Professor Junil Choi Receives Stephen O. Rice Prize
< Professor Junil Choi (second from the left) > Professor Junil Choi from the School of Electrical Engineering received the Stephen O. Rice Prize at the Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) hosted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in Hawaii on December 10, 2019. The Stephen O. Rice Prize is awarded to only one paper of exceptional merit every year. The IEEE Communications Society evaluates all papers published in the IEEE Transactions on Communications journal within the last three years, and marks each paper by aggregating its scores on originality, the number of citations, impact, and peer evaluation. Professor Choi won the prize for his research on one-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for multiuser massive multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems published in 2016. In his paper, Professor Choi proposed a technology that can drastically reduce the power consumption of the multiuser massive MIMO antenna systems, which are the core technology for 5G and future wireless communication. Professor Choi’s paper has been cited more than 230 times in various academic journals and conference papers since its publication, and multiple follow-up studies are actively ongoing. In 2015, Professor Choi received the IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Award, an award equals to the Stephen O. Rice Prize. He was also selected as the winner of the 15th Haedong Young Engineering Researcher Award presented by the Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences (KICS) on December 6, 2019 for his outstanding academic achievements, including 34 international journal publications and 26 US patent registrations.

Qualcomm Innovation Award Recognizes 20 KAIST Students
The award provides research fellowships, worth of USD 100,000, to 20 KAIST graduate students With an audience of 100 people present, KAIST held a ceremony for the Qualcomm Innovation Award 2015 at the Information Technology Convergence building on campus on March 12, 2015. The Qualcomm Innovation Award, established in 2010, is a fellowship that supports innovative science and engineering master’s and doctoral students at KAIST. Qualcomm donated USD 100,000 to KAIST, stipulating that it be used to foster a creative research environment for graduate students. To select the recipients, KAIST formed an award committee chaired by Professor Soo-Young Lee of the Department of Electrical Engineering and accepted research proposals until late January. The award committee first selected 37 proposals from 75 papers submitted and then chose the final 20 research proposals on March 12, 2015 after presentation evaluations. The presentations had to show promise of innovation and creativity; prospective influence on wireless communications and mobile industry; and the prospect of being implemented. Each recipient received a USD 4,500 research fellowship along with an opportunity to present their research findings at a workshop where Qualcomm engineers and other distinguished individuals of the industry will attend. Previously, Qualcomm has donated research fellowships to KAIST graduate students in 2011 and 2013.
