Professor Jay Kuo, MCL Director, received the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society John Choma Education Award in the dinner banquet of the Asia Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems (APCCAS) held in Jeju, Korea, on October 27. It was awarded by the President of the CAS Society, Professor Franco Maloberti (see the photos). Professor Kuo was cited “for excellence in inspirational guidance of graduate students and curriculum development in the field of multimedia technologies and systems.”

“This award has a special meaning to me,” said Professor Kuo, “since Professor John Choma was my colleague in the same Department at the USC. Professor Choma served as an excellent role model for all educators for his dedication and care to his students. I do miss him a lot.”
