Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Shih-Fu Chang, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (SPM) has instituted a number of new initiatives. Among them is the transformation from the current practice of passive processing of contributions to a new, proactive, and holistic process. I am honored to participate in this process as the area editor for feature articles. There comes a call for technical expert groups and individuals in our signal processing society to write feature articles that will have a long-lasting impact and archival value for the broad cross sections of our community. We also encourage you, readers of SPM, to recommend to us potential authors who are capable of writing such articles. For example, you may hear a memorable keynote/plenary speech at a conference/workshop. Let us know about this.
