Professor Isaak Mayergoyz has been selected to receive the Achievement Award of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Magnetics Society. This is the highest award of the Magnetics Society and is given to an outstanding member each year to honor his or her lifelong professional achievement, and to recognize scientific, technical and service contributions to the society. The Magnetics Society Achievement Award is presented annually at the IEEE International Magnetics Conference (INTERMAG) and consists of a diploma with a citation and a cash prize.

The proposed award citation is "For seminal contributions to analysis of electromagnetic fields and magnetization dynamics, hysteresis modeling, and semiconductor device simulation, and service to the IEEE Magnetics Society."

Prof. Mayergoyz has been a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Maryland for nearly 30 years. He was recently appointed The Alford L. Ward Professor in recognition of his sustained and influential work as a scholar and educator. Prof. Mayergoyz's research interests include plasmon resonances in metallic and semiconductor nanoparticles; spin polarized current induced nonlinear magnetization dynamics; analysis of fluctuations in semiconductor nanodevices; stochastic analysis of systems with hysteresis; drive independent recovery and forensics of hard disk data; computational electromagnetics; and power engineering.

He has authored and coauthored 11 books and over 350 scientific papers. He is a Fellow of IEEE (1988), Visiting Research Fellow of GE Research and Development Center (1988), Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Magnetics Society (1994), Distinguished Scholar-Teacher of University of Maryland, College Park (1994) and a recipient of Outstanding Teacher Award of College of Engineering (1987). He has served on numerous IEEE committees, editorial boards of scientific journals and as the Editor of Academic Press-Elsevier Electromagnetism Series.
