The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) was recently awarded the IEEE Educational Activities Board’s Society/Council Professional Development Award "for innovative educational and professional development programs that engage professionals, students and the general public in signal processing.”
When President Rabab Ward accepted the award on behalf of our Society at the IEEE Meeting Series last month in New Brunswick, NJ, she noted, “This is an incredible achievement for SPS and our members. This recognition would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers who offer their time to ensure these programs are successful.”
The Society/Council Professional Development Award recognizes IEEE societies and councils for “major contributions to professional development of its members through outstanding products, services, and support in the areas of life-long learning, continuing education and professional development." Our Society made significant strides in these areas with the development of SigPort (e.g., an online repository of manuscripts, reports, technical white papers, theses and supporting materials), unveiling the brand-new SPS Resource Center, and expanded offerings to our Student, Graduate Student, and young professional members, especially over the past few years.
We’re proud of our enhanced resources and offerings, and welcome feedback from our community on how we can continue to ensure we’re serving your needs. For more information about the award or SPS, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to hearing from you!
