About the Editors

Rama Chellappa received the B.E. (Hons.) degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the University of Madras, India in 1975 and the M.E. (with Distinction) degree from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 1977. He received the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. Degrees in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, in 1978 and 1981, respectively. During 1981–1991, he was a faculty member in the department of EE-Systems at University of Southern California (USC). Since 1991, he has been a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and an affiliate Professor of Computer Science at University of Maryland (UMD), College Park. He is also affiliated with the Center for Automation Research, the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (Permanent Member) and is serving as the Chair of the ECE department. In 2005, he was named a Minta Martin Professor of Engineering. His current research interests are face recognition, clustering and video summarization, 3D modeling from video, image and video-based recognition of objects, events and activities, dictionary-based inference, compressive sensing, domain adaptation and hyper spectral processing.

Prof. Chellappa received an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, four IBM Faculty Development Awards, an Excellence in Teaching Award from the School of Engineering at USC, and two paper awards from the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR). He is a recipient of the K.S. Fu Prize from IAPR. He received the Society, Technical Achievement, and Meritorious Service Awards from the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He also received the Technical Achievement and Meritorious Service Awards from the IEEE Computer Society. At UMD, he was elected as a Distinguished Faculty Research Fellow, as a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, received an Outstanding Innovator Award from the Office of Technology Commercialization, and an Outstanding GEMSTONE Mentor Award from the Honors College. He received the Outstanding Faculty Research Award and the Poole and Kent Teaching Award for Senior Faculty from the College of Engineering. In 2010, he was recognized as an Outstanding ECE by Purdue University. He is a Fellow of IEEE, IAPR, OSA, and AAAS. He holds four patents.

Prof. Chellappa served as the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence. He has served as a General and Technical Program Chair for several IEEE international and national conferences and workshops. He is a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society and served as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Recently, he completed a two-year term as the President of the IEEE Biometrics Council.

Sergios Theodoridis is currently Professor of Signal Processing and Communications in the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Athens. His research interests lie in the areas of Adaptive Algorithms and Communications, Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition, Signal Processing for Audio Processing and Retrieval. He is the co-editor of the book "Efficient Algorithms for Signal Processing and System Identification," Prentice Hall 1993, the co-author of the best selling book "Pattern Recognition," Academic Press, 4th ed. 2008, the co-author of the book "Introduction to Pattern Recognition: A MATLAB Approach," Academic Press, 2009, and the co-author of three books in Greek, two of them for the Greek Open University. He is Editor-in-Chief for the Signal Processing Book Series, Academic Press and for the E-Reference Signal Processing, Elsevier.

He is the co-author of six papers that have received best paper awards including the 2009 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Transactions on Neural Networks Outstanding paper Award. He has served as an IEEE Signal Processing Society Distinguished Lecturer. He was Otto Monstead Guest Professor, Technical University of Denmark, 2012, and holder of the Excellence Chair, Department of Signal Processing and Communications, University Carlos III, Madrid, Spain, 2011.

He was the General Chairman of EUSIPCO-98, the Technical Program co-Chair for ISCAS-2006, and ISCAS-2013, and co-Chairman and co-Founder of CIP-2008 and co-Chairman of CIP-2010. He has served as President of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and as member of the Board of Governors for the IEEE CAS Society. He currently serves as member of the Board of Governors (Member-at-Large) of the IEEE SP Society.

He has served as a member of the Greek National Council for Research and Technology and he was Chairman of the SP advisory committee for the Edinburgh Research Partnership (ERP). He has served as Vice Chairman of the Greek Pedagogical Institute and he was for 4 years member of the Board of Directors of COSMOTE (the Greek mobile phone operating company).
