Javier Goz√°lvez elected executive vicepresident of the IEEE VTS international society

30-03-15-Javier Gozalvez

Javier Gozálvez has been elected as executive vicepresident of the international scientific society IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (IEEE VTS). Since January 2011 Dr. Gozálvez is member of the Board of Governors of this society.

The IEEE VTS society is part of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE, the greatest professional association in ht eworld in the field of new technologies, with more than  395.000 members in more than 160 countries, and with 38 scientific and technical societies in different sectors like telecomunicacions, electronics, informatics, aeronautics, robotics or photonics.

The IEEE VTS society is related to technical activities in the field of mibile and wireless communications, transportaion intelligent systems, and automobile alectronics. The name of the society origins in Detroit in 1949, when american engineers created a proffessional group centered on vehicular radiocomunications (the first mobile communication systems were installed in the Detroit police vehicles).

On th eother hand, Dr. Goz√°lvez received the accessit to the prize ‚ÄúJuan L√≥pez de Pe√Īalver‚ÄĚ, from the Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain (Real Academia de Ingenier√≠a). The prize recognizes researchers and engineers younger than 40 that have done relevant innovations, profdessional contributions or singular works in any field of the spanish engineering.
