Dr. Stephan Weiss
University of Strathclyde, UK
Keynote Speaker

Dr. Stephan Weiss obtained the Dipl.-Ing. degree from the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Erlangen, Germany, in 1995, and a PhD from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, in 1998, both in electronic and electrical engineering. Following previous academic appointments at both the Universities of Strathclyde and Southampton, he is a professor and head of the Centre for Signal and Image Processing (CeSIP) at Strathclyde. Dr. Weiss previously has had visiting roles at the University of Southern California and Samara State Aerospace University, and is currently a guest professor at Alpen-Adria University in Klagenfurt, Austria.

His research interests lie in adaptive, multirate, and array signal processing with applications in communications, audio, and biomedical signal processing, where he has published more than 300 technical papers. His focus for the past years has been to develop techniques for processing broadband multi-sensor signals. For his work in biomedical signal processing, Dr. Weiss was a co-recipient of the 2001 research award of the German society on hearing aids, and was a co-recipient of several best paper awards.

Dr. Weiss is a member of EURASIP and a senior member of the IEEE. Previously, he was the technical co-chair and co-organiser for EUSIPCO 2009 and general chair of IEEE ISPLC 2014, both held in Glasgow, and was part of the organising committee for ICASSP 2019.
