Rouskas Named IEEE Distinguished Lecturer

Dr. George Rouskas, professor of computer science at NC State University, has been named an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer for 2010 and 2011.


The Distinguished Lecturer Program provides a means for IEEE Chapters and other organizations to identify and arrange lectures by renowned authorities on IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) topics.  Distinguished Lectures, which are considered one of the most popular benefits to chapters, are provided as a service to local IEEE chapters, and provide the IEEE’s grassroots membership access to a wide array of subjects and experts.


As part of the overall program, all lectures are recorded and become part of the Online Distinguished Lecturers Program.  This is an important aspect of the Program because these recordings have the potential of being “virtual Distinguished Lecturer Tours” for chapters unable to organize “in person” tours.


Rouskas was selected on the following evaluation criteria:  strength of his references in the nominations process, his oratorical reputation, and his expertise of the subject matter.  His appointment is for two years and is renewable for an additional term based upon chapter evaluations and the number of tours in which he participates.
