Prof. Antonio Plaza (M’02-SM’05-F’15) is a Full Professor and the Head of the Hyperspectral Computing Laboratory at the Department of Technology of Computers and Communications, University of Extremadura, where he received the M.Sc. degree in 1999 and the PhD degree in 2002, both in Computer Engineering. His main research interests comprise hyperspectral data processing and parallel computing of remote sensing data. He has authored more than 800 publications in this field, including 418 JCR journal papers, 25 book chapters, and 330 peer-reviewed conference proceeding papers. He has guest edited 17 special issues on hyperspectral remote sensing for different journals. Prof. Plaza is a Fellow of IEEE “for contributions to hyperspectral data processing and parallel computing of Earth observation data,” a Fellow of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) and an elected member of Academia Europaea, The Academy of Europe. He is a recipient of the recognition of Best Reviewers of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (in 2009) and a recipient of the recognition of Best Reviewers of the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (in 2010), for which he served as Associate Editor in 2007-2012. He is also an Associate Editor for IEEE Access (receiving the recognition of Outstanding Associate Editor for the journal in 2017) and was also member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Newsletter (2011-2012) and the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine (2013). He was also a member of the steering committee of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (JSTARS). He is a recipient of the Best Column Award of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine in 2015, the 2013 Best Paper Award of the JSTARS journal, and the most highly cited paper (2005-2010) in the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing. He received best paper awards at the IEEE Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing, the IEEE International Conference on Space Technology, and the IEEE Symposium on Signal Processing and Information Technology. He served as the Director of Education Activities for the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) in 2011-2012, and as President of the Spanish Chapter of IEEE GRSS in 2012-2016. He is currently serving as Chair of the Publications Awards Committee of IEEE GRSS and as a Vice-Chair of the Fellow Evaluations Committee of IEEE GRSS. He has reviewed more than 500 manuscripts for over 50 different journals. He served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing journal for five years (2013-2017) and as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal on Miniaturization for air and Space Systems (2019-2020). He has been included in the 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 Highly Cited Researchers List (Clarivate Analytics). Additional information: sites.google.com/view/antonioplaza
