46 SPS Members Elevated to Fellow

Each year, the IEEE Board of Directors confers the grade of Fellow on up to one-tenth of one percent of the voting members. To qualify for consideration, an individual must have been a Member, normally for five years or more, and a Senior Member at the time for nomination to Fellow. The grade of Fellow recognizes unusual distinction in IEEE’s designated fields.

The Signal Processing Society congratulates the following 46 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2019:

Karim Abed-Meraim, for contributions to blind system identification and source separation for communications.

Jill M. Boyce, for contributions to video coding.

Michael Bronstein, for contributions to acquisition, processing, and analysis of geometric data.

David Castanon, for contributions to discrete-time stochastic control and information fusion.

Mujdat Cetin, for contributions to image processing for synthetic aperture radar and sensor array.

Timothy Davidson, for contributions to optimization of signal processing and communication systems.

Meng Hwa Er, for contributions to electronic engineering education.

Jianfeng Gao, for contributions to machine learning for Web search and natural language processing.

Xiaodong He, for contributions to multimodal signal processing in human language and vision technologies.

Steven Chu-Hong Hoi, for contributions to machine learning for multimedia information retrieval and scalable data analytics.

Gang Hua, for contributions to facial recognition in images and videos.
