Call for Proposals: 2023 Cycle 1 Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing

Seasonal Schools and Member Driven Initiatives in Signal Processing

2023 Cycle 1 proposals being accepted now!

Are you looking for innovative ways to energize and collaborate with your local signal processing community? Consider hosting a Seasonal School or Member Driven Initiative!

The proposal period is now open for IEEE Signal Processing Society Seasonal Schools and Member Driven Initiatives for events to be held between April 2023 and September 2023.

Event organizers are encouraged to provide hybrid accommodations for individuals who cannot attend physical events. Travel must adhere to the IEEE Travel Guidelines and to appropriate guidance from cognizant local public health authorities.

We are pleased to offer up to US$3,000 of support for virtual events or $5,000 for physical events, on an application basis, to help offset the cost of the workshops and conferences.

Seasonal Schools

  • Provides attendees with specialized background in select signal processing topics.
  • Professors and established practitioners work with attendees in virtual tutorials and applications.
  • Building meaningful collaborative relationships.


  • Networking events with topics of interest to industry members.
  • Panel sessions, and presentations or lectures by industry experts.
  • Content should be created based on interest to industry.
  • Cannot include papers for publication.

Regional Meetings

  • Local high quality technical events (such as local workshops or small conferences) aimed to serve the local or regional community.
  • Target themes of interest to SPS members.
  • Can include conference paper publications.

Chapter Initiatives

  • Initiatives are interactive events designed to provide attendees with specialized background in select signal processing topics.
  • Chapter-centered events for practicing engineers.
  • Chapter meeting featuring industry executive.
  • Outreach to get students at primary schools interested in signal processing.
  • Design competitions or other ideas. 

Submit your Virtual Seasonal Schools Proposal Today!

Proposals for Cycle 1 Member Driven Initiatives and Seasonal Schools are due 3 February 2023, with final decisions announced in mid-March.
