SPS Challenge Program

As a service to the SPS community, the SPS Challenge Program offers support to challenge organizers by

The SPS Challenge Program is operated by the Challenges and Data Collections Committee of the Technical Directions Board of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and as such reflects a joint effort of all Technical Committees of the Society. Its fundamental goal is to

  • to encourage and support research with comparable and reproducible results in relevant, timely and impactful signal processing tasks;
  • to identify, and to encourage the collection of, appropriate data-sets that embody those signal processing tasks and to support the sharing of such data-sets widely in the community;
  • to identify appropriate performance metrics for the relevant tasks and, where appropriate, disseminate standardized tools for computing those metrics;
  • to identify the state-of-the-art methods for such signal processing tasks and evaluate their performance comparatively on the identified data-sets; and
  • to disseminate the results of Challenges and subsequent scientific insights widely within the society and externally.
