EURASIP Publications


EURASIP is very pleased to announce that the EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech, and Music Processing as well as the EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing have both been accepted for coverage in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). As a result of these two journals being covered in the SCIE, they will each be given an Impact Factor in an upcoming edition of the Journal Citation Report.

The EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech, and Music Processing was launched in 2005 under the editorial leadership of Professor Douglas O’Shaughnessy, and over the past few years has published many strong articles both in Special Issues as well as Regular Issues. The EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing was launched in early 2006 under the editorial leadership of Professor Jean-Luc Dugelay, and already it has published nearly 200 articles, including more than a dozen successful Special Issues.

Looking ahead, it is clear that there is still great room for these journals to develop, and we all hope that they will continue to flourish in the years to come. Hindawi and EURASIP would like to take this opportunity to thank those authors, editors, and reviewers who have contributed their efforts in order to make the success of these journals possible.

A new Editor-in-Chief for
Since 1st August 2010

Elsevier and EURASIP would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Murat TEKALP, the past Editor in Chief, for his remarkable work for the journal, and to introduce Frédéric DUFAUX, the new editor in Chief, to all readers of the EURASIP’s newsletter.

Professor Murat Tekalp served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier/EURASIP Journal Signal Processing: Image Communication from 1999 until his retirement from the post in 2010. Indeed he was only the second Editor-in-Chief of the journal having taken over from Leonardo Chiariglione and he is also the longest serving Editor to date. It is sometimes said that being the second Editor-in-Chief of a journal is the most difficult role - the journal is launched and it is up to the second Editor to continue the work of the first. Murat Tekalp took on this challenge and during his stewardship the journal maintained Leonardo Chiariglione's original vision that it should publish novel research before it became obsolete whilst always striving to maintain the quality of research that would make the journal interesting to readers.

In recognition of his contribution to Signal Processing: Image Communication over his tenure Murat Tekalp was made an Honorary Editor on his retirement from the post.

Prof. Muart TEKALP is a Fellow of IEEE (2003), a member of Turkish Academy of Sciences (2007), and a member of Academia Europaea (2010). He has been on the Editorial Board of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. Signal Processing and IEEE Trans. Image Processing. He has been the General Chair of IEEE ICIP-2002, and chaired IEEE Technical Committee on Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing. He was also a Founding member of IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Signal Processing. Prof. Tekalp has authored the textbook Digital Video Processing (Prentice Hall, 1995). He is a National Expert for Turkey to the European Commission, and a member of the ERC Advanced Grant Panel. Prof. Tekalp is currently the Dean of Engineering at Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Dr. Frédéric Dufauxis a CNRS Research Director at Telecom ParisTech. Frederic received the M.Sc. in physics and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1990 and 1994 respectively. He has over 20 years of experience in research, holding various positions throughout the years at EPFL, MIT, Digital Equipment, Compaq, Genimedia and Emitall Surveillance. Frederic has been involved in the standardization of digital video and imaging technologies for more than 15 years, participating both in the MPEG and JPEG committees. He is currently co-chairman of JPEG 2000 over wireless (JPWL) and co-chairman of JPSearch. He is the recipient of two ISO awards for these contributions. His research interests include image and video coding, distributed video coding, 3D video, visual quality assessment, video surveillance, privacy protection, image and video analysis, multimedia content search and retrieval, video transmission over wireless network. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 research publications and holds 17 patents issued or pending.
