It is with great pleasure that we welcome six new members to one of the world’s most highly esteemed societies, that of being a Bell Labs Fellow. The 2013 Bell Labs Fellows were honored during an award ceremony on November 4, 2013 in Paris. It was attended by Michel Combes, members of Alcatel-Lucent’s Executive Committee, senior Bell Labs and Business Lines executives, and the honorees’ nominators and colleagues.

The Bell Labs Fellows Award is an important tradition for the Alcatel-Lucent technical community to reward distinguished performance by a scientist or engineer as well as to encourage all members of the technical community to strive toward the same level of distinction. 

In his congratulatory remarks, Michel emphasized the importance of innovation and thanked the new group of Bell Labs Fellows for their contribution to Alcatel-Lucent technical innovation and industry leadership.
