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

September 2015

For our September 2015 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Resource Management. The section below covers patents granted recently for various forecasting, modeling and evaluation solutions approached via resource management.

Follow the links on the right side of this page to view more news around IEEE.

This month's featured IEEE News source is IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter.

The August edition of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter is live and covers microgrid and smart grid technology developments in Taiwan, China, and Japan.

Chapter Dates Distinguished Lecturer Lecture Details
Croatia September 8, 2015 Alex Kot (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) Lecture topic: "Image Forensics: is a photo worth a thousand words?". Contact chapter chair Miroslav Vrankic for more information..
Estonia September 15, 2015

As a special benefit to IEEE members for the month of August, IEEE-USA will offer “Work-Life Balance -- Book 2,” by Peggy Hutcheson. In “Book 1,” Hutcheson introduced some of the major issues that lead to varying degrees of balance in a person's sense of satisfaction in life. In “Book 2,” she explores work-life balance, with regard to career stages -- young professional, mid-career, and late career. Available 1 August to 15 September.

IEEE Future Directions is your resource to emerging technologies within IEEE. The team has identified specific technologies as primary focus areas and has established them as formal initiatives to engage IEEE and the general public. For each initiative, you can find a wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities to participate. Visit each featured portal for access to upcoming conferences, news articles, technical papers, related standards, professional organizations, and academic programs.

Overview

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.

Access the application here.

Funding Priorities

The IEEE MGA vTools team is happy to announce successful new releases for the following vTools applications:

The IEEE Humanitarian Ad Hoc Committee (HAHC) is tasked with supporting the IEEE Board-endorsed vision of IEEE volunteers around the world carrying out and/or supporting impactful humanitarian activities at the local level, i.e., “feet on the ground.” HAHC is currently soliciting proposals for humanitarian projects that are aligned with this vision.

The committee will review proposals and grant awards between US$20,000 and US$100,000.

Project activities to be funded by the grant must be completed by the end of calendar year 2015 to be considered.

The listing of committee members and upcoming events for geographic units is now available as a feed to IEEE geographic unit websites.
