El Capítulo Argentino de la IEEE SPS Signal Processing Society invita a la Conferencia “Array Signal Processing for Localization and Communication - With a Prelude on Signal Processing History and Trends”  que dictará el Dr. Mos Kaveh, IEEE Fellow y Conferencista Distinguido de dicha Sociedad, el próximo viernes 1 de noviembre de 2013, según se detalla a continuación.
 Conferencia “Array Signal Processing for Localization and Communication - With a Prelude on Signal Processing History and Trends”
This talk begins with a perspective on the history of the development of modern signal processing as manifested in the growth and technical diversification of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. A number of examples are provided to illustrate the trends in the field and some likely future directions made possible by developments in sensing, computational and communication technologies, and opportunities ranging from entertainment to grand challenge problems in energy and health care.
The presentation then focuses on the subject of array signal processing for localization and communications. The spatial dimension can be utilized for user separation and improved reception through the placement of multiple antenna elements at the receiver and/or the transmitter and appropriate signaling when possible. Further, the ubiquity of wireless transmitters has provided the opportunity for location-based services, mobile localization in emergencies, and localization of unwanted or illegal transmitters.
Basic techniques for processing multi-element signals for localization and for processing to effect interference reduction or for increased diversity are briefly reviewed. This is followed by an exposition on several classes of algorithms for direction finding, including some recent results in the use of sparse models for such purpose. The challenge of wireless localization in urban environments is considered and an approach that exploits the complexity of the propagation channel for localization is presented.
Biographical Sketch for Mos Kaveh
Mos Kaveh received his B.S. and PhD degrees from Purdue University in 1969 and 1974, respectively, and his M.S. degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1970 all in electrical engineering. He has been at the University of Minnesota since 1975, where he is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and from 1990 to May 2005 was the Head of that department. He currently serves as the Associate Dean for Research and Planning for the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering.
His teaching and research interests are in the areas signal and image processing with applications to wireless communications, sensing systems, and biomedicine.
Dr. Kaveh served as the President of the IEEE Signal Processing Society 2010-11. His other volunteer leadership positions in the Signal Processing Society include service as the Vice-President of Awards and Membership, 2003-2005, Vice-President for Publications, 1993-1996, and General Chair of ICASSP93.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the AAAS, and recipient of several best paper and other professional awards, including the 2000 Society Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and a 2002 Purdue University Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer Award.
