The Latest News, Articles, and Events in Signal Processing

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) aims at illuminating and exploring signal processing challenges in communications and networking. The SPCOM TC is pleased to welcome several new members, and thank three retiring members for their contribution. The SPCOM TC joined forces with the SAM TC joined forces in organizing two joint sessions at ICASSP 2010. The TC's flagship event is the IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC). This year's SPAWC10 will be held June 20-23, 2010, in Marrakech, Morocco.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society organizes approximately twenty conferences, symposia and workshops each year. The Conference Board of the Society, chaired by SPS Vice President for Conferences, V. John Mathews, oversees all aspects of the conferences. The Board is currently engaged in an in-depth study of how to best enhance the quality, access and services for Society conferences. Learn more about the vision and new initiatives on Society conferences from his in-depth article.

On behalf of the Awards Board and the Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS), Michael Zoltowski in his role as Vice President - Awards and Membership announced the winners of the 2009 SPS major awards. These SPS members will receive the prestigious awards during ICASSP 2010 in Dallas, Texas.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) invites nominations for the positions of Director-Industrial Relations and Director-Membership Services. The term for each Director position will be three years (1 January 2011-31 December 2013).

IEEE THEMES (Thematic Meetings in Signal Processing) is a new joint initiative of the Conference Board and the Publication Board of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The first THEMES will be held on March 15, 2010 in Dallas. This event’s theme is “Signal and Information Processing for Social Networking," featuring eight papers and presentations by senior authors selected by a rigorous review process. Registration is now open, and options are available for onsite attendance and online virtual participation.

The first IEEE International Conference on Signal and Image Processing Applications (ICSIPA09) was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on November 18 -19, 2009. Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant city situated in the heart of peninsular Malaysia surrounded by scenic mountains with tropical weather suitable for vacation. ICSIPA09 was a unique conference that brought members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society together with researchers from allied fields such as remote sensing, communications and bioinformatics. The conference theme focused on the theory, methods and algorithms, and applications of signal processing and image processing.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society invites nominations for the positions of Editor-in-Chief for the journals IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.
