The Queensland joint-chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing, Communications, and Geoscience and Remote Sensing Societies was formed on March 7th 1994, making it the section’s fourth chapter.
The membership of the societies consists of industry and academic professionals with a common interest in advancing signal processing and communications technologies. Through publications, conferences, seminars educational programs, local activities, and technical committees, the societies aim to:
• Address the theory and application of filtering, coding, transmitting, estimating, detecting, analyzing, recognizing, synthesizing, recording, and reproducing signals by digital or analog devices or techniques.
• Foster original work in all aspects of signal processing communications science, engineering, and technology
• Encourage the development of applications that use signals to transfer voice, data, image, and/or video information between locations
• Promote the theory and use of systems involving all types of terminals, computers, and information processors; all pertinent systems and operations that facilitate transfer; all transmission media; switched and unswitched networks; and network layouts, protocols, architectures, and implementations
• Strongly advance developments toward meeting new market demands in systems, products, and technologies such as personal communications services, multimedia communications systems, enterprise networks, and optical communications systems.
The main activities organised by the chapter are talks, seminars, workshops, site visits and conferences. These events allow us to further our knowledge in the field as well as provide an opportunity to share ideas and network with our colleagues around the world. Please contact the chapter chair if you are interested in joining the chapter or serving on the committee.
