IEEE Signal Processing Cup 2015

> 2015 Competition Results

The IEEE SP Cup is a competition that provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to form teams and work together to solve a challenging and interesting real-world problem using signal-processing techniques and methods. Three teams will be selected to present their work, and prizes will be awarded at ICASSP 2015. The competition title is:

Heart Rate Monitoring During Physical Exercise Using Wrist-Type Photoplethysmographic (PPG) Signals

This competition is proposed by the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee . For details of the competition project, please click here.

Participation in the Competition:

Each team participating in the competition is to be composed of one faculty member (whose role is the supervisor of the team members), at most one graduate student (who will assist the supervisor in supervising the undergraduate team members), and at least 3 but no more than 10 undergraduates. At least three of the undergraduate team members must be either IEEE SP members or student members.

Participating teams must submit their project by February 9, 2015 (extended.) Each submission should include a report, in the form of an IEEE conference paper, on the technical details of the methods used and the results, as well as the programs developed (MATLAB is preferred). Participating teams must register to join the competition by January 16, 2015. The online registration system will be open in September 2014. By March 6, 2015, the best 3 teams will be identified to participate in the final competition at ICASSP2015.

Important Dates:

Team registration to join the SP Cup competition: January 16, 2015 (Friday)
Submission deadline for participating teams: February 9, 2015 (Monday)-extended
Announcement of the best 3 teams: March 6, 2015 (Friday)
Final competition at ICASSP 2015: April 20, 2015 (Monday)

Team Prizes:
The champion: $5,000
The first runner-up: $2,500
The second runner-up: $1,500

Each team invited to ICASSP2015 will have their travel expenses supported by the SP Society. Each team member is offered up to $1200 for continental travel, or $1,700 for intercontinental travel, and at most 3 people from each team will be supported.

The Signal Processing Cup at ICASSP 2015

The IEEE Signal Processing Cup (SP Cup) is a competition that provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to form teams and work together to solve a challenging and interesting real-world problem using signal-processing techniques and methods. Three teams are selected to present their work, and prizes will be awarded at the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP).

The 2015 SP Cup competition took place at ICASSP 2015 in Brisbane, Australia on 20 April. The title was Heart Rate Monitoring During Physical Exercise Using Wrist-Type Photoplethysmographic (PPG) Signals. This competition was proposed by the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee. For details of the competition project, please click here.
