2nd Call Fellow Nominations (deadline Oct 31)

EURASIP Fellow nominations are invited with a deadline of October 31, 2018.

The EURASIP fellowship programme recognizes outstanding achievements of its members and volunteers. Each year, a select group of up to four 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 Director by e-mail (

The nomination form can be downloaded from the EURASIP website at
The deadline is October 31st of every year.

The Board of Directors encourages you to share this information with your colleagues.

EURASIP Awards: Announcement 2018 Best PhD Awards
EURASIP, the European Signal Processing Association (, created and maintains a database of PhD theses at, which is one of the World's largest in the area of signal processing. The database also keeps track of monthly downloads.

Every year a Committee of experts, nominated by the EURASIP BoD, selects up to three theses related to different areas of signal processing to be awarded. The selection process is based on the evaluation of the impact of the theses, their subsequent journal and conference publications and related citations received, on the download statistics as well as on the review reports of independent reviewers.

The 2018 winners are:

Mojtaba Soltanalian, for the PhD thesis “Signal Design for Active Sensing and Communications ” (Uppsala University, Sweden, 2014) supervised by Petre Stoica.

Quoc Hien Ngo, for the PhD thesis “Massive MIMO: Fundamentals and System Designs ” (Linkoping University, Sweden, 2016) supervised by Erik G. Larsson.

On behalf of the EURASIP Board of Directors, we would like to congratulate the winners.
