Newsletter – Vol. 34, September 2023

EURASIP extends a warm welcome to all members, especially those who joined the Association at the 2023 edition of EUSIPCO organized in Helsinki. This conference was very successful and it was great to meet you in Finland. A total of 409 papers were accepted and around 585 persons attended the conference in person. This very good attendance implied fruitful exchanges between researchers working in the area of signal and image processing. We also had the opportunity to discover the Finnish culture.

On behalf of the entire Association, we send many thanks to the organizing committee of EUSIPCO 2023, particularly the General Chairs Esa Ollila and Sergiy Vorobyov, the technical program chairs Antonio Marques, Mikko Valkama and Santiago Segarra, and all the members of the local committee. In addition, we enjoyed some excellent keynotes, including the EURASIP Fellow Inaugural Lecture given by Dimitri Van De Ville and the excellent presentations of Michal Irani, Osvaldo Simeone and Simon Doclo, as well as all the regular paper sessions and special sessions. These keynotes and other recent presentations will be freely available via very soon.

EURASIP has been fully active throughout and after the pandemic, with meetings, workshops, conferences, and seasonal schools taking place online. It is remarkable how people have adapted to make the best possible outcome of difficult situations. I sincerely hope that EURASIP members, new and existing, will enjoy participating in and contributing to a variety of activities organized and sponsored by the Association. Our newly updated website at is the place to find out what upcoming events are scheduled and to see other details, including EURASIP publications and awards.

I take this opportunity to look forward to EUSIPCO 2024 planned to take place in Lyon (France) in person. The conference dates are August 26 to August 30, 2024. Please visit for details.

Dear EURASIP members,

It was great to see so many of you in Helsinki for the 31th edition of the conference EURASIP. By this message, I would like to remind you that your vote in the BoD elections is important.
A valid membership gives you the right to vote, so please renew it before the deadline (note that if you registered to EUSIPCO 2023, you automatically became a EURASIP member).

EURASIP is managed by a Board of Directors that is elected by the members. On December 31st, 2023, three current Board members will end their term: Maria Sabrina Greco (1st term), Kostas Berberidis (2nd term) and Toon van Waterschoot (2nd term). As a consequence three seats become vacant on 1st of January 2024.

This year you can find the following candidates on the election ballot (in alphabetical order):

  • Maria Sabrina Greco
  • Xavier Mestre
  • Esa Ollila
  • Nelly Pustelnik
  • Jean-Philippe Thiran

Their biographies can be found on the EURASIP website.

The voting tool is available now on the EURASIP membership portal after logging in (in the elections tab). The voter is invited to rank the candidates in the order of preference. The candidate ranked as first will receive 5 points, the candidate ranked as second will receive 4 points, and so on. The voter can return to the voting tool to change their vote before the deadline. Only the last vote submitted before the deadline will be counted. The voting closes on September 22, 2023.
The three candidates with the highest number of points will be nominated for being appointed to the Board of Directors by the EURASIP General Assembly. The results of the election will be communicated to the EURASIP community by newsletter and on this page.

The EURASIP BoD welcomes proposals from prospective organizers of webinars. For more information, click here.

The next webinar sponsored by EURASIP will be held by Steffen Wendzel, and will be about “Recent Developments in Network Information Hiding”.

DATE and TIME: 19 October 2023, 2pm CEST

Abstract: In recent years, information hiding methods have been increasingly applied in computer networks, especially by malware. This webinar starts with an introduction to network-level information hiding methods, including techniques of network covert channel research and selected methods of censorship circumvention. It highlights the recent advancements regarding a taxonomy for concealment and obfuscation methods and provides an outlook on future steps to be undertaken in this context. Afterwards, the webinar highlights a novel concealment method that called a “history covert channel”. A history covert channel points to recently seen legitimate traffic to minimize the amount of transferred secret data (as it only transfers a “pointer” to legitimate data). Further the webinar, presents a covert channel called “epsilon-kappa-libur“ that circumvents highly-cited heuristics and two recent ML-based detection methods.

Speaker: Steffen Wendzel is a professor of information security and computer networks at Hochschule Worms, where he is also the scientific director of the Center for Technology and Transfer. In addition, he is a lecturer at the University of Hagen. Before his professorship, he was a postdoc at Fraunhofer FKIE in Bonn, where he led a research team on smart building security. He received his Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) and his Habilitation (Dr. habil.) from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Hagen in 2013 and 2020, respectively.

The EURASIP Technical Area Committees (TACs) form the backbone of EURASIP’s technical activities ensuring highest quality and relevance. TAC members are leading scientists and technical experts in their field. The TACs are currently soliciting nominations for new members joining 2024 for a three-year mandate.

The TACs facilitate the interaction and communication of EURASIP members in a specific scientific area and support EURASIP conferences, seasonal schools, publications, and the awards process, please see the EURASIP website for further details.

The nomination form must include information on the area of expertise, a short bio (max. 300 words) and a statement of the nominee (max. 300 words) stressing possible contributions to the TAC. Self-nominations are possible and all nominations require a supporting statement by a member of the corresponding TAC. The nomination must be received by the TAC chair (find email address on website) by 15 November.

The TAC members vote on the nominations and the outcome will be communicated to the nominators before the end of the year.
