Professor Amaratunga was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2004. In 2007 he was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering Silver Medal ‘for outstanding personal contributions to British engineering resulting in commercial success’.
Distinguished Professor at Shinshu University,
Director of Endo Special Laboratory at The Institute of Carbon Science and Technology,
Research Leader for Global Aqua Innovation Center, Shinshu University
Professor Morinobu Endo studied electrical engineering at Shinshu University in Nagano, Japan, and obtained Ph.D. in Engineering in 1978 from Nagoya University. In his doctor thesis, he developed the synthesis method of carbon nanotubes, and showed a tubular structure of carbon for the first time in 1976. In 1990, he became a professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Shinshu University. His present posts are a Distinguished Professor of Shinshu University, the Director of Endo Special Laboratory at The Institute of Carbon Science and Technology and Research Leader for Global Aqua Innovation Center, Shinshu University. His current interests are science and technology of nanocarbons such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and the development of high-performance energy storage devices (lithium ion battery, electric double layer capacitor and fuel cell) based on the advanced “nanocarbons”.
Professor at the Institute for Microelectronics,
Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien), Austria
Professor Siegfried Selberherr was born in Klosterneuburg, Austria, in 1955. He received the degree of Diplomingenieur in electrical engineering and the doctoral degree in technical sciences from the Technische Universität Wien in 1978 and 1981, respectively. Dr. Selberherr has been holding the venia docendi on computer-aided design since 1984. Since 1988 he has been the Chair Professor of the Institut für Mikroelektronik. From 1998 to 2005 he served as Dean of the Fakultät für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik. Prof. Selberherr published more than 400 papers in journals and books, where more than 100 appeared in Transactions of the IEEE. He and his research teams achieved more than 1100 articles in conference proceedings of which more than 180 have been with an invited talk. Prof. Selberherr authored two books and co-edited more than 45 volumes, and he supervised, so far, more than 100 dissertations. His current research interests are modeling and simulation of problems for microelectronics engineering. Prof. Selberherr is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the Academia Europaea, a Fellow of the European Academy of Science and Arts, and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Electron Devices Society.
