Elsevier, the publisher of the journal Ultrasonics , has sponsored the RWB Stephens Prizes. This competition honors the memory of Professor RWB Stephens (1902-1990) who was active in starting the Ultrasonics International (UI) conferences and who contributed greatly to their success. During his lifetime he was recognized as a great teacher who taught and inspired generations of students in acoustics and ultrasonics. Cash prizes have been awarded to the presenters of the most outstanding papers (oral or poster) presented at the 2015 ICU by a student or recent graduate as determined by a panel of distinguished judges covering a broad diversity of ultrasonics topics. The chair of the Prize Committee was Wolfgang Sachse of Cornell University who is actively engaged with the ICU conferences as well as the journal Ultrasonics.
