Congratulations to the Newly Elected 2020 IEEE Fellows

"On behalf of the IEEE Communications Society, it gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest congratulations to our newly elected fellows," ComSoc President Khaled B. Letaief said. "They now join a truly distinguished roster of colleagues. I would like to thank our ComSoc Fellow Evaluation Committee for the time and work they put into the evaluation process. A special thanks goes to Robert Schober, the Chair of ComSoc Fellow Evaluation Committee, for his leadership and contributions."

Election to the grade of IEEE Fellow is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon our members by the Institute in recognition of their technical, educational, and leadership achievements. Only a select few IEEE members earn this prestigious honor.

Sixty IEEE Communications Society members were among those elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow for 2020.
