News from the SPCOM-TC

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) promotes activities addressing signal processing challenges in communications and networking. It can be placed at the point at which the IEEE Signal Processing (SPS), Communications (COMSOC), and Information Theory (IT) Societies overlap.

In 2011, a new election mechanism for SPCOM TC membership was approved. The SPCOM TC gives a warm welcome to three new members: Urbashi Mitra from the University of Southern California, USA; Gesualdo Scutari from the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA; and Rui Zhang from the National University of Singapore. Additionally, the membership of Dirk Slock and Shuguang (Robert) Cui have been renewed. We would like to thank retiring members Athanasios Liavas, Luc Vandendorpe and Qing Zhao for their valuable contributions, as well as Past Chair Geert Leus who is stepping down after ten years of invaluable service to SPCOM TC.

The SPCOM TC is active with the annual IEEE SPS flagship conference, the International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP’12). At this year's ICASSP in Kyoto, Japan, there are five lecture sessions and seven poster sessions related to the SPCOM track. In addition, the SPCOM TC joined forces with the Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) and Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM) Technical Committees in order to organize four joint sessions at ICASSP'12.

The main workshop of the SPCOM TC is the IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC), which will take place this year June 17-20, 2012, in Çesme, Turkey, co-chaired by Hakan Deliç from Bogaziçi University of Istanbul, Turkey and Georgios B. Giannakis from University of Minnesota, USA. Plenary talks will be given by Ali Abur, Tim Davidson, Christina Fragouli, Syed Jafar, and Ali N. Akansu. We encourage you to join us for a great technical and social event at SPAWC12 in Çesme.

The SPCOM TC maintains a job opportunities website. We would like you to consider submitting a post to our website with any job openings or postdoc positions that your organization may have. For this and other information, please visit the SPCOM TC webpage.
