An Order for a distinguished scientist in the field of computer science and electronics
Professor Bogdan Wilamowski – a distinguished scientist in the areas of electronics and computer science, is the most recognized Polish scientist in the US in these areas. He collaborates with many scientific institutions in the US, Japan, and Europe. He has promoted the development of the collaboration of Polish and American scientific institutions. He received the title of full professor from the President of Poland in 1987. He was then the Director of the Institute of Electronics (1979-1981) and the Chair of the Solid State Electronics Department (1987-1989) at the Technical University of Gdansk. He was Professor at the University of Wyoming (1989-2000). From 2000 to 2003, he was Associate Director of Microelectronics Research and Telecommunication Institute at University of Idaho and he was Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and in Computer Science Department at the University of Idaho. Currently, he is Director of AMNSTC – Alabama Micro/Nano Science and Technology Center and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Auburn University. In the late 1960s he started cooperation with the Nishizawa Laboratory of Tohoku University, Japan. He is a member and chair for program committees of conferences organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). He was also the founder and Vice President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (2000-2004), and later the President of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (2004-2005).
Prof. Wilamowski is in the editorial boards of several scientific periodicals and the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE’s Transactions on Industrial Electronics – which is one of the largest engineering journals in the world. Professor Wilamowski is closely tied to the development of microelectronics and computer science – and finds himself among the world’s top researchers in this area. He works on the newest areas, such as nanotechnology, MEMS systems and computer intelligence. He continues to expand and develop relations among Polish and American scientists and organizes and encourages international scientific collaboration.
