By Jan J. Gerbrands (auth.), Jan J. Gerbrands (eds.)

A nice variety of scientists in eu examine associations is fascinated about a number of points of the multidisciplinary box of sign processing. This booklet includes concise descriptions of the actions and pursuits of 379 sign proces­ sing laboratories from 17 ecu international locations. Its objective is twofold: to facilitate communications among associations and person scientists in the sign seasoned­ cessing group - and to offer an disclose of the mixed ecu sign processing study attempt. This booklet is the results of a survey which was once made within the fall of 1983 via the eu organization for sign Processing EURASIP. EURASIP is a non-profit specialist association which goals on the development of communications among teams and members operating within the box of sign professional­ cessing in Europe or in different places, and to replace and disseminate info within the box allover the realm. EURASIP arranges workshops and meetings, e.g., the eu sign Processing meetings EUSIPCO, and publishes the journals sign PROCESSING and SPEECH COMMUNICATION.
