Enric Trillas receives the international Kampé de Fériet Award

02.07.2008
Three Nobel Prize Laureates have received this prestigious award before.

The scientific researcher of the European Centre for Soft Computing (Spain), Enric Trillas (Barcelona 1940), has won the prestigious Kampé de Fériet Award 2008. The award was presented to him during the International Congress "Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge Based Systems", which took place in Malaga (Spain) from the 23rd to the 27th of June.

The Kampé de Fériet Award was created in 1992 and, since then, awards scientists who have exceptionally contributed “to the field of information processing and management of uncertainty”, every two years. Among the previous recipients are Ilya Prigogine (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1977), Kenneth Arrow (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 1972) y Daniel Kahneman (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 2002).

Enric Trillas has been Professor at UPM University (Madrid) and member of several International scientific committees, as well as director of some Spanish public institutions, such as the Spanish National Research Council (1984-1988) and the National Institute for Aerospace and Technology (1989-1995) among others.

Professor Trillas was the pioneer of Fuzzy Logic in Spain and is internationally well known. In fact the European Pioneer Award was presented to him by the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technologies in 1999 and the Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award by IEEE in 2005. During the last year Enric Trillas has been laureate with other important prizes, such as the Medal of the Polish Academy of Science, by Professor Janusz Kacprzyk.

Currently, Enric Trillas is the co-head of a research unit at the European Centre of Soft Computing, an advanced research and development centre in intelligent systems.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
