2020 Membership Renewal
A welcome message to EUSIPCO-2019 and Seasonal School participants

EURASIP extends a warm welcome to all EUSIPCO-2019 participants and attendees of one of the 2019 EURASIP Seasonal Schools as 2020 members of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP). Your membership, which is valid through December 31, 2020, has been covered by your EUSIPCO-2019 or Seasonal School registration. We sincerely hope you will appreciate our Association's activities and initiatives.

EURASIP members enjoy a number of member benefits: EURASIP members receive EURASIP journals and selected books by Elsevier at discounted member prices, and enjoy registration fee discounts at a number of conferences that are organized in cooperation with EURASIP. In addition, EURASIP members receive a 10% discount on Open Access publication charges for their publications in EURASIP/SpringerOpen journals.

To learn more about our member benefits, upcoming conferences and other EURASIP news, please visit the EURASIP website. We would also like to take the opportunity to draw your attention to our e-Services with freely downloadable PhD Theses and Conference Proceedings (e.g., EUSIPCO proceedings), as well as to invite you to make PhD Theses from your institution available through our PhD Theses database.

To update your profile and contact information, please visit the EURASIP Membership Server or visit "Membership" at the EURASIP website. If you do not already have an account on the Membership Server you will first have to sign up and then click on the automatically generated link to apply your EUSIPCO-2019 or Seasonal School credit.
