The IEEE Division IX Division-Director Nominating Committee invites nominations for the position of Division IX Director. Division Directors are elected to the IEEE Board by members of Societies they represent.  They first serve as Directors-elect before becoming Directors and Members of the IEEE Board.  Division Directors represent the membership of his/her Division in the IEEE Assembly as a voting delegate.

In accordance with the Bylaws of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the membership will elect, by direct ballot, THREE Members-at-Large to the Board of Governors (BoG) for three-year terms commencing 1 January 2011 and ending 31 December 2013, as well as ONE Regional Director-at-Large each for the corresponding regions: Regions 1-6 (US), Regions 7 and 9 (Canada and Latin America), Region 8 (Europe/Middle East/Africa) and Region 10 (Asia/Pacific Rim) for two-year terms commencing 1 January 2011 and ending 31 December 2012.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society congratulates the following 38 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2010:

Four SPS members have been selected to receive prestigious IEEE Medals in 2010. They are: Ray Dolby (Dolby Laboratories, Inc., San Francisco, CA) for the IEEE Edison Medal; John M. Cioffi (Stanford University, Stanford, CA) for the IEEE Alexander Graham Bell Medal; Ronald Schafer (Hewlett Packard, Palo Alto, CA) for the IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal; and Alfonso Farina (SELEX-Sistemi Integrati, Rome, Italy) for the IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal for Radar Technologies and Applications.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) announced the 2010 Class of Distinguished Lecturers.  Five colleagues were honored and they are: Sheila Hemami (Cornell University, NY); Shrikanth Narayanan (University of Southern California, CA); Antonio Oretga (University of Southern California, CA); Venu Veeravalli (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Il); and Abdelhak Zoubir (Darmstadt University of Technology, GERMANY).

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) invites nominations for the Vice President- Awards & Membership Officer position for the term 1 January 2011 through 31 December 2013.

John M. Cioffi and H. Vincent Poor have been elected International Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering of the United Kingdom, two of only three engineers worldwide to be so elected this year.  They were inducted into the Academy at its New Fellows Dinner on 9 November 2009, in London, UK.

An exclusive article by Petar Djuric, SPS Vice President-Finance, on Society's finances and many efforts for bringing additional values to its members, including expanded access to SPS publications, enhanced digital publications, new conference events and member discount in registration, and travel support to students and distinguished lecturers.

Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2010 and will serve until 31 December 2012. Seven candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions. The successful candidates represent a broad spectrum of the Signal Processing Society, and the Board of Governors will confirm the election results at the next meeting in November 2009. The successful candidates are: Alex Acero (Microsoft Corporation, USA), Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola (Arizona State University, USA), and Mats Viberg (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden).
