Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2011 and will serve until 31 December 2013. Ten candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions. The successful candidates represent a broad spectrum of the Signal Processing Society, and the Board of Governors confirmed the election results at their 30 September 2010 Board meeting. The successful candidates are:

P. Djuric W. Karl S. Theodoridis
Petar M. Djurić

The Board of Governors (BoG) is the governing body that oversees the activities of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The SPS BoG has the responsibility of establishing and implementing policy, and receiving reports from its standing boards and committees. Members-at-Large represent the member view point in the Board decision-making. They typically review, discuss, and act upon a wide range of items affecting the actions, activities, and health of the Society. More information can be found at the IEEE Signal Processing Society website.
