News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

July 2014

The following SPS Distinguished lectures will be held in the upcoming months

The IEEE Signal Processing Society welcomes proposals from prospective organizers of 2014 winter schools under the S3P (Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing) Program. S3P seasonal schools are typically either summer schools or winter schools, and are geared towards providing graduate students, early stage researchers, and practitioners with background on selected topics in signal processing.

We would like to bring to your attention two articles from the IEEE Pulse Magazine that we believe will be of interest to Signal Processing Society members

IEEE recently introduced the Student Transition and Elevation Partnership (STEP), a program designed to facilitate the seamless transition from IEEE Student member to young professional by emphasizing the value of IEEE membership at the onset of a STEP career. Through STEP activities and IEEE’s educational and professional resources, we strive to inspire students to consider IEEE membership as an asset during the beginning stages of their careers.

Through 1 August 2014, IEEE-USA is offering graduating student members three free e-Books from its Engineers' Guide to Lifelong Employability series, as well as five complimentary uses of their salary calculator. Please check here for more details.

As a special benefit to IEEE members, IEEE-USA is providing members with one complimentary E-Book each month. Through 30 June, members can download at no charge Career Planning Guide: How to Achieve Greater Satisfaction and Impact at Work. Check your email in-box for this month's Today's Engineer Email Update for the download link.

The following signal processing-related books were published in the last month

Multi-dimensional Imaging
(Bahram Javidi, Enrique Tajahuerce, Pedro Andres), published at Wiley, details here

OFDM for Underwater Acoustic Communications
(Shengli Zhou, Zhaohui Wang), published at Wiley, details here

This third-year undergraduate course concerns theory, algorithms, simulation and real-time implementation of digital signal processing systems. This course emphasizes design tradeoffs in signal quality vs. implementation complexity in signal processing algorithms. Students map signal processing theory to signal processing algorithms to desktop simulation in Matlab to embedded real-time software in C. Applications focus on communication systems but also include audio and image processing. The open courseware for the spring 2014 offering of this course by Prof.

Zhou Li Indiana University”Understanding and detecting malicious web activities”, Advisor: Wang XiaoFeng, 2014

Chao Jia (The University of Texas at Austin), “Video Stabilization and Rectification for Handheld Cameras”, Advisor: Prof. Brian L. Evans (2014)
