Call for Proposals Short Courses at ICIP 2022

In Collaboration with SPS Education Board Deadline: 8 July 2022

The International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) in collaboration with the IEEE Signal Processing Society (IEEE-SPS) Education Board is planning education short-course offerings at ICIP 2022. These education-oriented short courses will offer Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) certificates to those who complete each course. Because students, academic, and industry researchers and practitioners have a broad diversity of interests and areas of experience worldwide, the IEEE-SPS goal is to develop meaningful methods of offering beneficial and relevant courses in support of our membership educational needs.

General Information about Short Courses at ICIP

Duration: Short courses should have a total duration of 10 hours, distributed over 4 days at 2.5 hours a day.

Coverage: Short courses should be different than tutorials and aim for a broader view covering a wide spectrum of ideas and results in their area, and not focusing on some expert’s research results. Both established and emerging domains are welcome, as well as experiential, hands-on components introducing methods and tools, are encouraged.

Target Audience:

  1. Students or researchers from Universities or Research Centers, and/or
  2. Industry Researchers. Hybrid combinations are welcome, too.

Availability: ICIP short courses will be offered as an in-person-only program, with the recording being made available on the SPS Resource Center after the conference. Details about the post-ICIP short-course recordings to receive a PDH or CEU will be broadcasted at a later date.

Exercise Material/Certificates: Exercise material and some hands-on experience should be available for the course attendees. A $5,000 USD honorarium will be evenly divided between the developers/presenters of accepted short courses, and upon request, a certificate of recognition will be delivered for their contributions to this IEEE-SPS Education program.

Call for Short-Course Proposals:

Short-course proposals in all areas of signal processing and its applications are warmly invited and encouraged for presentation at ICIP 2022.

If the pandemic situation renders it impossible to deliver of an in-person short course, the developers of an accepted short course will have the option of presenting it remotely.
