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
  • Early Career 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.

Call for SAT member candidates
The main objective of the EURASIP Special Area Teams (SAT) is to facilitate the interaction and communication of EURASIP members in a specific scientific area, notably by sharing knowledge and visions, discussing trends, spreading information about innovations, creating ties, facilitating collaboration beyond EURASIP, and organizing meetings and events. There are currently 8 SAT in diverse technical areas, please see

Before the end of 2018, all SAT will organize elections for new SAT members with the goal of renewing its membership. New SAT members are elected by the current SAT members after proposal by a current SAT member for a term of 3 years, which may be renewed only once.

All signal processing experts who would like to be SAT member candidates for the next elections are kindly requested to contact the relevant SAT Chair, please see, who should provide the precise information for the next election process of that specific SAT. It is not a strong requirement that SAT member candidates are EURASIP members but this is much recommended.

Call for EURASIP National Representatives Candidates (NRs)
EURASIP L-Com is composed of National Representatives (NRs) and chaired by the Membership Development Director of EURASIP. The goals of L-Com are to coordinate and stimulate local EURASIP activities and to promote EURASIP at the national level. Please see EURASIP website for more information.

National Representatives are appointed by the EURASIP Board of Directors each year in December. Potential candidates can be nominated by any EURASIP member or self-nominated. The nomination process is to send a short biography by email to the Membership Development Director of EURASIP for more information.

The deadline for nominations to be received is November 30th each year. The term of appointment for National Representatives is 3 calendar years and can only be renewed once. Retiring NRs can be nominated again after a minimum of 1 year has elapsed since their retirement.

NRs from European countries are expected to participate at least every other year, in person, at the annual L-Com meeting held at EUSIPCO.
