News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

February 2016

Biomedical signals have been widely used in the clinical setting for diagnostics, guiding therapy, patient monitoring, disease prevention, and risk assessment. The special issue of Proceedings of the IEEE in Feb. 2016 comprises 12 reviews that address challenges in applicative biomedical contexts by emphasizing the relevance of the methodological problem, the clinical importance of extracted information, and the possibility for future technological developments.

The Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing (AASP) technical committee reports on augmented reality devices, 3D acoustic localization, binaural recording and rendering and spatial audio processing technologies.

The Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) technical committee reports on the upcoming IEEE SAM workshop in Rio de Janeiro, an announcement of the 2017 IEEE CAMSAP workshop, new SAM members and award nominations.
