Jiri Jan graduated in electrical engineering, in 1963, he received his Ph.D. degree in 1969, the prime scientific grade from the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, in 1986, and became a Full Professor of electronics, Brno University of Technology, in 1991. After publishing in the areas of numerical antenna, and later also in circuit analysis, he has been specialized in digital signal and image processing since the seventies, including applications in biomedical engineering. In the last ten years, he steered several international and national grant projects sponsored by European Commission such as TEMPUS and COPERNICUS, and by the Grant Agency of Czech Republic. He has published over 200 papers mostly in international journals and conferences and the book Digital Signal Filtering, Analysis, and Restoration (IEE Publishing, London, UK, 2000) that appeared partly modified also in Czech (1997, 2002). His recent international activities are being an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (1996–2001); EURASIP Central European Liaison since 1994; National Board Member of the Czech Society for Biomedical Engineering since 1990; Member of the Editorial Board of EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing since 2000; founding member of Engineering Academy of the Czech Republic since 1994; Chair of International Program Committee of Biennial EURASIP Conference Biosignal (supported also by IEEE-EMBS), ans so on.
