EURASIP Awards: 1st Call Society Award Nominations

Each year, EURASIP recognizes technical and professional achievements through its celebrated EURASIP Awards Program. As part of the organization’s overall mission to advance signal processing as a science and a profession, EURASIP’s Board of Directors annually evaluates the contributions of candidates for various awards that span a spectrum of professional and technological accomplishments.

EURASIP Members are invited to nominate candidates for EURASIP Society Awards that fall into the following categories:

  • Meritorious Service Award
  • Group Technical Achievement Award
  • Technical Achievement Award
  • Athanasios Papoulis Award.
For additional information on the scope and criteria for these awards, please visit the EURASIP website at The website also gives details of the nomination process and copies of the nomination forms can be downloaded. A listing of previous award recipients with their award citations is also available on the EURASIP Awards webpage.
