Call for Papers: A Special Issue for SampTaf07 Workshop in

Thessaloniki, Greece


As was announced during the workshop, our journal is planning a special issue(s) for SampTaf07 for papers related to presentations during the workshop.


Deadline for Submission: Oct. 30, 2007


Submission: Papers can be submitted in TEX, LATEX, as postscript, or as pdf files. Instructions to authors and templates are available for download on the journalfs homepage: Submissions should be sent via e-mail (as an attachment) to one of the two assistant executive editors:


1. Mathematically oriented papers should be sent to Professor Gerhard Schmeisser,



2. Engineering or applications inclined papers should be sent to Professor Hidemitsu Ogawa,




A Complete Bibliography of Sampling Theory and Applications


Currently we have volunteered working on a complete bibliography for Sampling Theory and Applications, we will publish it as soon as it is ready, which we hope by the next issue.





STSIP Available Online


You can find all the information about the journal, and you can view the abstracts of the last six volumes, plus a sample issue, Volume 6, Number 2.  Those who subscribe to the hard copy will have free access to the online version.  The price for a volume of the online version is less than half of that of the hard copy: US $99 for university libraries and other institutions, and US $50 for individuals.  Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.

SampTaf07 – June 1-5 in Thessaloniki, Greece.


Our seventh workshop for SampTaf07 (Sampling Theory and Applications), June 1-5, was held with success in the scenic beautiful city of Thessaloniki (the happy city), Greece. It was hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and the workshop activities took place in the neighboring campus of Macedonia University. Professor Costas Karanikas of the informatics department and his colleagues organized the workshop with help from Professor Hans G. Feichtinger. Dr. Nikolaos Atreas and Ms. Persefoni Polychronidou were the right arms to Professor Karanikas in arranging the program, and attending to the necessary needs of all guests.

We had a very warm welcome from the vice president of Aristotle University. The workshop was well-organized, and many exciting activities were planned for attendees and their families. This included dining in the finest of restaurants in Thessaloniki, visiting ancient ruins with a tour guide, swimming, and dinning on the sea shore. Such dinners and entertainments were culminated by a special dinner gathering for celebrating the 75th birthday of Abdul J. Jerri. Professor Rowland Higgins was very kind to give a presentation on Abdulfs education and research, besides his accomplishments during the long years of service to the sampling research activities. See representative photos of SampTAf07 activities in the next two pages.

In the last few days, Professor Akram Aldroubi was very instrumental in setting the solid grounds for the workshopfs committee, which will decide and oversee the future workshops.



Attentive Audience and serious discussions.
