, a hand in picture-in- picture (PIP) form. The benefits of PoaS@ude were two-fold: increased prenatal exams and early diagnosis of problems for pregnancy patients and increased training and contact with specialists for remote doctors. Leah Jamieson is the John A. Edwardson Dean of Engineering at Purdue University, Ransburg Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Dr. Mittra specializes in the design of electromagnetic systems such as radars, satellite antennas, communication systems, microwave and millimeter wave integrated circuits and instruments for remote sensing and geophysical prospecting. His role in the design of these systems is primarily in the devel- opment of special-purpose computer programs and algorithms that are capable of solving problems that are well beyond the reach of commercially available computer codes. He has trans- ferred his expertise to graduate and postdoctoral students through innovative classroom instruction at the University of Illinois and Pennsylvania State University and with important publications and popular short courses. Dr. Mittra has graduated over 100 Ph.D. students and has mentored over 60 postdoctor- ates and visiting scholars who have specialized in the areas of computational electromagnetics, antennas, sensing, metamate- rials, integrated circuits and electronic packaging. He has published over 1,000 technical papers and more than 30 books or book chapters related to electromagnetics. Dr. Mittra has directed short courses on pioneering electromagnetics topics held at universities around the world and in-house at many companies, extending the reach of his knowledge beyond his classroom. He has attracted the best and brightest to study under him, and his students' thesis work has often transferred to industry with lasting impact, providing more efficient and cost- effective design solutions. An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Mittra is currently director of the Electromagnetic Communication Lab at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, and has a part-time appointment as a Distinguished Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
