2022: MMP awarded to team led by Nitish Thakor at Johns Hopkins University, and MECA awarded to Chang Gao at TU Delft
The Misha Mahowald Prize (MMP) recognizes outstanding research in neuromorphic engineering, worldwide. The Prize is named for the late Misha Mahowald, one of the most influential pioneers of the field of neuromorphic engineering. The award is considered annually.
The Mahowald Early Career Award (MECA) has been established for individual Master's, PhD, and early postdoctoral students. It is open for submissions year-round, and evaluated once per year.
Individuals or groups are invited to submit a description of their work for consideration by the jury of world-leading figures in the field.
The prize submission deadline is October 31 annually.
