TC News

The Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM TC) aims at illuminating and exploring signal processing challenges in communications and networking. The SPCOM TC is pleased to welcome several new members, and thank three retiring members for their contribution. The SPCOM TC joined forces with the SAM TC joined forces in organizing two joint sessions at ICASSP 2010. The TC's flagship event is the IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC). This year's SPAWC10 will be held June 20-23, 2010, in Marrakech, Morocco.

The Industry Digital Signal Processing Technology (IDSP) Standing Committee was formed in 1999 to promote industry participation in the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and particularly in ICASSP. The IDSP SC is organized similarly to a technical committee, with committee members elected from SPS membership in industry, government, or academia (with strong industrial involvement). The IDSP SC recently completed reviews for the Industrial Technology Track of the ICASSP 2010 conference. Individuals interested in involvement with IDSP SC are encouraged to contact the Chair.

Beginning January 2010, several of the IEEE Signal Processing Society's Technical Committees (TCs) have new Chairs taking leadership roles.

The Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP TC) successfully organized the 2009 MMSP Workshop in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, marking a milestone for the first time one of the major IEEE Signal Processing Society events being held in Latin America. Planning is underway for MMSP 2010, which will be held in Saint-Malo, France. The TC also invites proposals to organize the 2011 MMSP Workshop. Another major effort in 2009 that the MMSP TC is actively engaged in was to revitalize the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) jointly organized by four IEEE societies. The TC welcomes a new Chair and eight newly elected members in January 2010.

Recently DISPS TC members organized the first special issue devoted to the important emerging topic of multicore design and implementation of signal processing systems on IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. The TC sponsors Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (SiPS) -- the 2009 edition was successfully held in Tampere, Finland, and the 2010 edition is calling for papers and participation.

An exclusive article by Alex Acero, the SPS's first Vice President-Technical Directions, on many society-wide initiatives on technical directions in recent years. These include the formation of the Technical Directions Board, review of Technical Committees, the creation of new TCs and TC-sponsored workshops, and the renaming of several TCs to better reflect their latest scope and interests.

The Machine Learning for Signal Processing Technical Committee (MLSP TC) is at the interface between theory and application, developing novel theoretically-inspired methodologies targeting both longstanding and emergent signal processing applications. A main TC-sponsored annual event is the IEEE Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing. The Nineteenth MLSP Workshop was successfully held in September 2009 in the city of Grenoble, France, with picturesque views of mountains leading up to the Alps.

The Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee addresses the areas of sensor array and multi-channel statistical signal processing, with main application areas focusing on radar, sonar, wireless communications, microphone array processing, navigation, seismology, radio astronomy, and biomedicine. At ICASSP 2009, the SAM TC collaborated with the SPTM and SPCOM TCs to organize a Thematic Symposium on Network Distributed Signal Processing; Harry Van Trees nominated by the SAM TC received SPS Technical Achievement Award. The SAM TC participated in its first TC review by the Signal Processing Society and adopted formal Bylaws.

The Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee (SLTC) promotes and influences all the technical areas of speech and language processing. As year-end approaches, the TC is getting ready for the eleventh biannual IEEE ASRU Workshop that will be held on December 13-17 in Merano, Italy. 18 new TC members were recently selected from a larger pool of recognized international experts. SLTC 2009 summer eNewsLetter edition has been published online, with a new pilot feature that allows readers to add their comments about the published articles.

The Signal Processing Theory and Methods Technical Committee (SPTM TC) promotes activities in the technical areas of theory and methods of digital and statistical signal processing. The 2009 edition of the TC-sponsored IEEE Workshop on Statistical Signal Processing was held in Cardiff, UK in September 2009. The event was very well attended with almost 250 attendees, who enjoyed six keynote talks from leading international researchers. The 14th IEEE SPS Workshop on DSP and SP Education will take place in Sedona, Arizona, USA in 2010.
