Though the IEEE Signal Processing (SPS) and Communications (COMSOC) Societies have evolved somewhat independently, the technical areas covered by the two societies are tightly and undeniably intertwined. In fact, in most problems, it is impossible to tell where the signal processing ends and the communications technology begins, and vice versa. Driven in part by recent advances in cross-layer network design, there is nowadays considerable cross-fertilization between SPS and the communication networks community at the intersection of COMSOC and the Information Theory (IT) Society. The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (TC) of SPS is dedicated to exploring and illuminating the connections between these rapidly growing fields within the larger IEEE organization. Our technical interests include:
The SPCOM Technical Committee is seeking nominations for its annual membership election. The TC is seeking technically strong, committed candidates with a broad perspective on fields of signal processing, communication systems, and networks.
For the election in 2016, for the term January 2017 to December 2019, we have 16 open positions.
When considering nominating candidates for election to the TC, we would like you to consider our priorities for this year:
