The IEEE Computer Society presented its 2011 W. Wallace McDowell Award to Ian F. Akyildiz for contributions to wireless sensor network architectures and communications protocols. The W. Wallace McDowell Award honors the outstanding recent theoretical, design, educational, practical, innovative contributions within the computing field. Dr. Akyildiz accepted his award at the Computer Society's 25 May 2011 awards ceremony in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Ian F. Akyildiz is currently the Ken Byers Chair Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, and the director of the Broadband and Wireless Networking Laboratory. His research and survey papers has been responsible for transforming wireless sensor networking from an infancy phase into one of the most active research areas in telecommunication networks. His 2002 paper "A Survey on Wireless Sensor Networks" is still a key publication that every researcher reads on first entering the field of wireless sensor networks research.
