Madni received ASME Honorary Membership, which is awarded for a lifetime of service to engineering or related fields. This achievement is described as “distinguished service that contributes significantly to the attainment of the goals of the engineering profession.” Honorary Membership was first awarded in 1880, the founding year of the society.
Madni is a researcher, educator, entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the recipient of the 2023 NAE Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education. A Life Member of the IEEE, he also received the prestigious 2023 IEEE Simon Ramo Medal for exceptional achievements in systems engineering and systems science. A fellow of ten professional engineering and science societies, he is the author of several books, including “Transdisciplinary Systems Engineering: Exploiting Convergence in a Hyperconnected World.” He is the co-editor in chief of the “Handbook of Model Based Systems Engineering” with Norm Augustine. He is also the co-author of the recently published “Deep Learning Networks: Design, Development and Deployment.”
InterPACK is a systems-focused conference covering topics on heterogeneous integration, servers of the future, edge and cloud computing, internet of things, additive printed electronics, flexible and wearable electronics, photonics and optics, power electronics, energy conversion and storage, and autonomous, hybrid and electric vehicles. The international nature of the meeting has been highly beneficial in promoting global interactions between industry, academia, research institutions, funding agencies, start-ups and entrepreneurs.
