<p>IEEE Signal Processing Society Past President Rabab K. Ward in her capacity as Chair of the Society’s Nominations and Appointments Committee invites nominations for the IEEE Signal Processing Society Officer positions of Vice President-Membership for the term 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022 and the new position of Vice President-Education for the term 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022. </p>

When the IEEE Signal Processing Society was initially established as the Professional Group on Audio in 1948, signal processing as we know it didn’t exist. The founders of what would eventually become IEEE’s first society could not have foreseen the evolution of their discipline’s once-narrow scope.

At its 18 May 2019 meeting, the Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society passed amendments to the Society’s Constitution document regarding member election of the Society’s President-Elect, updating the reference to email voting instead of postal mail voting along with its associated timeframe and removing the 30-day waiting period, so amendments are effective after all required approvals are received. 

The Executive Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society appointed a new Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Signal Processing Letters who will start her term on 1 January 2020.

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 related to a particular TC field. To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and selecting a particular TC. Visit the SPS Job Submission Form.

Due to overwhelming interest in Member Driven Initiative funding, the IEEE Signal Processing Society has changed its process for submitting proposals through the program. This includes proposals for Forums, Regional Meetings, and Chapter Driven Initiatives.

The SPS Awards Board is now accepting nominations for all Society level awards, from paper awards to the major society awards. Nominations are due by 1 September 2019.  Nominators should take into consideration the need for representation of diversity in the award nomination slate, when submitting their nominations.  

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is honored to announce the elevation of 100 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. 

IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) President, Ali H. Sayed, is seeking nominations for the positions of Chair and Vice Chair of the IEEE SPS Fellow Evaluation Committee. The term of appointment for each position is one year, renewable (1 January 2020-31 December 2020). The Chair is responsible for chairing the Fellow Evaluation Committee, which is responsible for evaluating nominations for IEEE Fellow that are referred for review by the IEEE Fellow Committee. 

The IEEE Signal Processing Society Chapter of the Year Award will be presented for the ninth time in 2020. The award will be presented annually to a Chapter that has provided their membership with the highest quality of programs, activities and services. The award will be presented annually in conjunction with the International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) to the Chapter’s representative.
