SPS-EURASIP Partnership Announcement
The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) are proud to announce their new partnership, benefitting the signal processing community!

Since 1948, SPS has striven to provide the highest quality publications, conferences, technical and educational activities, and leadership opportunities to signal processing professionals worldwide. EURASIP was established in 1978 as a means of improving the communication, exchange, and dissemination of information and research among signal processing professionals in Europe and beyond. With SPS’ global reach and EURASIP’s strong European presence, this partnership aims to achieve improved service from both organizations.

The agreement allows SPS and EURASIP to support one another by way of co-sponsorship of EUSIPCO, co-sponsorship of seasonal schools held in Europe, sharing of Distinguished Lecturers, and more. We look forward to further strengthening of the relationship among SPS, EURASIP, and the global community of signal processing professionals.
