Anthony G. CONSTANTINIDES FREng FIET is a Professor of Signal Processing and the creator of the Communications and Signal Processing Group of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Imperial College London. He has been actively involved with research in various aspects of digital filter design, digital signal processing, and communications for more than 40 years. Professor Constantinides' research spans a wide range of Digital Signal Processing and Communications, both from the theoretical as well as the practical points of view. His recent work has been directed toward the demanding problems arising in Financial signal processing.
Professor Constantinides has published several books and over 250 papers in learned journals in the area of Digital signal processing and its applications. He has served as the First President of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and has contributed in this capacity to the establishment of the European Journal for Signal Processing. He has been on, and is currently serving as, a member of many technical program committees of the IEEE, the IEE and other international conferences. He has organised the first ever international series of meetings on Digital Signal Processing, in London initially in 1967, and in Florence (with Vito Cappellini) since 1972.
In 1985 he was awarded the Honour of Chevalier, Palmes Academiques, by the French government, and in 1996, the promotion to Officier, Palmes Academiques. He holds honorary doctorates from European and Far Eastern Universities, several Visiting Professorships, Distinguished Lectureships, Fellowships and other honours around the world.
Professor Constantinides presently is serving as a Member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a member of several Technical Committees of the IEEE and the IEE, and is on the Editorial Boards of many professional journals.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (USA) and of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (UK).
