Technical Area Committees


The Technical Area Committees (TACs) form the backbone of EURASIP’s technical activities. The TAC members are leading scientists and technical experts in their field. The TACs support EURASIP’s technical activities to ensure highest quality and relevant development of the areas. They are instrumental in building the EURASIP community and adding value for our members.

The TACs facilitate the interaction and communication of EURASIP members in a specific scientific areas, notably by:

  • Sharing knowledge and visions
  • Discussing trends
  • Spreading information about innovations
  • Creating ties and networks
  • Facilitating collaboration beyond EURASIP

In addition, the TACs and their members are expected to:

  • EURASIP conferences
    • contribute as reviewers and technical committee members
    • propose tutorials and special sessions
  • EURASIP publications
    • contribute as reviewers
    • nominate associate editors, guest editors, editor-in-chief
    • review scope of EURASIP publications
    • propose special issues
  • EURASIP awards process
    • propose award nominations
    • provide reviews of award nominations
  • Participate in workshop and summer school organization
  • Participate at the annual meeting held during EUSIPCO
  • Nominate new TAC members and participate in voting

The Director for Technical Activities will oversee the TAC activities and interact with the TAC Chairs. For specific matters, the TAC Chairs will interface with

  • Director for Technical Programs for EURASIP conferences, workshops, summer schools
  • Director for Publications for EURASIP publications
  • Director for Awards for EURASIP awards


TACs are established by the EURASIP Board of Directors following a proposal to the EURASIP President by at least 15 EURASIP members. The proposal should define/include:

  • The technical area to be addressed
  • The motivation and benefit of establishing a TAC in the specific scientific area
  • Relation to existing TACs
  • A list of TAC founding members
  • Proposed Chair and Vice-Chair

The EURASIP Board of Directors may accept or reject the proposal, or may also mandate changes, notably to have a balanced TAC membership with the established minimum number of members. While proposals may be made at any time, the establishment of new TACs will be announced at EUSIPCO. 


TAC members are leading scientists and technical experts in their field. The TACs should strive for a diverse membership in terms of career stage, gender, geographic distribution, etc. TAC members are elected by the current TAC members according to a procedure described in a separate document. The term of TAC members is 3 years and can only be renewed once; retiring TAC members cannot be candidates again before a resting of at least 1 year. A staggered appointment/renewal process is encouraged to ensure continuity. The TAC founding membership, as well as the founding Chair and Vice-Chair, are defined by the EURASIP Board of Directors when establishing the TAC.

To be efficient and relevant, TACs are composed of a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 25 members. Renewal of the TAC membership should be planned to respect these constraints.  

The TACs have a large number of responsibilities for EURASIP’s technical activities. There is a desire to associate highly active TAC members after their membership term has expired and draw upon their expertise and engagement in the TAC activities. For this purpose, the TACs can appoint “Associate members”. More information on the Associate membership is to be found in the “TAC Associate Members” document.


TACs shall have a Chair and a Vice-Chair who is a substitute for the Chair when needed. The TAC Chair is a member of the EURASIP Technical Activities Board, chaired by the Director for Technical Activities. The Chair is expected to attend the annual Technical Activities Board meeting held during EUSIPCO. The terms of the Chair and Vice-Chair are 3 years and cannot be renewed. The Chair and Vice-Chair should be TAC members at the time of election and are elected by the TAC members by a secret ballot. It is the responsibility of the Chair to initiate the elections well in advance of the end of term. To improve the TAC ‘memory’, the past Chair and Vice-Chair should automatically become TAC members after the end of their terms for a 3 year term or an exceptional 1 year period if two 3 year terms have been completed.


The TAC Chair will organize meetings, which can be online or face-to-face. TACs are expected to meet at EUSIPCO under the logistic constraints allowed by the conference organizers. TAC members are expected to participate in person at the yearly EUSIPCO TAC meeting at least every other year.


Every year before the end of March, the TAC should submit to the EURASIP Board of Directors a report of the previous year’s activities, events and achievements.


To assure that TACs remain relevant and useful, they will be reviewed regularly. Additional reviews may be defined at the discretion of the EURASIP Board of Directors. The review will be conducted by a review committee created under the auspices of the EURASIP Board of Directors with at least three EURASIP members; non-EURASIP members may be invited to serve on this committee if considered appropriate. Following a negative review, the EURASIP Board of Directors may take actions to improve the situation or close the TAC.

TAC Website

The TACs will be displayed on the EURASIP website, notably the TAC areas, activities, membership, terms, and former members.

This TAC aims to address and engage in emerging developments at the confluence of signal processing, big data analytics, and machine learning research. Whereas machine learning tools are often employed to enable new signal processing applications, we are also interested in developing new signal and data analysis and synthesis theory, algorithms, and their performance analysis to enable new machine learning applications. This TAC aims to infuse machine learning research with advanced statistical signal processing, factor analysis, and optimization tools – that is, to contribute our unique signal processing expertise to the broader machine learning community.

This TAC covers a broad area of image & signal processing dedicated to biomedical applications in medicine, biology, physiology, neurosciences, genetics, and so on. These fields are driven by the availability of large amounts of signals and images with a huge variety in terms of their nature and spatial and temporal scales; data sources include microscopy, medical imaging devices, (wearable) sensors, all with an increasing degree of integration between acquisition and computation. In addition, there is a need to quantify more advanced features from this data using modeling approaches adopted from the image & signal processing community at large.


Advanced image & signal processing has become an essential part of biomedical research in medicine, molecular biology, neurosciences,… . The BISA TAC wants to actively promote synergies at the interdisciplinary interface where advanced imaging and data processing meet with biomedical sciences. In addition to image & signal processing tailored to biomedical applications, we also want to cover the emerging field of analytics, where learning from this type of data is pursued. An increasing number of researchers in signal processing and part of the EUSIPCO community are getting exposed and engaged into biomedical projects. Therefore, the BISA TAC will actively foster the emergence of a biomedical community within EUSIPCO. We also plan to reach out to other scientific communities.

Planned Activities

  • Strengthen the biomedical activities at EURASIP in terms of workshops, tutorials, and special sessions, in particular, at EUSIPCO. Specifically, we will identify emerging topics, proposing special sessions & chairs.
  • Initiate a Best Paper Award at EUSIPCO for papers in the area of biomedical image and signal processing.
  • Encourage new special issues in the EUSIPCO journals on specific subtopics covered by our TAC.
  • Provide expertise to the EURASIP Board of Directors.
