Roger A. Haken Best Student Paper Award
The Roger A. Haken Best Student Paper Award is awarded each year to the best student paper presented at IEDM, and is given at the IEDM conference in the following year. The award was created in memory of Roger A. Haken who served on the IEDM Executive Committee for several years including as technical program vice chair in 1990 when he passed away in June of that year.
Roger Haken was a Texas Instruments Senior Fellow & Research Manager of Submicron CMOS/BiCMOS at the TI Semiconductor Process and Design Center. Before joining Texas Instruments, he was with the General Electric Company at the Hurst research Center, London. He received the Higher National Diploma in electrical and electronic engineering from Southampton College of Technology, Hampshire, England, in 1971 and the MS and PhD degrees in electronics from the University of Southampton in 1972 and in 1975, respectively. He held 43 patents and was author or co-author of over 30 technical publications.
