2014 Class of Distinguished Lecturers Announced

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) announced the 2014 Class of Distinguished Lecturers. Five colleagues were honored and they are: Maria Greco (University of Pisa); Alex Kot (School of EEE); Bhaskar Rao (University of California, San Diego); Andrew Singer (University of Illinois ); and Akihiko (Ken) Sugiyama (NEC Corporation).

The IEEE SPS Distinguished Lecturer Program provides the means for Chapters to have access to well-known educators and authors in the fields of signal processing to lecture at Chapter meetings. While many IEEE Societies have similar programs, the SPS provides a substantial amount of financial support for the Chapters to take advantage of this service. Chapters interested in arranging lectures by the Distinguished Lecturers can obtain information from the Society’s web page or by sending an e-mail message to <sp.info AT ieee.org>.

Each year, candidates for the Distinguished Lecturer Program are solicited by the Awards Board from the Society Technical Committees, Editorial Boards, and Chapters. The Awards Board vets the nominations and the Board of Governors approves the final selection. Distinguished Lecturers are appointed for a term of two calendar years.
