Volunteer Opportunities

Technical Committees

Technical Committees within the Signal Processing Society have the following functions: organize and conduct timely reviews of ICASSP papers in their area, approve and supervise relevant workshops, nominate members for various society awards, assist in the selection of distinguished lecturers, assist in the selection of associate editors for society journals, provide expertise in the development of IEEE standards, generally promote their technical area within the Signal Processing Society.

Qualifications: Membership in the society, a track record of publications within the committee's technical purview, several (typically at least three) years of post-graduate experience, a reputation of expertise in some relevant technical area, commitment to regularly attend ICASSP and workshops sponsored by the committee, commitment to be responsive to committee responsibilities listed above.

To Volunteer: Openings on the Technical Committees are filled from nominations made by committee members. The best way to be nominated is to get to know members of the committee, and ask them to consider you for an open position (there are typically 5-10 openings on each committee every year). Note that the committees will take more than your qualifications into account when voting on new members; in particular, it is critical that they have a membership whose specialties are well-balanced and cover the breadth of the committee's technical domain. Qualified nominees may not be selected if their area is already well represented on the committee.
