Prof. Juan R. Mosig, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland.

Juan R. Mosig (S’76–M’87–SM’94–F’99) was born in Cádiz, Spain. He received the degree in electrical engineering from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain, in 1973, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1983. Since 1991, he has been a Professor with the Laboratory of Electromagnetics and Acoustics (LEMA), EPFL, and has been its Director since 2000. He has held scientific appointments with the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, USA; the Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA; the University of Colorado at Boulder, CO, USA; University of Rennes, Rennes, France; University of Nice, Nice, France; and the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark. He has authored four chapters in books on microstrip antennas and circuits and over 170 reviewed papers. His research interests include electromagnetic theory, numerical methods, and planar antennas. Dr. Mosig has been the Swiss Delegate for European COST Antenna Actions since 1985 and the Chair for the two last Actions 284 and IC0603 ASSIST from 2003 to 2011. From 2004 to 2007, he was Vice-Coordinator of the FP6 Network of Excellence ACE, that enabled the EuCAP Conference series. He has also served as Member of the Board in the Coordination Actions ARTIC (FP6) and CARE (FP7) and Transnational Delegate in the IEEE APS AdCom. He is a Founding Member and Chair of the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP) and also chairs the EuCAP Conferences series and its Steering Committee. He also founded (2006) and conducted the series of INTELECT International Workshops on Computational Electromagnetics. He was the recipient of the 2015 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award.

David R. Jackson (F’99) was born in St. Louis, MO, USA, in 1957. He received the B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. degrees from the University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA, in 1979 and 1981, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA, in 1985. He was an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA, from 1985 to 1991, where he was also an Associate Professor from 1991 to 1998, and has been a Professor since 1998. His current research interests include microstrip antennas and circuits, leaky-wave antennas, leakage and radiation effects in microwave integrated circuits, periodic structures, and electromagnetic compatibility and interference. Dr. Jackson is currently the Chair of the United States National Committee for the International Union of Radio Science (USNC-URSI). He is on the Education Committee of the Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. He has been the Chair of the Distinguished Lecturer Committee of the IEEE AP-S, the Chair of the Transnational Committee of the IEEE AP-S, the Chair of the Chapter Activities Committee of the AP-S, a Distinguished Lecturer in the AP-S, a member of the AdCom for the AP-S, and an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. He served as the Chair of the Microwave Field Theory Technical Committee-15. He has also served as the Chair of Commission B of USNC-URSI and as the Secretary of this Commission. He served as an Associate Editor of the journal Radio Science and the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer Aided Engineering.

Engineering Sciences              

F. Javier García de Abajo obtained his PhD in condensed matter theory from the University of the Basque Country (Spain) in 1993. After spending three years in Berkeley National Lab., he became staff scientist at CSIC (Spain) and he was promoted to Research Professor in 2008. He is currently leading the Nanophotonics Theory group at ICFO. He has worked in atomic collisions, surface cience, electron microscope spectroscopies, plasmonics, and theoretical nanophotonics. He has coauthored over 300 papers that have accumulated 17,800+ citations (h index of 67; WoK data, Jan. 2017, ). He is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America. Javier García de Abajo's research program on the theory nanoscale photonics ranges from optical characterization with electron-microscope spectroscopies to studies of ultrasensitive single-molecule detection, quantum aspects of light-matter interaction, excitation and characterization of plasmons by electron beams, plasmonic metamaterials, quantum friction, radiative transfer and coherent control, and graphene plasmonics. These topics cover a broad spectrum of research in nanophotonics. This theoretical effort encompasses classical and quantum methods, both analytical and numerical, which are the basis to understand and propose new phenomena with application to biosensing and quantum plasmonics.
