The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) promotes and guides the advancement of the field of image, video, and multidimensional signal processing. It provides leadership for the technical programs for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; recruits and volunteers reviewers for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; assists in proposing and organizing ICIP; organizes and operates IVMSP workshops and sessions at ICIP and ICASSP; and participates in a range of other SPS activities.
This year, IVMSP TC has continued its key role in overseeing the organization, reviewing process and the technical program of the ICIP and ICASSP conferences, and provided core reviewing by volunteer TC members. ICASSP-2019 was held in Brighton, United Kingdom, from May 12th to 17th. ICASSP received over 3400 submissions and the final technical programme included 1706 presentations of high-quality papers. The technical program also featured 5 plenary lectures given by prominent speakers, 11 tutorials, as well as 30 selected special sessions from diverse signal processing areas. The technical programme was complemented by demos, professional activities, and other exciting events. The conference was attended by over 3100 attendees, making it the largest ever ICASSP.
This year, ICIP is returning to Asia and takes place in Taipei, Taiwan, from September 22nd to 25th. We look forward to it.
A major addition to the IVMSP TC webpage has been completed over the summer. With the help of operations and web administration staff at SPS, a list of past members of the committee has now been made available online. The new webpage lists all members, including those who served the committee under its previous name, “Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing TC”, which began in 1981. The list is a compelling record, which shows the long history of the TC. In posting online its historical membership record, the committee publicly acknowledges the efforts and contributions of all volunteer members who served it over the years.
IVMSP TC welcomes participation from all members of the SPS technical community interested in the TC areas. Affiliate membership within the TC is open to all, and you are encouraged to sign up. For additional information, please visit the TC website.
