It was reported that in the case of Prof. Azarm the vote of the H&A committee members for granting this award to him was unanimous.
The citation for the award will read: "For his sustained and meritorious contributions to research in Design Automation, specifically in computational design optimization and engineering design decision making."
The award will be given to Professor Azarm during a conference dinner of the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC) which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, during September 4-7, 2007.
