Congratulations to Professor Wenping Wang for receiving the John A Gregory Memorial Award in appreciation for his outstanding contributions in Geometric Modelling. This award is currently the highest award in the field of Geometric Design, and is presented to one or more individuals for Fundamental Contributions to the Field of Geometric Modelling. The laureates are chosen by a committee operating privately and announced once every three years. Impact on the field over one's lifetime is an important criterion in making selections for this award.
