10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

July 2015

The SPS Awards Board is now accepting nominations for the new IEEE SPS Industrial Leader Award and IEEE SPS Industrial Innovation Award.

The Nominations and Appointments Subcommittee for each Technical Committee is currently seeking nominations for new Members, as well as the Vice Chair position for some Technical Committees. Nominations for both positions should be submitted directly to each Technical Committee’s Nominations and Appointments Subcommittee. Please provide the name, contact information and biography with the nomination.

The Signal Processing Society (SPS) has 12 technical committees and three Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that support a broad selection of signal processing related activities defined by the scope of the Society. Technical Committees and SIGs are actively involved in awards, conferences, publications, and educational activities, and provide technical advice to the Society’s leadership.

The Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has allocated $40,000 for Member-Driven Initiatives for the 2015 calendar year. The funding is open to all Signal Processing Society members, Chapters and Committees. However, all proposals must include the involvement of the local Chapter. Allocation of funds will be competitive.

Funding Priorities

The Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) promotes and guides the advancement of the field of image, video, and multidimensional signal processing. It provides leadership for the technical programs for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; recruits and volunteers reviewers for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; assists in proposing and organizing ICIP; organizes and operates IVMSP workshops and sessions at ICIP and ICASSP; and participates in a range of other SPS activities.

For our July 2015 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with various applications of adaptive filtering. The section below covers patents granted recently for reducing blocking effect and ringing noise, radio frequency spektrum analysis, filter bank implementation, signal amplifying, low complexity filtering, magnetic fluid analysis, signal canceling and filter representation.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks applications that propose research studies that extend experimental protocols beyond the range of acoustic psychophysical research studies widely performed today. This will require design of algorithms and research studies that validate the potential benefits from these novel approaches to acoustic signal processing.
