The IEEE Board of Directors has approved the 2019 IEEE Technical Field Awards. The complete list of recipients and their citations is online at www.ieee.org/awards. Please feel free to send your notes of congratulations and to publicize the recipients within your IEEE and professional affiliations.

The following list reflects signal processing related and/or SPS Member award recipients:

The IEEE James L. Flanagan Speech and Audio Processing Award recognizes outstanding contribution to the advancement of speech and/or audio signal processing was awarded to Hermann Ney "for pioneering contributions to statistical and computational modeling for speech recognition and machine translation."

The IEEE Fourier Award for Signal Processing recognizes an outstanding contribution to the advancement of signal processing, other than in the areas of speech and audio processing was awarded to Alan C. Bovik "for seminal contributions and high-impact innovations to the theory and application of perception-based image and video processing.”

The IEEE Leon K. Kirchmayer Graduate Teaching Award recognizes inspirational teaching of graduate students in the IEEE fields of interest was awarded to Gregory Wornell "for leadership in the mentoring of research students and in the development of graduate curricula that incorporate cutting-edge research perspectives."

The IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award recognizes outstanding early to mid-career contributions to technologies holding the promise of innovative applications was awarded to SPS Member, Robert W. Heath, Jr. and Jeffrey G. Andrews "for contributions to wireless communication systems."

The IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award rrecognizes inspirational teaching of undergraduate students in the fields of interest of IEEE was awarded to Lisa Gresham Huettel "for leadership in curriculum development as well as teaching and mentoring of undergraduate students in electrical and computer engineering."
