News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

September 2015

IEEE Day 2015 will be held on Tuesday, 6 October. This will be the sixth anniversary of IEEE members celebrating the anniversary of the first time IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884.

Since the first IEEE Day event in 2010, the number of events worldwide has grown over 600%, from 80 to over 520! The IEEE Day team needs you to help grow this annual event even larger.

IEEE has launched the IEEE in 2030 Challenge with the goal of finding innovative, creative, and potentially disruptive approaches that will help engineers and technical professionals working in industry. The IEEE New Initiatives Committee will be awarding small seed grants (US$40,000 or less) to those projects that are selected.

There once was a time when traveling abroad seemed an exotic experience, suited for the heads of business or well-to-do families on vacation. Now traveling abroad is a way of the world. Professionals, students and families often travel several times a year for business and pleasure. As common as international travel is, many still do not understand the insurance coverages needed in order to be protected.

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is pleased to announce some exciting upcoming events and opportunities:

WIE Live Chat Series

Upcoming live chats include:

  • “Detour: Coping When Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan,” presented by Courtney Clark - Tuesday, 18 August 2015, 10:00 a.m. ET

International Leadership Conference

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is honored to announce the elevation of 21 of its members to the grade of IEEE Senior Member. These members have demonstrated outstanding professional performance, exhibited professional maturity through long-term experience, and established themselves as leaders in their respective IEEE-designated fields of interest. Senior Member is the only membership grade that is eligible to be nominated for IEEE Fellow.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society is happy to announce the addition of several new Chapters and Student Branch Chapters. We welcome the following SPS Chapters and wish them great success in their future activities and events:
