Activity Report from the DISPS Technical Committee

Warren GrossContributed by Warren Gross (DISPS TC Vice Chair and Liaison to eNews)

The Design and Implementation of Signal Processing Systems Technical Committee (DISPS TC) has the mission "to promote and support activities of the IEEE Signal Processing Society in the areas of: i) Design, development and implementation of signal processing systems; ii) Design of algorithms with implementation in mind and iii) the Design of software tools and methodologies to support the design of signal processing systems".

The TC holds two meetings a year. One is held in the spring at the flagship conference of the Signal Processing Society, the International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (IEEE ICASSP), and one is held in the autumn at the TC’s Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (IEEE SiPS). The TC organizes the annual SiPS workshop, as well as the reviews of papers for both SiPS and the DISPS tracks of ICASSP. In addition, the TC takes part in nominations for Signal Processing Society awards and provides representation in various society bodies such as the Conference Board and Education Committee.

The technical committee currently has 36 Members, an Advisory Board, and Affiliate Members. Members of the TC are expected to attend TC meetings and participate in paper reviews. There will be openings for election of new Members in September 2012. More information about the requirements for membership and the procedures for nomination are available on the TC’s membership webpage.

Members of the TC are active on the Editorial Boards of journals sponsored by the Signal Processing Society. Lei Wang (University of Connecticut, USA), Seok-Jun Lee (Texas Instruments, USA, Tokunbo Ogunfunmi (Santa Clara University, USA) and Mohammad Mansour (American University of Beirut, Lebanon) recently started terms as Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters. Zhiyuan Yan (Lehigh University, USA) has started a term as Area Editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, and will also serve as Associate Editor.

The TC was represented at the DISPS track of ICASSP 2012 in Kyoto, Japan. A total of 30 papers were organized in one lecture session and two poster sessions.

In October 2012, the TC’s Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (IEEE SiPS 2012) will be held in Quebec City, Canada. Information about the conference and paper submission is available at the SiPS 2012 webpage.

Tokunbo Ogunfunmi (Santa Clara University, USA) will be giving a tutorial at the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (IEEE ISCAS 2012) on “Advances in Speech Coding, Speech Recognition, and Applications”.

A workshop on Emerging Data Storage Technologies will be held at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC 2012). Co-chairs are Warren Gross (McGill University, Canada), Kui Cai (Data Storage Institute, Singapore) and Alex Dimakis (University of Southern California, USA).

A special issue for the Hindawi Journal of VLSI on “Emerging and Alternate Architectures for VLSI Signal Processing” is accepting papers. The Guest Editors are Manish Goel (Texas Instruments, USA), Dejan Markovic, (University of California, Los Angeles USA), Naveen Verma (Princeton University, USA) and Zhengya Zhang (University of Michigan, USA).
