**Constantin
Paleologu** was born in Romania in 1975. In 1998 he received a
M.Sc. degree in telecommunications networks from Faculty of Electronics,
Telecommunications, and Information Technology, University Politehnica of
Bucharest (UPB), Romania. He also received a masters degree in digital signal
processing in 1999, and a Ph.D. degree (*MAGNA CUM LAUDE*) in adaptive
signal processing in 2003, both from the same institution. As a Ph.D. student
(from December 1999 to July 2003), he worked on adaptive filters and echo
cancellation. Since October 1998 he has been a member of the Telecommunications
Department of UPB, where currently is a Professor.

His
research interests include adaptive filtering algorithms, sparse systems, acoustic
signal processing, echo cancellation, noise reduction, and DSP/FPGA
implementation. He co-authored 7 books/chapters, published more than 170 papers
in journals and conference proceedings, and was the coordinator of 6 national
research grants. He received the ** Gheorghe
Cartianu Award** from the

Constantin
Paleologu is a member of the *IEEE Signal Processing Society*. He serves
as a reviewer for several international journals (*IEEE, IET, Elsevier,
Eurasip, Whiley, etc.*) and as a member of the Technical Program Committee
for many international conferences. He also serves as **Editor-in-Chief** of
the *International Journal on Advances in
Systems and Measurements*. He is a **Fellow **of
the** ***International Academy, Research, and Industry Association*
(IARIA) from 2008.
