EURASIP Fellows 2012
In 2007, the EURASIP Board of Directors initiated a “Fellowship Programme”, to recognize outstanding achievements of its members and volunteers. Each year, a select group of signal processing researchers are elevated to “EURASIP Fellow”, the Association's most prestigious honor.

It is my pleasure to announce the result of the 2012 selection process. In recognition of their many important contributions to the field of signal processing, the EURASIP Board of Directors elevates the following individuals to “EURASIP Fellow 2012”:

Prof. Jaakko Astola, Tampere University of Technology, Finland
Prof. Ingrid Daubechies, Duke University, USA
Prof. Jelena Kovačević, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
Prof. Eric Moulines, Institut Télécom / Télécom ParisTech (ENST), France

I wish to congratulate our new EURASIP Fellows on this most important achievement. The Fellowship Awards will be presented at EUSIPCO-2012, to be held in Bucharest, Romania, August 27-31, 2012.
