Elsevier Announces New Editor-in-Chief for Digital Signal Processing

New York, 27 October 2011 – Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced that Ercan Engin Kuruoglu, Senior Research Scientist at Italian National Council of Research (CNR), Institute of Science and Technology of Information (ISTI), “A. Faedo”, Pisa succeeds Muralidhar Rangaswamy and Fred Harris as Editor-in-Chief of Digital Signal Processing ( www.elsevier.com/locate/dsp).

Ercan Engin Kuruoglu received his PhD and MPhil degrees in information engineering from the University of Cambridge. His research activities concentrated on several signal processing areas including impulsive process modelling by alpha-stable distributions, statistical/Bayesian image processing, source separation for cosmology, bioinformatics, collaborative multimedia systems, and information and coding theory. He held research positions in INRIA (as an ERCIM fellow), Xerox Research Europe, Cambridge and Georgia Institute of Technology at Shanghai. He received the Alexander von Humboldt Experienced Researcher Fellowship and will be with the Humboldt University, Berlin in 2012. Currently, he is an Associate Professor and Senior Researcher at ISTI-CNR in Pisa, Italy. His past editorial experience includes several Guest Editorships for special issues and Associate Editorships in various signal and image processing journals.

Kuruoglu aims “to differentiate Digital Signal Processing from other signal processing journals by making it more dynamic, more innovative, more timely, more revolutionary and liberal to new ideas.” He stated, “We will become a journal the publication date of which the signal processing audience will be waiting for with impatience, in which researchers from diverse areas in signal processing will desire to publish and where they will find their new ideas accepted and valued.”

“Elsevier is delighted to have Ercan Kuruoglu as the new Editor-in-Chief of the journal” commented Christopher Greenwell, Publisher for Elsevier’s control and signal processing journals. “Our shared vision of rapid publication of novel research coupled with a return to encouraging high-quality tutorial and review papers has the aim of once again making Digital Signal Processing the first choice for both readers and authors looking to be at the leading edge of the field.”
