Honorary Chair Eberhard Hänsler

We are delighted to announce that Professor Eberhard Hänsler, the initiator and co-organizer of the first International Workshop on Acoustic Echo Control (IWAEC) in (West-)Berlin in September 1989, agreed to serve as Honorary Chair for IWAENC 2020 in Bamberg. His initiative evolved into one of the leading workshops in speech and acoustic signal processing. Reflecting the broadening scope, its name was changed to International Workshop on Acoustic Echo and Noise Control (IWAENC) in 1995 and to International Workshop on Acoustic signal ENhanCement in 2010, respectively.
