10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

Society News

As of Sunday, 16 August, anyone joining IEEE becomes a member for the 2016 membership year.

This is a valuable time to promote IEEE membership.

Anyone joining now will receive the remainder of 2015 at no additional cost.

Email Nicole Dewhurst, Member and Geographic Activities, at n.dewhurst@ieee.org for more information on how you can incorporate a "join" message in your communications

Please be aware of the following timeline for renewals:

Nominations are due 31 January annually for the IEEE Technical Field Awards (TFAs). 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.

All IEEE members are encouraged to submit a nomination for a worthy candidate within their technical fields.

Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2015 and will serve until 31 December 2018. The successful candidates are: Robert W. Heath Jr., Lina J. Karam and Min Wu.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is honored to announce the elevation of 18 of its members to the grade of IEEE Senior Member. These members have demonstrated outstanding professional performance, exhibited professional maturity through long-term experience, and established themselves as leaders in their respective IEEE-designated fields of interest. Senior Member is the only membership grade that is eligible to be nominated for IEEE Fellow. The new Senior Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society are:

Are you a practicing engineer who would like to attend GlobalSIP 2015? Talk to your local Chapter Chair about how you can qualify for travel support to attend the conference in Orlando, Florida, USA this December!

The SPS Executive Committee recently approved an initiative that would provide limited Society support for SPS Chapters to send up to two members each to the IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP) from 14-16 December 2015.

K. J. Ray Liu,
SPS Nominations and Appointments Committee Chair

In accordance with the Bylaws of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, I am writing to solicit nominations for the Awards Board for the term 2016-18 and the Nominations and Appointments (N&A) Committee for the term 2016-17. This year, the Society will be filling THREE positions on the N&A Committee and TWO positions on the Awards Board. Nominations must be received no later than Thursday, 1 October 2015.

IEEE Day 2015 will be held on Tuesday, 6 October. This will be the sixth anniversary of IEEE members celebrating the anniversary of the first time IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884.

Since the first IEEE Day event in 2010, the number of events worldwide has grown over 600%, from 80 to over 520! The IEEE Day team needs you to help grow this annual event even larger.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is honored to announce the elevation of 21 of its members to the grade of IEEE Senior Member.
