Save the date - ACS Athens Alumni Achievement Awards Dinner on April 6, 2019

ACS Athens Alumni Achievement Awards

Dear ACS Athens Community Members:

It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2nd ACS Athens Alumni Achievement Awards Dinner that will take place on April 6, 2019.

Over the past decades ACS Athens alumni have exhibited great leadership with ethos, including serving humanity in all areas of society. We will continue to celebrate and recognize ACS Athens alumni leaders at the 2nd Global Achievement Awards event that will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 6, 2019.

The two awards that will be given to ACS Athens alumni will be:

  1. Lifetime Achievement Award – recognizing an alumnus (over 40) whose accomplishments in the public, private or non-profit sector have made an outstanding contribution to the community and serve as an example both professionally and ethically.
  2. Upcoming Young Leadership Award – recognizing an alumnus (aged 40 or under) who shows promise in his/her field by providing inspiration and leadership to students and other young alumni. The recipient has to have shown significant leadership either in their professional career and/or community, public or humanitarian service.

The Nominations Form and all relevant information about these two awards can be found at the ACS Athens Global site ( Nominations are accepted only through this site. If you have not yet signed up as a member of this site, please do so.

I encourage you to read the guidelines for this new initiative and to participate by nominating someone you believe has the qualities outlined above and should be considered for these two awards.

I believe that this awards initiative will become tradition for ACS Athens and a truly wonderful way for us to recognize our alumni as they leave our institution to go on to become successful citizens of the world with ethos.

Stefanos Gialamas, Ph.D.

Dr. Daniele C. Struppa bio President, Chapman University

Chapman University is pleased to announce Daniele C. Struppa, Ph.D. as its thirteenth president starting September 1, 2016. Previously, Dr. Struppa held the position of Chancellor at Chapman University for the last nine years.

Daniele C. Struppa, Ph.D., joined Chapman University in 2006 as provost, responsible for creating and implementing academic priorities for the University and for the allocation of resources to support those priorities.  In 2007, with the addition of further leadership responsibilities, he was appointed as Chapman's first chancellor.

Dr. Struppa came to Chapman University from George Mason University, where he served as director of the Center for the Applications of Mathematics, as chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and as associate dean for graduate studies.  In 1997, he was selected dean of George Mason’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Prior to his tenure at George Mason, Dr. Struppa held positions at the University of Milano (Milan, Italy), the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy) and the University of Calabria (Calabria, Italy).

Dr. Struppa earned his laurea in mathematics from the University of Milan, Italy in 1977, and received his doctorate degree in mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1981.  In recognition of his work, he has been awarded the Bartolozzi Prize from the Italian Mathematical Union (1981), and the Matsumae Medal from the Matsumae International Foundation of Tokyo (1987).

In 2006, the BIO-IT Coalition (a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., and dedicated to the support of bioinformatics) established a new prize in Dr. Struppa’s honor — the "Professor Daniele Struppa Award" — which is designed to honor high school teachers in math, science and technology.

Dr. Struppa is the author of more than 200 refereed publications, and he is the editor of several volumes.  He has edited or co-authored more than ten books, including Bicomplex Holomorphic Functions (2015), Regular Functions of a Quaternionic Variable (2013), Noncommutative Functional Calculus: Theory and Applications of Slice Hyperholomorphic Functions (2011), Analysis of Dirac Systems and Computational Algebra (2004), Fundamentals of Algebraic Microlocal Analysis (1999), and The Fundamental Principle for Systems of Convolution Equations (1983).

While serving as chancellor, Dr. Struppa continued his scholarly research focusing on Fourier analysis and its applications to a variety of problems including the algebraic analysis of systems of differential equations, signal processing and pattern recognition.  Some of his recent work applies these ideas and methods to problems ranging from denoising to bio-contaminant protection to proteomics of cancerous cells.
