Distinguished Professor José Príncipe was recently informed that he is the winner of the 2020 IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Claude Shannon-Harry Nyquist Technical Achievement Award “for fundamental contributions to adaptive learning systems.” He will accept the award in person at the 2021 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), to be held June 6–11 in Toronto, Canada.
The highly prestigious Claude Shannon-Harry Nyquist Award honors a person who, over a period of years, has made outstanding technical contributions to theory and/or practice in technical areas within the scope of the society, as demonstrated by publications, patents, or recognized impact on the field. A list of past winners is available on the IEEE SPS website. The list comprises the most respected names in signal processing since its inception as an engineering discipline.
Founded as IEEE’s first society in 1948, the Signal Processing Society is the world’s premier association for signal processing engineers and industry professionals. Its history spans almost 70 years, featuring a membership base of more than 19,000 signal processing engineers. The society also oversees publication of numerous periodicals, including the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine.
