ICASSP 2024, in collaboration with the IEEE Signal Processing Society (IEEE-SPS) Education Board, is planning offerings of education short courses at the conference. The education-oriented short courses will offer Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) certificates to those who complete each course. Given that students, academics, and industry researchers and practitioners worldwide have a broad diversity of interests and areas of expertise, the IEEE-SPS goal is to develop meaningful methods of offering beneficial and relevant courses in support of our members’ educational needs.

General Information about Short Courses at ICASSP 2024

Duration: Each course should have a total duration of 10 hours, distributed over 4 days, at 2.5 hours per day or over 2 days at 5 hours per day during the conference.

Coverage They 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 only on research results from a specific individual or group. Both established and emerging domains are welcome, and we also encourage experiential, hands-on components that introduce methods and tools.

Target Audience: 1) Students, 2) researchers from universities or research labs/centers and industry, and/or 3) signal processing engineers and practitioners from industry. Hybrid combinations are also welcome.

Availability: ICASSP 2024 Short Courses will only be available for in-person attendance.

Exercise materials/Certificates: To enhance a deeper and multi-sided understanding of the course content, some exercise materials, and possibly some hands-on experimentation should be available for the course attendees. Support in the form of a $5000 honorarium will be available for the Developers and Presenters of each accepted short course, as well as certification for the developer(s) and their team(s) in recognition of their contributions to IEEE-SPS Education.

Short-course proposals in all areas of signal processing and their applications are warmly invited and encouraged for presentation at ICASSP 2024. Please submit your short-course proposals via this proposal form.

Essential information to be included in a short course proposal:
  1. Title of the course.
  2. Presenter’s name, contact information, short biography including previous experience related to the short course, and a maximum of five recent related publications (for each presenter).
  3. Course description (max 5 pages excluding references and additional teaching materials, single column, 12pt):
    • The rationale for the short course, including its importance, timeliness, broad usefulness, and how it can possibly introduce new ideas, topics, and tools to the SP community.
    • A detailed description of the short course outlining the learning goals and the topics and subtopics covered.
    • A description of any supporting course resources, e.g., books, notes, etc.
    • A description of hands-on or lab components of the short course.
    • A statement of any previous or related versions of this short course.
    • A description of target attendees, and the expected prerequisite technical knowledge.
    • A list of references.
    • Although it doesn’t have to be complete, any available slides and hands-on lab materials could help the review committee understand the proposed course. We accept URL links to the external materials that host those teaching materials if they don't fit in the PDF.

Short course proposals will be peer-reviewed based on the above information. Their review will be supervised by the SPS Education Board. The titles of selected short courses will be posted on the conference webpage, and the short courses which do not attract sufficient registrants may be canceled.
