Two BEACONites receive awards from Web of Science for their publication records

We are very excited to congratulate two amazing researchers, Amir Gandomi and Kalyanmoy Deb for their recent awards from Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters, and owner of Web of Science.

Amir Gandomi was named a 2017 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher based on his publication record, publishing Highly Cited Papers defined as those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science. This list of researchers represent some of the world’s most influential minds as determined by a citation analysis of Web of Science data.

Kalyanmoy Deb was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his highly cited research contributions in a wonderful event organized by Clarivate Analytics attended by a large audience in New Delhi including other awardees, scientific advisers to Government of India, and many dignitaries from Indian universities and industries.

One of his papers published in 2002 passed 10,000 citations by Web of Science and is ranked 174 out of 45,602,967 journal and conference articles recorded by Web of Science from 1900 to 2017. Kalyanmoy is the first recipient of this award. Besides this award, the Citation Awards 2017 event also gave away Research Excellence Awards to individual researchers and institutions in India for their impacting contributions.

The award citation stated “Professor Deb is recognized for research on multi-objective optimization using evolutionary algorithms, which are capable of solving complex problems across a range of fields involving trade-offs between conflicting preferences. A 2002 paper, with more than 10,000 citations, ranks among the 200 most-cited papers recorded in the Web of Science, 1900-2017, and is by far the most influential paper ever produced by an Indian scientist, as reflected by citations.”
