On Aug. 17, Prof. LI Erping from the Zhejiang University - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Institute and the Zhejiang University College of Information Science and Electronic Engineering received the 2021 Laurence G. Cumming Award for Outstanding Service at the 2021 Joint IEEE International Virtual Symposium on EMC+ SIPI. The award, established in 1979, is one of the two highest awards of the IEEE EMC Society to recognize the outstanding contributions and service to the EMC community and exceptional technical achievements. This marks the second time that Prof. Li has received the highest award from the EMC Society after winning the Richard R. Stoddard Award in 2015.
“I am extremely appreciative, and feel deeply honored to be recognized by the IEEE EMC Society,” said Prof. Li. “I will continue sparing no effort in supporting the EMC Society and place great value on the pursuit of new possibilities.”

Qiushi Chair Professor of Zhejiang University and a fellow of IEEE, Prof. Li is a leading expert in electrical modeling and design of micro/nano-scale integrated circuits, 3D electronic package integration, nano-plasmonic technology, and 5G communications. He authored or co-authored over 300 papers published in internationally renowned journals, and two books published by John-Wiley-IEEE Press and Cambridge University Press respectively. Lots of his research results have been applied to industry.
In addition to scientific research, Prof. Li has committed himself to the development of the academic community of electromagnetic compatibility. He founded the Asia-Pacific EMC Symposium (APEMC) in 2008. Today, APEMC, in close collaboration with the IEEE EMC Society, has become the most prestigious EMC symposium in the Asia Pacific region, enhancing EMC development in the Region.
The IEEE is the world's largest association of technical professionals, with more than 420,000 members in over 175 countries, dedicated to promoting the development and application of electrical and electronic technology in theory. The IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (EMC Society), established in 1957, dedicated to the development and distribution of information, tools and techniques for reducing electromagnetic interference.
