Eurasip Newsletter

Newsletter – Vol. 33, July-August 2022

EURASIP created and maintains a database of PhD theses at eurasip.org, 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 2022 winners are:

Maja Taseska for the PhD thesis "Informed spatial filters for speech enhancement", supervised by Emanuel A. P. Habets (Friedrich-Alexander Universitat Erlangen-Nornberg, Germany, 2018).

Carolina Varon for the PhD thesis "Mining the ECG: Algorithms and Applications", supervised by Sabine Van Huffel and Johan Suykens (KU Leuven, Belgium, 2017).

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

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:

  • Technical Achievement Award
  • Group Technical Achievement Award
  • Meritorious Service Award
  • Athanasios Papoulis Award
  • Early Career Award

For additional information on the scope and criteria for these awards, please visit the EURASIP website at www.eurasip.org. 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.

Please submit nominations to the EURASIP Awards Director, Maria Sabrina Greco, by e-mail. The deadline for nominations is December 31, 2022.

We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues and peers.

Five years in the making, Professor William A Gardner of the University of California, Davis offers a website resource for practitioners and scholars of statistical signal processing of cyclostationary signals. This unique website, www.cyclostationarity.com , to be maintained in perpetuity by the University and volunteer Website Content Managers from the international community, is more like an encyclopedic reference book comprised of many independent contributions than is the typical technical website, yet it benefits from an integrative narrative that provides cohesion.

Some individual pages are similar to chapters or sections of chapters in a book, indexed by a traditional table of contents, and some chapters are compendia in their own right. The cross-referencing of pages and sections of pages is made more effective with the use of internal links. The external sources linked to are diverse, including published and unpublished documents, annotated slides from conference presentations and lectures, and even entire books, all tied together with narrative.

These links do now or will soon provide free access. This enables a treatment that provides both depth and breadth of perspective. Historical perspective also is integrated to reveal how each area of thought evolved from its origins to the form it takes today. Users can choose the depth of treatment desired, and the attention given to individual subtopics and alternative possibly conflicting perspectives and even conflicting theories. Paradigm shifts are explained and the value of persistence in the face of resistance by conservative thinkers is demonstrated. Some autobiographical content is also included where it may help bring topics to life. The content listed in the Table of Contents is within 5% of being completed and is scheduled for 100% completion this calendar year.
