ECE Ph.D. candidate George Theodorakopoulos and his advisor, Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR), were selected as winners of the 2007 IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Leonard G. Abraham Prize in Communication Systems for their paper: "On Trust Models and Trust Evaluation Metrics for Ad Hoc Networks," IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, Vol. 24, No. 2, pp. 318-328, Feb. 2006.

Their award will be announced at the International Conference on Communications (ICC2007) in Glasgow, Scotland during the Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 25. Theodorakopoulos and Baras will attend as ComSoc guests and receive their award and honorarium in person.

The Abraham Prize is awarded annually for the best paper in communications systems, published in the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications in the previous calendar year. The selection is based on quality, originality, utility, timeliness, clarity of presentation, after wide solicitation of nominations by the Journal Editor-in-Chief from the Editorial Board, guest editors, and readership.

George Theodorakopoulos graduates in May 2007 with his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering. In the fall he will join the Communications Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) as postdoctoral Research Fellow with Professor Jean Yves LeBoudec, who was an ISR Distinguished Lecturer this year.
