Professor Peter Meer Elevated to IEEE Fellow


In its November 2011 meeting, the Board of Directors of IEEE has conferred the grade of IEEE Fellow upon Professor Peter Meer for "contributions to mean-shift and robust techniques in computer vision".

According to IEEE, "the grade of IEEE Fellow recognizes unusual distinction in the profession, and shall be conferred only by invitation of the Board of Directors upon a person of outstanding and extraordinary qualifications and experience in IEEE-designated fields, and who has made important individual contributions to one or more of these fields." The number of new Fellows in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth percent of the total voting IEEE membership.

Professor Meer joins several members of our faculty who are IEEE Fellows, i.e., Professors M. Bushnell, N. Mandayam, M. Parashar, A. Petropulu, L. Rabiner, R. Raychaudhuri, C. Rose, P. Sannuti, R. Yates, J. Zhao.

Congratulations to Professor Meer for this great achievement.
