The Autumn meeting of the Chapter ExCom was held on the 7th of October, 2013 in TUT. Issues discussed included theupcoming SoC 2013 Symposium, arrangement and advertisement for the invited IEEE Distinguished Lecturers, and arrangements for the final (annual) meeting of the Chapter, where elections for next year's officers will be conducted. The ExCom also discussed the possibility of applying for Signal Processing Society's Chapter of the Year award. However, later it was clarified that this award will consider Chapter activities from year 2012. So it was decided to postpone the application for next year. The annual meeting was scheduled during the week between December 11 and Christmas vacations. Election procedure will remain as previously. Members present at the meeting will be able to nominate themselves for the four open positions (Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secratary). The officers will be elcted with a simple majority vote.
