Activity update of the SAM TC

By Marco Lops, Christoph Mecklenbräuker, and Marius Pesavento.

The SAM TC addresses the areas of sensor array and multi-channel statistical signal processing. The committee interests span the areas of signal detection and estimation, direction-of-arrival estimation, beamforming, blind source separation, source localization and tracking, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems and space-time coding, sensor networks, and multichannel signal processing. Our main application areas are focused on radar, sonar, wireless communications, microphone array processing, navigation, seismology, radio astronomy, and biomedicine. Visit the SAM TC website to learn more. Some details regarding many of the issues presented here are available in the SAM TC Newsletter.


Following the success of the first four editions of the IEEE workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Channel Sensor Array Processing, the General Co-Chairs Aleksandar Dogandžic and Martin Haardt are pleased to announce the fifth workshop in this series, sponsored by the Sensor Array and Multi-channel (SAM) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. CAMSAP 2013 will be held on December 15-18, 2013 at the Radisson Blu Resort, Marina & Spa in Saint Martin, a French-Dutch island in the Caribbean.
As in previous years the workshop will feature a number of plenary talks from the world’s leading researchers in the area, including Lang Tong, Alfred O. Hero III, Lieven De Lathauwer, Thomas Strohmer, and Björn Ottersten, as well as a number of special focus sessions, and contributed papers. All papers will undergo peer review in order to provide feedback to the authors and ensure a high-quality program. Special session proposals are warmly welcome. Looking forward to welcoming your next year in Saint Martin!
More information is available on the workshop's website.

Vice-Chair election

During Fall 2012, the Sensor Array and Multi-channel (SAM) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society has held elections for the position of Vice-Chair. The Nominations and Elections Subcommittee (Olivier Besson, Biao Chen and Visa Koivunen) have organized the voting procedures.
Peter Willett is elected to be the Vice-Chair of the SAM TC starting in January 2013.

Member election

During Fall 2012, the Sensor Array and Multi-channel (SAM) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society has elected 12 members starting their terms in 2013 as follows:

  • Chong-Yung CHI, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan
  • Maria Sabrina GRECO, University of Pisa, Italy
  • Yingbo HUA, University of California, Riverside, USA
  • Marco LOPS, University of Cassino, Italy, and Invited Professor at INP Toulouse, France
  • Xavier MESTRE, Centre Tecnològic de Telecommunicaciones de Catalunya, Spain
  • Philip SCHNITER, Ohio State University, USA
  • Steven T. SMITH, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, USA
  • A. Lee SWINDLEHURST, University of California, Irvine, USA
  • Joseph TABRIKIAN, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel
  • Ami WIESEL, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
  • Kainam Thomas WONG, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
  • Rui ZHANG, National University of Singapore, Singapore

All of the six first term finishing members are elected for the second term. Congratulations to Sabrina, Yingbo, Macro, Steven, Lee and Joseph!
Among the six new members, three (Chong-Yung, Kainam and Rui) are from Region 10. These colleagues increase the diversity and geographical coverage of the SAM TC members which has been a long term goal of the SAM TC.
