Best Paper Awards for 2017


During 2013, Birkhäuser (Springer) instituted three Best Paper Awards for papers published in Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing (see the announcement in the October 2013 issue of CSSP). A call for nominations for these awards was sent out to all the Associate Editors inviting them to nominate those papers published in 2016 or 2017 in CSSP, which should be considered for these awards. This call was also posted on the CSSP website. A total of six papers were nominated. A Selection Committee consisting of Dr. P. V. Ananda Mohan, Electronic Corporation of India Limited, Bangalore, India, and Dr. S. M. Mahbubur Rahman, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh, was set up to select the best paper in each category for the year 2017. The recipient for the Armen H. Zemanian Best Paper Award, given for the best paper published in 2017 in the areas of Circuits and Systems, is Szymon Szczesny for the paper entitled “Current-Mode FPAA with CMRR Elimination and Low Sensitivity to Mismatch”, published in the July 2017 issue, pp. 2673–2696. The recipients for the Sydney R. Parker Best Paper Award, given for the best paper published in 2017 in the area of Signal Processing, are Dorota Majorkwska-Mech and Aleksandr Cariow for their paper entitled “A Low Complexity Approach to Computation of the Discrete Fractional Fourier Transform”, published in the October 2017 issue, pp. 4118–4144. The latter paper was also chosen for the M.N.S. Swamy Best Paper Award, which is given for the best paper published in 2016 or 2017 irrespective of the subject area. Each of these awardees will receive a certificate and a cash prize. I would like to congratulate the recipients of the three awards. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the nominators and especially, the members of Selection Committee for their time and effort in selecting the winners for the various awards.
