About the Author
Petar M. Djuric received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI, USA. He is currently a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, USA. His research has been in the area of signal and information processing with primary interests in the theory of signal modeling, detection, and estimation; Monte Carlo-based methods; signal and information processing over networks; machine learning, RFID and the IoT. He has been invited to lecture at many universities in the United States and overseas. Prof. Djuric was a recipient of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award in 2007 and the EURASIP Technical Achievement Award in 2012. In 2008, he was the Chair of Excellence of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid-Banco de Santander. From 2008 to 2009, he was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He has been on numerous committees of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and of many professional conferences and workshops. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks. Prof. Djuric is a Fellow of IEEE and EURASIP. Cedric Richard received the Dipl.-Ing. and the M.S. degrees in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in 1998, from Compiegne University of Technology, France, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is a Full Professor at the Universite Nice Sophia Antipolis, France. He was a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France in 2010-2015.
