News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

News & Announcements

All Section officers and Chapter/Affinity Group chairs have been contacted with a reminder that the following annual reports are required to be eligible for a rebate:

In 2014, the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) volunteers and staff proactively worked to ensure that the Society support its members, products, and services with speed and efficiency.

The work paid off, though, and it is apparent through a host of accomplishments we made throughout 2014. In June, SPS had its five-year Society Review with the Technical Activities Board (TAB) Society Review Committee. The review went extremely well, and the Committee praised and highlighted many areas in membership, publications, conferences, and operations.

Now IEEE SPS has built a streamlined mechanism for employers to add a job announcement by simply filling in a simple job opportunity submission Web form at the related TC section pages.

To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and clicking on a particular TC. A link for the form can be found in the sidebar menu of the TC pages. Jobs can also be viewed from its individual TC pages or a combined listing that includes all TC jobs.

Nominations are due 31 January 2015 for the IEEE Technical Field Awards (TFA). IEEE TFAs are awarded for contributions or leadership in a specific field of interest of the IEEE and are among the highest awards presented on behalf of the IEEE Board of Directors.

Each year, the IEEE Board of Directors confers the grade of Fellow on up to one-tenth of one percent of the members. To qualify for consideration, an individual must have been a Member, normally for five years or more, and a Senior Member at the time for nomination to Fellow. The grade of Fellow recognizes unusual distinction in IEEE’s designated fields.

The Signal Processing Society congratulates the following 51 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2015:

This past November, longtime IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) member and IEEE Fellow Dr. Thomas Kailath received the National Medal of Science in Washington, DC. U.S. President Barack Obama presented the award to Dr. Kailath "for transformative contributions to the fields of information and system science, for distinctive and sustained mentoring of young scholars, and for translation of scientific ideas into entrepreneurial ventures that have had a significant impact on industry."

IEEE has announced the recipients of the 2015 IEEE medals. Three Signal Processing Society members were awarded with IEEE medals for 2015: James Julius Spilker (IEEE Edison Medal), Harry L. Van Trees (IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal) and Richard Gordon Baranuik (IEEE James H. Mulligan, Jr. Education Medal).

Welcome to the Winter 2014 edition of the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee's Newsletter! This issue of the newsletter includes 8 articles and announcements from 10 contributors, including our own staff reporters and editors. Thank you all for your contributions! This issue includes news about IEEE journals and recent workshops, SLTC call for nominations, and individual contributions.
