The SPS Awards Board is now accepting nominations for 2012 major SPS awards, including the Society Award, the Technical Achievement Award, the Education Award, the Meritorious Service Award, the Best Paper Award, Young Author Best Paper Award, Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award and Best Column Award.. Prospective nominators are encouraged to submit nominations well in advance of the deadline of 1 October 2012.

At its 31 March 2012 meeting, the Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society passed amendments to the Society’s Constitution document. Procedures require approval by the IEEE Technical Activities Board, which has already been secured, followed by a 30-day period for member comment. The amendment is considered approved unless one-half percent or more of the Society’s membership objects, in writing, within 30 days of publication. Publication here fulfills the latter portion of the approval requirement.
