EURECOM is a private, graduate engineering school and research centre. Its mission is to provide graduate training and to undertake internationally-leading research and development in the communication systems of the future. Co-founded in 1991 by TELECOM ParisTech (ENST) and l’Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), EURECOM is today supported by an increasing number of prestigious industrial partners (currently: SFR, Orange, ST Microelectronics, BMW Group, SAP, Monaco Telecom, Symantec and IABG) in addition to academic partners (currently: Institut Mines TELECOM, Politecnico di Torino, Aalto University, Technische Universität München, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the Vietnam National University). EURECOM enjoys an
international reputation for scholarly excellence and contributes actively to higher education, research and development in each of its three principle domains of specialization: mobile communications, networks and security and multimedia communications.

Jean-Luc Dugelay

Ethics Committee Member

Jean-Luc Dugelay is a Professor in the Department of Multimedia Communications at EURECOM. His current work focuses in the domain of multimedia image processing, in particular activities in security (image forensics, biometrics and video surveillance, mini drones), and facial image processing. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, is an elected member of the EURASIP Board of Governors and a regional director-at-large of the IEEE SP (Europe, Middle East and Africa). He is/was Associate Editor of several international journals such as the IEEE Transactions on Image
Processing and IEEE Transactions on Multimedia. He is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing (SpringerOpen) and Member of the SPS Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (2002-07), SPS Multimedia Technical Committee (1999-2003 and 2005-08), and SPS Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (2010-12). He served as co-organizer for the Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (Cannes, 2001) and Multimodal User Authentication (Santa Barbara, 2003). In 2015, he is serving as General Co-Chair for IEEE ICIP (Québec City) and EURASIP EUSIPCO (Nice).

Nicholas Evans

WP3 Leader and PCB Member

Nicholas Evans is an Assistant Professor at EURECOM where he heads research in Speech and Audio Processing. In addition to other interests in speaker diarization, speech signal processing for mobile device applications and multimodal biometrics, he is studying the threat of spoofing to automatic speaker verification systems and working to
develop new spoofing countermeasures. Previously, his work in spoofing was funded by the EU FP7 ICT TABULA RASA project, continuing today
through OCTAVE. Together with OCTAVE partner UEF, he co-organised the Spoofing and Countermeasures for Automatic Speaker Verification special
session at Interspeech in 2013 and the ASVspoof evaluation at Interspeech in 2015. He was Lead Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions
on Information Forensics and Security special issue in Biometrics Spoofing and Countermeasures and the IEEE SPM special
issue on Biometric Security and Privacy. He is a member of the IEEE and its Signal Processing Society and currently serves as an Associate
Editor of the EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech and Music Processing and as an elected member of the IEEE Speech and Language Technical Committee.
