The Award Cites Mitra’s Contributions To Circuits And Signal Processing
Dr. Sanjit Mitra has been named the recipient of the 2013 IEEE Gustav Robert Kirchhoff Award for outstanding contributions to the fundamentals of filter design and signal processing.
The award is sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and honors important contributions to any aspect of electronic circuits and systems that has a long-term significance or impact. Recipient selection is administered through the Technical Field Awards Council of the IEEE Awards Board.
The award is named for Gustav Robert Kirchhoff, a physicist who made important contributions to the theory of circuits and black body radiation. The award will be presented at the International Symposium on Circuits And Systems (ISCAS) to be held in Beijing in May 2013.
Dr. Mitra is a Professor Emeritus and Research Professor in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at UCSB. He is presently the Stephen and Etta Varra Professor in USC’s Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering.
Mitra has published more than 700 papers in the areas of analog and digital signal processing, and image processing. He has also author or co-author twelve books and holds five patents.
