N1 - Funding Information: Prof. Karam is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award. She served as the Chair of the IEEE Communications and Signal Processing Chapters in Phoenix in 1997 and 1998. She also served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING from 1999 to 2003 and of the IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING LETTERS from 2004 to 2006, and as a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Conference Board from 2003 to 2005. She is currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING and as the Technical Program Co-Chair of the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing. She also serves on the editorial board of the Foundations and Trends in Signal Processing journal. She is an elected member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society’s DSP Technical Committee and of the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s IVMSP Technical Committee. She is a member of the Signal Processing, and Circuits and Systems societies of the IEEE. Funding Information: Prof. Ebrahimi has been the recipient of various distinctions and awards, such as the IEEE and Swiss national ASE award, the SNF-PROFILE grant for advanced researchers, Four ISO-Cer-tificates for key contributions to MPEG-4 and JPEG 2000, and the Best Paper Award of IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CONSUMER ELECTRONICS. He became a Fellow of the international society for optical engineering (SPIE) in 2003. He has initiated more than two dozen National, European, and International cooperation projects with leading companies and research institutes around the world. He is also the head of the Swiss delegation to MPEG, JPEG, and SC29, and acts as the Chairman of Advisory Group on Management in SC29. He is a member of Scientific Advisory Board of various start-up and established companies in the general field of information technology. He has served as Scientific Expert and Evaluator for research funding agencies such as those of European Commission, the Greek Ministry of Development, the Austrian National Foundation for Scientific Research, the Portuguese Science Foundation, as well as a number of venture capital companies active in the field of information technologies and communication systems. Funding Information: Sheila S. Hemami (S’89–M’95–SM’03–F’08) received the B.S. degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1990, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. She was with Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Palo Alto, CA, in 1994. In 1995, she joined the fac-ulty of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, where she is currently a Professor and Director of the Visual Communications Lab. She has held visiting positions at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL WISH Distinguished Visiting Pro-fessor), Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, and Rice University, Houston, TX (TI Distinguished Visiting Professor), and in 2001, she visited the Faculte de Sciences, Rabat, Morocco, as a Fulbright Distinguished Lecturer. Dr. Hemami is currently the Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MULTIMEDIA and serves as an elected member of the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors. She chaired the IEEE Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee, and has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SIGNAL PROCESSING. She has served on various program committees and organizing committees. In 1997, she received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. She held the Kodak Term Professorship of Electrical Engineering at Cornell University from 1996 to 1999. In 2000, she received the Eta Kappa Nu C. Holmes MacDonald Outstanding Teaching Award (a national award), and she has won numerous teaching awards at Cornell University. She was a finalist for the Eta Kappa Nu Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer in 2003. In 2005, she received the Alice H. Cook and Constance E. Cook Award at Cornell University for her leadership of the Women in Science and Engineering committee. Dr. Hemami is a member of Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi. Funding Information: Dr. Watson is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and also serves as the Vice Chair for Vision Science and Human Factors of the International Committee on Display Measurement. In 1990, he received NASA’s H. Julian Allen Award for outstanding scientific paper, and in 1993 he was appointed Ames Associate Fellow for exceptional scientific achievement. He is the 2007 recipient of the Otto Schade Award from the Society for Information Display and the 2008 winner of the Special Recognition Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
