10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is launching PROGRESS - an initiative aiming to motivate and support women and under-represented minorities to pursue academic careers in signal processing.
2020 PROGRESS Workshop (Virtual)
26-27 October 2020
Submission Deadline: 20 October 2020
Women and under-represented minorities account for only 11% of the IEEE SPS membership. SPS is determined to focus on this vast, untapped talent pool, because we believe that a more diverse research/work force is better positioned to effectively address the vexing challenges our world is facing.
Research has shown that the percentage of women and under-represented minority undergraduate and graduate science and engineering majors is strongly linked to the percentage of women and under-represented minority faculty. This is because diverse faculty can naturally serve as role models and mentors.
PROGRESS’ overall objective is to improve diversity in the field of signal processing. Towards that goal, the project will proactively motivate and prepare women and other under-represented segments of the population in signal processing to pursue academic positions. PROGRESS includes a workshop as an integral part of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) and the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) as well as follow-up surveys and mentoring teleconferences.
The PROGRESS workshop will be held during the ICASSP and ICIP weeks. It will provide the attendees with information, tools and networking opportunities.
The inaugural PROGRESS workshop will take place on October 26 and 27, 2020, during the 2020 IEEE ICIP and will be all virtual. The 2020 PROGRESS oversight committee is given below.
Highlights of the 2020 PROGRESS workshop include:
Attendance is by application only.
Graduate or Undergraduate students who are women or under-represented minorities interested in signal processing or related fields are eligible to apply.
Applicants should upload the following materials at this site.
Please note that there is a capacity limit. While all women and under-represented minority graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to apply, IEEE and SPS Members will be considered with higher priority. Information to become a member of IEEE SPS can be found at this site.
