The Aldert van der Ziel Award is given for distinguished educational and research contributions to the field of electronic devices and materials. Past recipients of this prestigious award include Arthur Milnes, Lester Eastman, Herbert Kroemer (Nobel Laureate Physics 2000), Michael Shur, Marvin White, and Jim Plummer. The 2005 winner will be announced at the banquet.
Each year, we recognize the excellent work of students with four ISDRS Best Student Poster and Best Student Presentation awards. Winners are judged by the program committee during the conference and announced at the end of the conference. Student authors are requested to indicate "Student Paper" in the upper right-hand corner of their submitted abstract in order to be considered for this award.
