Santiago Segarra receives 2015 Best Student Paper Award at 2015 Asilomar Conference

Santiago Segarra, doctoral student in Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE), is the recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the 2015 Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers held in Pacific Grove, CA. The conference provides a forum for presenting recent and novel work in various areas of theoretical and applied signal processing. His paper "Sampling of Graph Signals: Successive Local Aggregations at a Single Node" introduces a novel scheme for sampling bandlimited graph signals based on local information gathered at a node when interacting with its neighbors and identifies conditions for perfect recovery.

Co-authors on the paper are Antonio G. Marques, associate professor at the King Juan Carlos University (Spain), Geert Leus, full professor at TU Delft (The Netherlands), and Alejandro Ribeiro, associate professor in ESE at the University of Pennsylvania. One finalist paper was chosen for each of the 8 conference tracks, Segarra's paper being the one representing the "Networks" track.

The 8 finalists presented their paper in front of a panel composed of five senior professors and the best paper award was then granted to Santiago Segarra based on a combination of technical relevance and presentation clarity."
