Ktesibios Award



 


The MCA Ktesibios Award, first awarded in 2000, has been established to recognize exceptional contributions to theory, design, or practice in the areas of systems, control, or automation. These contributions should not only be outstanding, but also sustained over a long period of time. The recipient should have a demonstrated record of scientific and professional activities that have directly impacted countries in the Mediterranean region. The award is presented annually on recommendation of the MCA Awards Board and is a silver replica of a "Kantharos," an ancient drinking vessel (shown above).
