Past President and Chair, Nominations and Appointments Committee

Members-at-Large Election Results:

Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2015 and will serve until 31 December 2017. Nine candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions. The successful candidates represent a broad spectrum of the Signal Processing Society. The Board of Governors will confirm the election results at their December Board meeting. The successful candidates are:

Completing their terms as Members-at-Large on 31 December 2014 are: Phil Chou (Microsoft Corporation); CC Jay Kuo (University of Southern California) and Anna Scaglione (University of California, Davis).

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.
