The Golden AMPER 2013
The Golden AMPER competition – The RICE research team led by Ing. Pavel Turjanica, Ph.D. won one of the five chief prizes in the competition for the most useful exhibit at the AMPER Trade Fair held at the exhibition ground in Brno. The exhibit awarded by the expert committee was the modular control system REMCS, which is an outcome of RICE research and development lasting two years. The system is intended for partners from the industry sector operating in the field of transportation or power engineering, mainly for those who cannot afford to carry out the demanding and expensive development of a system exploiting cutting-edge technologies. RICE succeeded in the competition with 33 other exhibits by 30 exhibiting companies.
The reportage from AMPER 2013
A group of researchers led by Prof. Peroutka took part in the international conference IECON 2012, where they won a prize for the best paper in the section concerning power systems.
Appreciation expressed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
On 12th July 2012, the RICE Executive Director received a letter from Mr. Gordon W. Day, President of the professional association “The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers”, stating that a member of the RICE team, Doc. Ing. Radek Polanský, Ph.D. was awarded the honourable grade of “Senior Member” as an appreciation of his scientific accomplishments.
IEEE is an association of more than 461,000 professional electrical engineers and information scientists from about 150 countries in all continents. Of these members, only eight per cent have been awarded the status of “Senior Member”. The IEEE association is the publisher of more than 100 journal titles and a great many books (25% of the world’s professional literature dealing with electrical engineering and computer science originates from IEEE), organises conferences and supports the development of the above-mentioned fields. IEEE is geographically divided into ten regions which are further subdivided into sections. The Czech Republic comes under Region 8. In order to meet the needs of Czech and Slovak members of IEEE, the Czech-Slovak section of IEEE was established in 1992.
