News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

News & Announcements

2015 IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing – Orlando Florida
General Chairs: José M. F. Moura and Dapeng Oliver Wu
Technical Program Chairs: Mihaela van der Schaar, Xiaodong Wang, and Hsiao-Chun Wu

In an effort to increase signal processing awareness among the general public, the IEEE Signal Processing Society has created a video to answer, in layman’s terms, the simple question: What is signal processing? Check out the video below to see the many ways in which signal processing technologies surround us in our everyday lives, allowing us to interact with ourselves, one another, and the world. Learn how communications and entertainment, security and healthcare, are all made easier, safer, accessible, and possible because of signal processing technologies. Watch the video and share!

Dear Members,

- Are you an IEEE member, IEEE student member, IEEE graduate student member or IEEE young professional member?

- Do you know one or more 12-18 year old students from within your family, friendship circle, or local school who is
interested in engineering, computing, or technology?

- Do you want to help students inspire others to learn more about these disciplines by creating an animation?

Mentor one or more students today in the IEEE Spark Innovation through Animation Competition!

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) promotes activities that illuminate and explore signal processing challenges in communications and networking. These activities take place at the interfaces between the IEEE Signal Processing (SPS), Communications (COMSOC), and Information Theory (IT) Societies.

The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) took place in Florence, Italy from May 4th – 9th 2014. Recordings of the opening ceremony and plenary sessions are now available for IEEE Signal Processing Society members on SigView the society’s online video archive and are accessible by clicking on the links below.

Conference Opening & Awards

The gender disparity in various disciplines of engineering has been a longstanding issue in the engineering community and IEEE societies alike. While meaningful strides have been taken to increase women’s involvement in STEM fields overall, women are still largely underrepresented in these fields, and especially in higher-ranking and leadership positions. In fact, of the Signal Processing Society’s more than 16,500 members, only 6.6% of them are women.

Each year, IEEE recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions or exercised leadership within IEEE-designated technical areas. The Signal Processing Society is honored to announce three of its members as recipients of the 2015 IEEE Technical Field Awards:

IEEE James L. Flanagan Speech and Audio Processing Award

The 9th annual Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge–Europe (SAUC-E) will be held at the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), from 20 September to 26 September 2014.
Held since 2006, SAUC-E challenges the next generation of engineers to design and build an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) capable of performing realistic missions.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) invites nominations for
the position of Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks (TSIPN) for a 3-year term starting 1 January 2015. TSIPN is a new journal co-sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Communications Society and Computer Society, launching in 2015, and the EIC is expected to play a major role in the start up.
