EURASIP Awards: 1st Call Fellow Nominations

EURASIP Fellow nominations are invited with a deadline of October 31, 2018.

The EURASIP fellowship programme recognizes outstanding achievements of its members and volunteers. Each year, a select group of up to four signal processing researchers are elevated to EURASIP Fellow, the Association's most prestigious honour. Fellowships are awarded with a citation of the form “for contributions to …”, i.e. referring to a major long-term contribution to a technical field.

How to Submit Nominations

Any EURASIP member can nominate a colleague to be elevated to Fellow grade. Nominations should be submitted to the EURASIP Awards Director by e-mail (berberid@ceid.upatras.gr).

The nomination form can be downloaded from the EURASIP website at http://www.eurasip.org/fellows/Fellowship-Nomination-Form_Final.doc.
The deadline is October 31st of every year.

The Board of Directors encourages you to share this information with your colleagues.

Call for Proposals for the 30th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2022)
EURASIP invites proposals from potential organisers for the 30th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2022) to be held in late August/early September 2022. EUSIPCO is sponsored by the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), founded on September 1, 1978 to “improve communication between groups and individuals that work within the multidisciplinary, fast-growing field of Signal Processing in Europe and elsewhere, and to exchange and disseminate information in the field all over the world”.

EUSIPCO is a learned and professional platform for dissemination and discussion of all aspects of signal processing. It features plenaries, tutorials, lectures and poster sessions, as well as an exhibition, and can host additional satellite events.

Proposals should include the following preliminary information:
  • Proposed dates in 2022;
  • Organizing committee members, including biographic information;
  • A budget, which includes anticipated financial and in-kind support;
  • Information about the location and what it has to offer.

  • Proposals are warmly invited and should be submitted to the EURASIP Director for Conferences and Workshops (Patrick Naylor, p.naylor@imperial.ac.uk).
