EURASIP Fellows - Call for Nominations
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 here.

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

EURASIP PhD Summer School in Radar Signal Processing
The first EURASIP PhD Summer School will be held on 8-12 September 2014 in Pisa (Italy) and will focus on Radar Signal Processing. The School aims to providing PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and young scientists with the unique opportunity to meet and learn from leading experts about the most advanced signal processing techniques applied in radar systems for remote sensing, target classification and surveillance.

The School will be held at the “Hotel Casale La Sterpaia”, located in the beautiful San Rossore Park, Pisa, Italy ( During the five-day program, eight senior researchers and industry representatives will give lectures on passive radars, SAR, cognitive radar systems, target recognition and tracking. Furthermore, one afternoon will be dedicated to the presentation of student’s research activities and another afternoon to the description of a project assignment.

More information can be found in the flyer of the summer school, and soon also on the summer school webpage.
