The Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing (S3P) Program was established in 2010 specifically for graduate students, early stage researchers and practitioners with organized opportunities to build communities with professors and established practitioners and engage in hands-on tutorials in signal processing.

Seasonal Schools are typically either summer or winter schools with a primary objective in membership development for students interested in signal processing. Since students are the future of the Society, it is essential to provide special membership development opportunities for young members.

Timeline for Seasonal Schools

Winter schools are held between 1 October through 31 March, while Summer Schools are held 1 April through 30 September. A call for proposals will be sent to all SPS members and posted to the SPS website and social media channels.

Current Call for Proposals

Current, active call for proposals and important due dates can be found on the Call for Proposals page.

Additional objectives of the seasonal school program include:

  • Building awareness of Signal Processing Society and technical committee activities.
  • Building communities of Ph.D. students and educators in important signal processing research areas.
  • Engaging local chapters in membership development and educational activities.
  • Linking distinguished lecturers to relevant membership development activities.
  • Providing hands-on tutorial sessions, where students can experiment with concepts and methods. The degree to which hands-on sessions are employed will in general depend on the seasonal school theme, and the objectives of the organizers.
  • Evolution of high quality tutorial materials that can be disseminated online to the larger signal processing community.
