News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

September 2015

Now IEEE SPS has built a streamlined mechanism for employers to add a job announcement by simply filling in a simple job opportunity submission Web form at the related TC section pages.

To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and clicking on a particular TC. A link for the form can be found in the sidebar menu of the TC pages. Jobs can also be viewed from its individual TC pages or a combined listing that includes all TC jobs.

Please refer to the following webpage for the latest updates on upcoming conferences in Signal Processing.

JAMES L. FLANAGAN (1925 - 2015), a pioneer in the field of acoustics and signal processing died on Tuesday, August 25, at this home in Warren Township, one day shy of his 90 the next day. Flanagan’s legendary career was marked by a remarkable productivity of the highest technical and intellectual caliber. A visionary, well ahead of his time, he led the world into the present era of digital speech communications, machine learning and human-to-computer interaction.

In this series, we aim to introduce senior society members and other experts of the signal processing field. This month, we are happy to introduce Prof. Hamid Krim in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, leading the Vision, Information and Statistical Signal Theories and Applications group, whose research interests are in statistical signal and image analysis and mathematical modeling with a keen emphasis on applied problems.

The special issue of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, Sep. 2015 is focused around biometrics and privacy protection. Biometrics is the science of recognizing individuals based on their behavioral and biological characteristics such as face, fingerprints, iris, voice, gait, and signature. A typical biometric system may be viewed as a pattern classification system that utilizes advanced signal processing schemes to compare and match biometric data.

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) reports on received awards, new members and this year's IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC) that took place in Stockholm, Sweden.

K. J. Ray Liu,
SPS Nominations and Appointments Committee Chair

In accordance with the Bylaws of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, I am writing to solicit nominations for the Awards Board for the term 2016-18 and the Nominations and Appointments (N&A) Committee for the term 2016-17. This year, the Society will be filling THREE positions on the N&A Committee and TWO positions on the Awards Board. Nominations must be received no later than Thursday, 1 October 2015.

Researchers from Korea University and the Technical University of Berlin have developed a new brain-computer interface to control a lower limb exoskeleton by decoding specific signals from within the user’s brain.
