Sadaoki Furui
 Dr. Sadaoki Furui is currently a Professor at Tokyo Institute of
 Technology, Department of Computer Science. He is engaged in a wide
 range of research on speech analysis, speech recognition, speaker
 recognition and speech synthesis and has authored or coauthored over
 350 published articles. From 1978 to 1979 he was with the Staff of
 the Acoustics Research Department at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill,
 New Jersey, as a visiting researcher working on speaker verification.
 He is a Fellow of the both IEEE and the Acoustical Society of
 America. He is President of the Acoustical Society of Japan (ASJ),
 Vice President of the International Speech Communication Association,
 and President of the Permanent Council for International Conferences
 on Spoken Language Processing. He served on the IEEE Technical
 Committee on Speech and MMSP and on numerous IEEE conference
 organizing committees. He is an Editor-in-Chief of both the Journal
 of Speech Communication and the Transaction of the Institute of
 Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan
 (IEICE). He is also an Editorial Board member of the Journal of
 Computer Speech and Language and the Journal of Digital Signal
 He received the Yonezawa Prize and the Paper Award from the IEICE
 (1975, 88, 93, 2003), and the Sato Paper Awards from the ASJ (1985, 87). He
 received the Senior Award from the IEEE ASSP Society (1989) and the
 Achievement Award from the Minister of Science and Technology, Japan
 (1989). He received the Book Award from the IEICE (1990).

Society Award from IEEE (2005), the Achievement Award from the Japanese 
Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (2006), the 
Purple Ribbon Medal from Japanese Emperor (2006) and the Distinguished 
Achievement Award from IEICE (2007).
In 1993 he served as an IEEE SPS Distinguished Lecturer. He is the
 author of "Digital Speech Processing, Synthesis, and Recognition"
 (Marcel Dekker, 1989, revised, 2000) in English, "Digital Speech
 Processing" (Tokai University Press, 1985) in Japanese, "Acoustics and
 Speech Processing" (Kindai-Kagaku-Sha, 1992) in Japanese, and "Speech
 Information Processing" (Morikita, 1998) in Japanese. He edited
 "Advances in Speech Signal Processing" (Marcel Dekker, 1992) jointly
 with Dr. M.M. Sondhi. He translated into Japanese "Fundamentals of
 Speech Recognition" authored by Drs. L.R. Rabiner and B.-H. Juang (NTT
 Advanced Technology, 1995) and "Vector Quantization and Signal
 Compression" authored by Drs. A. Gersho and R. M. Gray (Corona-sha,
