Kovačević honored with IEEE SPS Technical Achievement Award

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) recently awarded Jelena Kovačević with the 2016 Technical Achievement Award for contributions to the theory and practice of signal representations. This award is one of the Society’s most prestigious award.

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. Engineers around the world look to the Society for information on the latest developments in the signal processing field. Its deeply rooted history spans almost 70 years, featuring a membership base of more than 19,000 deeply interested and involved signal processing engineers, academics, industry professionals and students who are all part of a dynamic global community – spanning 100 countries worldwide.

On March 5, 2017, The Society will formally honor Kovačevic at The 42nd IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP2017) in New Orleans.
