EURASIP Board of Directors elections 2012
EURASIP is managed by the Board of Directors (BoD). EURASIP BoD elections are held every two years. The EURASIP Advisory Committee confirms the BoD election results and appointments. All elected BoD members serve four year terms.

On December 31st, 2012, three current BoD members are ending their term (Ana Perez-Neira, Abdelhak Zoubir, Marc Moonen). The biographies of the candidates that appear on the 2012 election ballot are available on the voting website.

An electronic procedure will be used to collect votes prior to the EURASIP General Assembly, which will be held during EUSIPCO 2012 at Bucharest, Romania, August 27–31. EURASIP members who have not voted electronically will receive a paper ballot at the EURASIP General Assembly. The results of the 2012 BoD Elections will be announced at the General Assembly.

Electronic voting starts on June 1st and ends on August 20th. To cast their votes, EURASIP members are invited to visit the voting page on the Membership Server.

Questions related to the voting procedure may be sent to
