Professor Sayed, dean of the School of Engineering and professor at the Institute of Electrical Engineering, director of the Adaptive Systems laboratory, has been awarded the 2020 Norbet Wiener Society Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society for “contributions to adaptive and statistical signal processing and outstanding leadership in the Signal Processing Society.” The Norbert Wiener Award is the Society’s highest honor. It recognizes outstanding technical contributions in a field within the scope of the Signal Processing Society and outstanding leadership within that field. The awardee is expected to deliver the Norbert Wiener Lecture at the 2021 flagship ICASSP (International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, & Signal Processing) Conference, which will be held in Toronto, Canada.

Each year, the IEEE Signal Processing Society presents the Norbert Wiener Award to recognize a member for technical contributions in the field of signal processing. The winner is judged on the basis of publications, patents, books, lectures, etc. Each winner of the Norbert Wiener Society Award is also required to present a lecture at ICASSP.
