SPS Announces 2020 Class of Distinguished Lecturers and Distinguished Industry Speakers

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) announced the 2020 Class of Distinguished Lecturers and Distinguished Industry Speakers for the term of 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2021, which are noted below.  The IEEE SPS Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Program provides a means for Chapters to have access to well-known educators and authors in the fields of signal processing to lecture at Chapter meetings. While many IEEE Societies have similar programs, the SPS provides a substantial amount of financial support for the Chapters to take advantage of this service.

Five colleagues were honored with the appointment of Distinguished Lecturer and they are: 

Andrea Cavallaro (Queen Mary University of London), Gaurav Sharma (University of Rochester), Ami Wiesel (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Xiao-Ping Zhang (Ryerson University), Qing Zhao (Cornell University). 

The Distinguished Industry Speaker (DIS) Program provides means for chapters to have access to individuals who are recognized experts with a background in industrial applications in the signal processing area and are well versed in the ongoing issues/activities in industry, to lecture at Chapter meetings.  Distinguished Industry Speakers will supplement the regular Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Program and will closely mirror the DL Program.  The main difference and goal of the Distinguished Industry Speakers Program is to educate and interact with Society members about topics that are of primary importance to industry and the signal processing community-at-large.  The speakers will focus their presentations on industrial applications of interest to practicing engineers, stress practical issues and/or activities in industry.  The Distinguished Industry Speakers will be available to all SPS Chapters, as are DLs.  While many IEEE Societies have similar programs, the SPS provides a substantial amount of financial support for the Chapters to take advantage of this service.

Five colleagues were honored with the appointment of Distinguished Industry Speaker and they are:  Mehrdad Fatourechi (BroadbandTV Corp), Aris Gkoulalas-Divanis (IBM Watson Health), Joseph Guerci (Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.), Karthik Nandakumar (IBM Singapore Lab), Akihiko Sugiyama (Yahoo! Japan Research).

Chapters interested in arranging lectures by the Distinguished Lecturer and/or Distinguished Industry Speaker can obtain information from the Society’s web page or by sending an e-mail message to <sp.info@ieee.org>.
