Freddy Bruckstein (CS-Technion), David Donoho (Statistics-Stanford) and I have been selected the winners of the 2014 SIAG/Imaging Science PrizeFreddy Bruckstein (CS-Technion), David Donoho (Statistics-Stanford) and I have been selected the winners of the 2014 SIAG/Imaging Science Prize. The SIAM Activity Group on Imaging Science (SIAG/IS) will award the prize at the SIAM Conference on Imaging Science (В IS14, May 12-14, 2014, Hong Kong). The prize is awarded to the authors of the best paper on mathematical and computational aspects of imaging. Specifically, the committee referred toВ our paper, "From Sparse Solutions of Systems of Equations to Sparse Modeling of Signals and Images," SIAM Review 2009, recognizing us for our "fundamental contribution to the theory and practice of sparse representations and compressed sensing, and their popularization within the imaging science community.".

Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of the IEEERecognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of the IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for one of the AssociationвЂ™s most prestigious honors, elevation to IEEE Fellow. I have just been informed that the IEEE Board of Directors, at its November 2011 meeting, elevated me toВ IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2012, with the following citation: "for contributions to sparsity-and-redundancy in image processing".

Freddy Bruckstein's, David Donoho's and Michael Elad's article has been selected by Thomson Reuters Essential Science IndicatorsIn February 2009, Freddy Bruckstein, David Donoho, and I published a paper in SIAM-Review (SIAM Rev. 51: 34-81, March 2009) on sparse representations, covering this topic from initial theoretical ideas, and all the way to applications in image processing. Few weeks ago we have been notified thatВ "this article has been identified by Thomson Reuters Essential Science Indicators as a featured Fast-Breaking Paper in the field of Mathematics, which means it is one of the most-cited papers in this discipline published during the past two years". Information about this article and the story behind it are now featured inВ Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch.
