September 2017

Call for Challenges, Tutorials, Special Sessions & Papers

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging 2018 (ISBI 2018) is soliciting proposals for challenges. The goal of a challenge is to accelerate the pace of research on a demanding academic and/or clinical problem.

Webinar Details: October 17, 2017, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST.
Attending Registration Link:

Stay tuned for announcements on “Digital Signaling: Interacting Social Sensors and Social Networks” presented by Prof. Vikram Krishnamurthy. In this webinar, Prof. Krishnamurthy will discuss how humans interact over a social network and make decisions based on sensor information. 

The IEEE Signal Processing Society is excited to announce the newest project from the Women in Signal Processing (WISP) Committee - the Women in Signal Processing Directory!

For our September 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of infrared imaging and signal processing.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society welcomes proposals from prospective organizers of 2018 summer schools under the S3P (Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing) Program.  S3P seasonal schools are typically either summer schools or winter schools, and are geared towards providing graduate students, early stage researchers, and practitioners with background on selected topics in signal processing. Organizers of Signal Processing Society workshops and conferences are encouraged to submit proposals for seasonal schools linked to their event.

The Signal Processing Society, in partnership with TELUS, recently sponsored an inspiring video about a small startup team of Canadian signal processing and computer engineers who, in 1978, competed with NASA in a race to use radar to image never-before-seen parts of the earth. The video is currently airing on Air Canada flights as part of their in-flight entertainment package, and is part of an ongoing effort to increase public visibility of signal processing and the Society.

IEEE SPS has built a streamlined mechanism for employers to add a job announcement by simply filling in a simple job opportunity submission Web form related to a particular TC field. To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and selecting a particular TC. Visit the SPS Job Submission Form.

The Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has allocated $20,000 for Member-Driven Initiatives for the 2017 calendar year. The funding is open to all Signal Processing Society members, Chapters and Committees. However, all proposals must include the involvement of the local Chapter to encourage geographic development. Allocation of funds will be competitive.
