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

October 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.

The invention of the automobile transformed how people live, work, and interact in society. Today, with an ever increasing number of in-vehicle options/activities, as well as the increasing demands being placed on the driver, vehicle platform, and transportation infrastructure, more is being asked of engineers, designers, scientists, and transportation specialists.

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.

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

WIE-Ericsson Live Chat Series

Registration is now open for IEEEXtreme 9.0, scheduled for 24 October 2015. IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members, supported by an IEEE Student Branch, advised and proctored by an IEEE member, compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems. The registration deadline is 12 October.

vTools.Voting

Just in time for 2016 officer elections, the vTools team has made some improvements to vTools.Voting to reduce confusion and enhance the user experience. Without listing every change, URLs have been corrected, date fields will be validated, more help text has been added, a sample email message has been provided, and the dashboard has been streamlined and sorted.

Sections, Chapters, and Affinity groups can expect a 15-50% response rate, which gives you greater insight as to what your members want.

The forms to petition MGA and other organizational units for the approval of new geographic units have recently been updated.

The forms are used to propose the formation of a Section, Subsection, Geographic Council, Chapter, Affinity Group, Student Branch, Student Branch Chapter, or Student Branch Affinity Group. Updates to the forms include making the signature form page one, clarification and emphasis on the eligibility requirements, and updated resource links for when a petition organizer needs additional information.

As of Sunday, 16 August, anyone joining IEEE becomes a member for the 2016 membership year.

This is a valuable time to promote IEEE membership.

Anyone joining now will receive the remainder of 2015 at no additional cost.

Email Nicole Dewhurst, Member and Geographic Activities, at n.dewhurst@ieee.org for more information on how you can incorporate a "join" message in your communications
