News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

October 2009
Classical digital signal processing tells us the tale of a continuous-time primeval signal, of its brutal sampling, and of the magic sinc interpolation that, under the aegis of bandlimitedness, brings the original signal back to (continuous) life. However, it is very interesting to switch the conventional viewpoint and cast discrete-time sequences in the lead role, with continuous-time signals entering the scene as a derived version of their gap-toothed archetypes.
The “Best of the Web” column in the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine presents online resources related to bioinformatics and computational biology. Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to the field of molecular biology. The actual process of analyzing and interpreting data is referred to as computational biology. ''Best of the Web'' gathers information about tutorials and databases that are available online.
The current recession has  shed some light on the fact that signal processing techniques play an important role in today’s finances. Indeed, today’s financial analysis and risk managers depend on mathematical tools that, at their core, are based on signal processing techniques. Read the "In the Spotlight" column article by Konstantinos Drakakis in the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine.

The purpose of the IVMSP TC is to promote and guide the advancement of the field of image, video, and multidimensional signal processing. One of the TC’s most important responsibilities is overseeing the organization and the technical program, and serving as core reviewers, for the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP). The technical program for ICIP 2009, which will be held in Cairo, Egypt, in November 2009, recently been finalized with the TCs active involvement. Interested SPS members may approach a current TC member to seek nomination to join the TC during this Fall's new member election.

Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2010 and will serve until 31 December 2012. Seven candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions. The successful candidates represent a broad spectrum of the Signal Processing Society, and the Board of Governors will confirm the election results at the next meeting in November 2009. The successful candidates are: Alex Acero (Microsoft Corporation, USA), Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola (Arizona State University, USA), and Mats Viberg (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden).

The AE TC promotes the advancement of technologies and applications in audio and acoustic signal processing and to enhance interaction with similar organizations within IEEE and throughout the world. The TC is represented in several new SPS initiatives. The community around the AE-TC is looking forward to the next edition of the IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA 2009). The recent ICASSP 2009 was also a great success for the AE community and has led to an on-going Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing on "Processing reverberant speech: methodologies and applications", with manuscripts due by October 15, 2009.
