IEEE-USA Co-Sponsoring IEEE Signal Processing in Medicine & Biology Symposium 2012 Seeks Technical Papers & Posters

By Chris McManes

Organizers of the 2012 IEEE Signal Processing in Medicine and Biology Symposium (SPMB12) are seeking technical papers and posters. Suggested topics include:

  • Analysis of EEG, ECG, respiratory & other biomedical signals
  • Medical imaging — image formation, analysis, etc.
  • Linear, nonlinear & adaptive filtering & prediction
  • Machine learning & classification
  • Synchronization, coherence, coupling, connectivity, causality
  • Nonlinear dynamics & system modeling
  • Multi-sensor & array processing
  • Time-frequency & non-stationary signal analysis
  • Signal processing methods in bioinformatics
  • Component analysis (PCA, ICA, etc.) & source separation
  • Brain-computer interfaces (BCI)
  • Biomedical instrumentation for novel signal measurement
  • Open problems, emerging techniques & applications

Accepted papers will be published by IEEE and presented at SPMB12 at the City College of New York (CCNY) on Saturday 1 December 2012. At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the symposium and pay the conference fee.

Signal processing plays a broad role in the development of medical devices and in the analysis of physiological signals. This symposium will provide a forum for the presentation of research and development in signal processing as broadly defined to include image processing, 3D reconstruction and topics such as those above in medicine and biology.

Important submission dates:

  • Paper/poster/abstract submission — 26 October
  • Notification — 2 November
  • Early registration — until 23 November.


All submissions must describe original work not previously published or currently under review for publication in another conference or journal.


SPMB12 is sponsored by IEEE-USA, CCNY and the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly).

IEEE-USA advances the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of 210,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.


Chris McManes is IEEE-USA’s public relations manager.
