Call for Proposal - SPS Challenge Program

As a service to the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) community, the SPS Challenge Program offers support to challenge organizers by:
  • providing an organizational framework for a five-stage process from the proposal to the dissemination of results.
  • granting official SPS sponsorship to approved SPS challenges, including use of SPS communication channels.  
  • promoting dissemination of the results by publishing challenge overview papers in the journals of SPS.

The SPS Challenge Program is operated by the Challenges and Data Collections (CDC) Committee under the IEEE SPS Technical Directions Board and as such reflects a joint effort of all Technical Committees of the Society. Its fundamental goal is to:

  • to encourage and support research with comparable and reproducible results in relevant, timely and impactful signal processing tasks;
  • to identify, and to encourage the collection of, appropriate data-sets that embody those signal processing tasks and to support the sharing of such data-sets widely in the community;
  • to identify appropriate performance metrics for the relevant tasks and, where appropriate, disseminate standardized tools for computing those metrics;
  • to identify the state-of-the-art methods for such signal processing tasks and evaluate their performance comparatively on the identified data-sets; and to disseminate the results of challenges and subsequent scientific insights widely within the society and externally.
We hereby invite challenge proposals to be submitted by email to the SPS Challenge Program. Please note, if a challenge is already underway it cannot be supported by the SPS Challenge Program.
Proposal Form can be found here.
Deadline for Challenge Proposals: 24 May 2024
Notification of Acceptance: 7 June 2024
