10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

January 2010

The IEEE Division IX Division-Director Nominating Committee invites nominations for the position of Division IX Director. Division Directors are elected to the IEEE Board by members of Societies they represent.  They first serve as Directors-elect before becoming Directors and Members of the IEEE Board.  Division Directors represent the membership of his/her Division in the IEEE Assembly as a voting delegate.

In accordance with the Bylaws of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the membership will elect, by direct ballot, THREE Members-at-Large to the Board of Governors (BoG) for three-year terms commencing 1 January 2011 and ending 31 December 2013, as well as ONE Regional Director-at-Large each for the corresponding regions: Regions 1-6 (US), Regions 7 and 9 (Canada and Latin America), Region 8 (Europe/Middle East/Africa) and Region 10 (Asia/Pacific Rim) for two-year terms commencing 1 January 2011 and ending 31 December 2012.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society congratulates the following 38 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2010:

Four SPS members have been selected to receive prestigious IEEE Medals in 2010. They are: Ray Dolby (Dolby Laboratories, Inc., San Francisco, CA) for the IEEE Edison Medal; John M. Cioffi (Stanford University, Stanford, CA) for the IEEE Alexander Graham Bell Medal; Ronald Schafer (Hewlett Packard, Palo Alto, CA) for the IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal; and Alfonso Farina (SELEX-Sistemi Integrati, Rome, Italy) for the IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal for Radar Technologies and Applications.

Applications are invited from outstanding undergraduate students not yet in their final year of studies to undertake 10-week research projects in Autonomous Robotics at National University of Ireland - Maynooth, Ireland.

The goal of the Summer Internships in Autonomous Robotics (SIAR) is to engage students in research projects which focus on the technological issues surrounding autonomous humanoid robotic soccer.  The program is funded by Science Foundation Ireland through the UREKA (Undergraduate Research Experience & Knowledge Award) Program.

The Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP TC) successfully organized the 2009 MMSP Workshop in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, marking a milestone for the first time one of the major IEEE Signal Processing Society events being held in Latin America. Planning is underway for MMSP 2010, which will be held in Saint-Malo, France. The TC also invites proposals to organize the 2011 MMSP Workshop. Another major effort in 2009 that the MMSP TC is actively engaged in was to revitalize the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) jointly organized by four IEEE societies. The TC welcomes a new Chair and eight newly elected members in January 2010.

Recently DISPS TC members organized the first special issue devoted to the important emerging topic of multicore design and implementation of signal processing systems on IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. The TC sponsors Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (SiPS) -- the 2009 edition was successfully held in Tampere, Finland, and the 2010 edition is calling for papers and participation.

IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing seeks applicants for the position of Editor-in-Chief serving a three-year term.  The Steering Committee of the Transactions invites applications, which should be sent to Tom LaPorta <tlp AT cse.psu.edu> by 1 March 2010.

In September 2009, USA Today and other media outlets have reported a successful servicing mission to the Hubble Space telescope. The In-the-Spotlight column in the January 2010 issue of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine provided a closer look at the imaging sensors and the associated processing and control mechanisms in the Hubble and its successor.
