Lecturing-baton passed from Mats to Vincent
Professor Buon Kiong Lau (Vincent) from EIT has been appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer (DL) of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) for the three-year term 2017-2019. Every year, a number of people who are eminent in the Society's field of interest, are selected to be DLs. This year, Vincent was selected together with two other experts: Prof Karu Esselle and Prof Carey M. Rappaport. DLs are financially supported to visit active so called AP-S Chapters around the world and give talks on topics of interest and importance to the AP community.
EITs other professor within this field, Mats Gustafsson, has been a DL between 2013-2015, and Vincents appointment can be seen as a continuation of our department’s involvement in this respected scientific role. Vince is passing on the baton to Mats.
A short discussion with Mats gives the following picture of what IEEE distinguished lecturing is all about.
