André L. F. de Almeida is a Professor at the Teleinformatics Engineering Department of the Federal University of Ceara. He received a double Ph.D. degree in Sciences and Teleinformatics Engineering from the University of Nice, Sophia Antipolis, France, and the Federal University of Ceara, Fortaleza, Brazil, in 2007. From 2007 until 2008, he held a one-year teaching position at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France. He has been awarded multiple times visiting professor positions at the University Côte D’Azur, France (2012, 2013, 2015, 2018, 2019, 2022-2023).

Prof. Almeida has served as an Associate Editor for several journals, such as the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (2012-2014 and 2014-2016), IEEE Signal Processing Letters (2016-2018 and 2018-2020), and IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (2020-2022). He has served as Guest Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing (2014 and 2022), and Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (2018 and 2019). He also served on the editorial board of other journals, including Circuits, Systems & Signal Processing (2012-2018), Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (2018-2020), the KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems (2012-2014), and the French journal Traitement du Signal (2016-2018). From 2015 until 2021, he was an elected member of the Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) technical committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He also served as a member of the Big Data Special Interest Group (SIG) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2015-2018). He served as the Director-at-Large of the IEEE Signal Processing Society for Regions 7 & 9 (2022-2023).  

Since 2020, he has served as a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He currently serves as an elected member of the Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM) technical committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and an elected member and vice-chair of the EURASIP Signal Processing for Multi-Sensor Systems Technical Area Committee (SPMuS TAC). He has been involved in the organization and chairing of several conferences sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society. In particular, he served as a General Co-Chair of the 2017 IEEE CAMSAP’2017, Dutch Antilles, Technical Co-Chair of the IEEE GlobalSIP’2018 and GlobalSIP’2019 Symposia on Tensor Methods for Signal Processing and Machine Learning, Technical Co-Chair of the IEEE SAM’2020, in Hangzhou, and General Co-Chair of the IEEE CAMSAP’2023, Costa Rica. In 2018, he was elected to the Brazilian Academy of Sciences. He is a research fellow of the CNPq (the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development). Prof. Almeida is a co-recipient of the 2018 IET Communications Premium Award (2018), the 2022 IET Signal Processing Premium Best Paper Award (2022), in addition to the Best Paper Award at the 19th IEEE International Conference on OFDM and Frequency Domain Techniques (2016), Best Paper Award at the 7th Workshop on Communication Networks and Power Systems (2022), and Best Paper Awards at the Brazilian Symposium of Telecommunications and Signal Processing (2020 and 2023).

His research interests lie in signal processing for communications and sensor array and multichannel processing, including channel estimation and equalization, multi-antenna systems, blind/semi-blind signal processing, and direction of arrival estimation. An important part of his research has been dedicated to tensor decompositions with applications to wireless communications.
