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. in Sciences and Teleinformatics Engineering from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France, and the Federal University of Ceara, Fortaleza, Brazil, in 2007. He was awarded multiple times visiting professor positions at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France (2012-2013; 2018-2019; 2022-2023). He has served as an Associate Editor for several journals, such as the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (2012-2014; 2014-2016), IEEE Signal Processing Letters (2016-2018; 2018-2020), and IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (2020-2022). He is a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. Prof. Almeida is an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM) Technical Committee (2022-2024) and an elected member of the EURASIP Signal Processing for Multi-Sensor Systems Technical Area Committee (SPMuS TAC) (2016-2018 and 2019-2022), where he currently serves as the Vice-Chair. He served on the IEEE SPS Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee for two terms (2015-2018 and 2018-2021). He was the IEEE SPS Director-at-Large for Regions 7 & 9 (2022-2023).

Prof. Almeida was involved in organizing and chairing several IEEE SPS conferences. In particular, he was a General Co-Chair of the 2017 IEEE International Workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing (CAMSAP’2017), Technical Co-Chair of the IEEE GlobalSIP’2018 and IEEE GlobalSIP’2019 Symposia on Tensor Methods for Signal Processing and Machine Learning, Technical Co-Chair of the 11th IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing Workshop (SAM’2020), and General Co-Chair of the 2023 IEEE International Workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing (CAMSAP’2023). He is a research fellow of the CNPq (the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development). In 2018, Prof. Almeida was elected a Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences.

Prof. Almeida is a co-recipient of the 2018 IET Communications Premium Best Paper Award (2018), Best Paper Award at the 19th IEEE International Conference on OFDM and Frequency Domain Techniques (2016), Best Paper Award at the XXXVIII Brazilian Symposium of Telecommunications and Signal Processing (2020, 2023), and the 2022 IET Signal Processing Premium Best Paper Award (2022). He has published over 250 papers in journals and conferences, six book chapters, and is co-inventor of 7 international patents. His research interests lie in signal processing for communications, sensor array and multichannel processing, multilinear algebra, and wireless communication networks. An essential part of his research has been dedicated to tensor decompositions with applications to wireless communications.
