ICASSP Speaker Highlights

ICASSP2010: The 35th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) was held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel, Texas, USA, March 14 – 19, 2010. ICASSP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications. The conference featured world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and over 120 lecture and poster sessions on a host of topics.

Four plenary talks are included in the ICASSP2010 Event Showcase at IEEE.tv, including:

ICASSP1_Schafer PLEN-1: A Celebration of the Science and Technology of DSP, by Ronald W. Schafer, Hewlett-Packard Laboratories
124699_Akay PLEN-2: Advances in Neural Engineering, by Metin Akay, University of Houston
124693-Truchard PLEN-3: Extending Signal Processing into New Application Areas, by James Truchard, National Instruments
124696-Amin PLEN-4: Recent Advances in Radar Imaging of Building Interiors, by Moeness Amin, Villanova University

The featured ICASSP2010 Keynote was Ronald Schafer’s presentation (ICASSP 2010 - Science and Technology of DSP) celebrating the past progress and making assumptions about what the future might hold for the field of DSP. Dr. Shafer is one of the world’s leading authorities on digital signal processing. As a HP Fellow at HP Labs he is focusing on problems of acoustic signal processing for audio communication and entertainment.

IEEE Themes Speaker Highlights

IEEE-THEMES 2010: IEEE-THEMES (IEEE-Thematic Meetings in Signal Processing) is a new joint initiative of the Conference Board and the Publication Board of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (cf. eNews July 2009). The first THEMES was held on March 15, 2010 in Dallas, a one day conjunction with ICASSP2010 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas, USA. IEEE-THEMES is organized in a single track to cover intensively one focus area each meeting. IEEE-THEMES 2010 focused on “Signal and Information Processing for Social Networks” (cf. eNews Feb 2010). For IEEE-THEMES 2010, over forty submissions were received and undergone a thorough review process similar to those of papers that are submitted to IEEE Transactions and Journals. The best eight papers were selected for presentation at THEMES and inclusion in a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Special Topics in Signal Processing (cf. eNews Feb 2010).


The keynote speaker of THEMES 2010, Vwani Roychowdhury, discusses the Science of Social Networking: Mining, Modeling, and Monetizing the Social Media Revolution.  Dr. Roychowdhury is an internationally recognized researcher and esteemed professor at the University of California Los Angeles.

Seven author presentations are also included in the IEEE-THEMES2010 Event Showcase at IEEE.tv. The list of papers to be presented at THEMES can be found online.
