Bob Alden (EIC Sterling Medal) retired from McMaster University
in 2001 as Professor Emeritus. Bob is being recognized for his concept,
planning and implementation of a strategy that culminated in creating
IEEE Canada as a Member Society of the EIC while retaining its
relationship within IEEE as Region 7; and for continuing with the
development of IEEE Canada by implementing major improvements to its
website, a major awards program and integration with the IEEE Canadian
Om Malik (IEEE Canada President) has been doing volunteer work
for IEEE for over 35 years at the Section, Council, Region and IEEE
corporate level for over 35 years. University of Calgary Professor Om P.
Malik has done pioneering work in the development of adaptive and
artificial intelligence based controllers for application in electric
power systems over the past thirty years. After extensive testing in the
laboratory and in actual power systems, these controllers are now
employed on large generating units.
