SPS Announces 2021 Class of Distinguished Lecturers and Distinguished Industry Speakers

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) announces the 2021 Class of Distinguished Lecturers and Distinguished Industry Speakers for the term of 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022, 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: 

Pier Luigi Dragotti (Imperial College London), Karen Livescu (Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago), Venkatesh Saligrama (Boston University), Dimitri Van De Ville (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne), and Dong Xu (University of Sydney, Australia). 

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:  

Achintya K. (Achin) Bhowmik (Starkey Hearing Technologies), Chienchung Chang (Qualcomm Technologies), Mérouane Debbah (Huawei France Research Center), Dilek Hakkani-Tür (Amazon Alexa AI), and Xiaodong He (JD.COM Inc.).

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>.
