Enric Trillas receives the international Kampé de Fériet Award

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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
