Thanks to for supporting this award with their new ZedBoard.Michal Servit has been General Chair of FPL94 at Prague, the largest FPL ever held to that time. He has been an associate professor at EE dept. of the University of Prague (for his CV see http://www.fpl.uni-kl.de/FPL/mservit.html ). Michal Servit has attended all FPLs, and all the time he served as a reviewer, member of the program committee, and the steering committee of FPL, until the message reached us, that he did not survive a heart attack during vacations in Austria, December 5, 1997. The community misses with him as a cooperative and highly competent friend full of good ideas. He has been an important part of the FPL organization. The first Michael Servit Memorial Award has been initially organized by Stephen Guccione triggered by an idea from John Schewel.
