EURASIP Awards: 2nd Call for Fellow Nominations
EURASIP Fellow nominations are invited with a deadline of October 31st, 2013.

The EURASIP fellowship programme recognizes outstanding achievements of its members and volunteers. Each year, a select group of up to four European 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 chair by e-mail. The nomination form can be downloaded from the EURASIP website via this link.

The deadline is October 31st of every year. The Board of Directors encourages you to share this information with your colleagues.
