Prof. Wade Trappe was elected Vice Chair of the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee. The one-year term of Vice Chair will start on 2015/1/1. The Vice Chair position automatically succeeds to the position of Chair (2016-2017) then Past Chair.
This is a very visible position in the IEEE Signal Processing Society, in an area that has been attracting increasing interest. Dr. Trappe's election is testament of the recognition that he enjoys by the technical community in that field.
