News from the Signal Processing for Communications and Networking (SPCOM)-TC

Contributed by Tim Davidson (Chair, SPCOM TC)

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) promotes activities that illuminate and explore signal processing challenges in communications and networking. These activities take place at the interfaces between the IEEE Signal Processing (SPS), Communications (COMSOC), and Information Theory (IT) Societies.

The main workshop of the SPCOM TC is the IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC), which is devoted to recent advances in signal processing for wireless and mobile communications, information and network theory. The 15th edition of SPAWC was held in Toronto, Canada, in June 2014 ( With a keynote address from Jianglei Ma, plenary talks from Nihar Jindal, Frank Kschischang, Upamanyu Madhow, and Thomas Marzetta, an industrial panel session, 18 poster sessions, two soirées and a banquet, all held at Hart House at the University of Toronto, SPAWC 2014 was, in the tradition of SPAWCs of the past, a truly engaging forum for the exchange of ideas on the development of future wireless communication systems. It is our pleasure to announce that the 16th edition of SPAWC ( will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, from 28 June to 1 July 2015. We encourage you to add this event to your conference calendar. The deadline for paper submissions is 2 March 2015.

The SPCOM TC is currently seeking nominations of technically strong members of the Society who have a broad perspective on the interactions between signal processing and communication systems and networks for its annual election. This year there will be 5 open positions. The details of the nomination process can be found on the TC’s web site (

The SPCOM TC maintains a job opportunities ( website. We invite you to consider posting any job openings or post-doc positions that your organization may have. For this and other information, please visit the SPCOM TC webpage (
