EuCAP 2018 Best Paper Awards and ESoA-EuCAP Best Student Paper Awards

The EuCAP 2018 Best Paper Awards have been created to contribute to the recognition of scientific quality of research and engineering in four thematic domains:

  • Electromagnetics and Antenna Theory
  • Antenna Design and Applications
  • Propagation
  • Measurement

The Best Student Paper Awards are not related to a specific thematic domain.

Awards Committee

The Awards have been chaired by Prof. Stefano Maci and Zhipeng Wu and the juries, constituted by three distinguished researchers in the corresponding fields, are the following:

  • Electromagnetics and Antenna Theory

A. Neto 


J. Mosig 

  • Antenna Design and Application

C. Balanis

M. Ando

Y Vardaxoglou

  • Propagation

W. Wiesbeck

C. Oestgest 

Thomas Kuerner

  • Measurement

Le Coq  (UR1, Fr)

L. Foged

M. Havrilla

  • Best student papers

Lee Ford

Eva Rajo

A Capozzoli


For each of the 5 juries, five finalists are selected on the basis of the reviewers score and their comments.

Independently from their participation in their normal (oral or poster) session, the authors of the selected papers are requested to present their work in a special poster session dedicated to the Awards. This session will take place on Thursday afternoon, 12 April, 2018.

The selection of the Best Paper Award in each category will result from the evaluation by each jury of the combined quality of the paper and of the poster presentation. For the Best Student Paper competition, there may be up to two Awards if the quality is sufficient, provided they cover different topical areas among antennas, propagation and measurements.

All awards will be distributed during the closing ceremony on Friday noon, 13 April 2018.


An awardee in a category cannot be from the same institution or be co-author of a paper with one of the two awards chairs or with any of the members of his jury belonging to the same application category. A student can choose to apply to either or both of a thematic award or the best student papers awards. However, this is not recommended unless he obtained exceptional quality results. In any case, a candidate cannot receive more than one award.
