Professors Jim Ritcey and Karl Böhringer have been named IEEE Fellows effective January 1, 2011.

Karl's citation is "for contributions to microelectromechanical systems, parallel and distributed robotic manipulation, and self-assembly", while Jim's reads "for contributions to bit-interleaved coded modulation with iterative decoding".

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one- percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement. 321 individuals have been elevated to IEEE Fellow for 2011.

We would like to congratulate both of them!
