Abdelhak M. Zoubir is a Fellow of the IEEE and IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (Class 2010- 2011). He received his Dr.-Ing. from Ruhr- Universität Bochum, Germany in 1992. He was with Queensland University of Technology, Australia from 1992-1998 where he was Associate Professor. In 1999, he joined Curtin University of Technology, Australia as a Professor of Telecommunications and was Interim Head of the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering from 2001 until 2003. In 2003, he moved to Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany as Professor of Signal Processing and Head of the Signal Processing Group. His research interest lies in statistical methods for signal processing with emphasis on bootstrap techniques, robust detection and estimation and array processing applied to telecommunications, radar, sonar, automotive monitoring and safety, and biomedicine. He published over 300 journal and conference papers on these areas. Professor Zoubir was the Technical Chair of the 11th IEEE Workshop on Statistical Signal Processing (SSP 2001), General Co-Chair of the 3rd IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing & Information Technology (ISSPIT 2003) and of the 5th IEEE Workshop on Sensor Array and Multi-channel Signal Processing (SAM 2008). He is the General Co-Chair of the 14th International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC 2013) to be held in Darmstadt, Germany, the General Co-Chair of the 21st European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2013) to be held in Marrakech, Morocco, and the Technical Co-Chair of ICASSP-14 to be held in Florence, Italy. Dr Zoubir was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (1999-2005), a Member of the Senior Editorial Board of the IEEE Journal on Selected Topics in Signal Processing (2009-2011) and he currently serves on the Editorial Boards of the EURASIP journals Signal Processing and the Journal on Advances in Signal Processing (JASP). He currently serves a three-year term as Editor-In-Chief of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (2012-2014). Dr Zoubir was Past Chair (2012), Chair (2010-2011), Vice-Chair (2008-2009) and Member (2002-2007) of the IEEE SPS Technical Committee Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM). He was a Member of the IEEE SPS Technical Committee Sensor Array and Multi-channel Signal Processing (SAM) from 2007 until 2012. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the European Association of Signal Processing (EURASIP).
