Activity Update from the SPTM TC

Sergios Theodoridisby Sergios Theodoridis (Chair of the SPTM TC)

The Signal Processing Theory and Methods Technical Committee (SPTM TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (IEEE-SPS) promotes activities within the technical areas of DSP and statistical signal processing theory and methods. The scope of SPTM has a broad span ranging from digital filtering and adaptive signal processing to statistical signal analysis, estimation and detection.


This year’s ICASSP, to be taken place in Florence, has received a record of submissions. 283 of the papers to be presented are related to the SPTM. The number of papers per subtopic, according to the SPTM EDICS, is as follows:

  • Sampling and Reconstruction: 126
  • System and Signal Modeling and Estimation: 62
  • Statistical Signal Processing: 183
  • Adaptive Signal Processing: 44
  • Nonlinear Signals and Systems: 16
  • Digital and Multirate Signal Processing: 35
  • Signal Processing over Graphs: 36
  • Sparsity-Aware Processing: 123
  • Optimization Tools: 42
  • Signal Processing on Networks: 46

Note that these numbers do not add to 283, since a number of papers belonged to more than one EDICS category. From the above rough statistics, it is readily seen that Statistical SP is still the topic with the largest number of papers. Yet Sparsity and Compressed Sensing/Sampling have significantly increased their portion. Compared to last year, there is a substantial increase of papers in the areas of SP over graphs and SP on Networks.
