4th International Summer School on Intelligent Signal Processing for Frontier Research and Industry, USP, Brazil, January 23 to February 3, 2017



4th International Summer School on "Intelligent Signal Processing for Frontier Research and Industry", held at the University of Sao Paulo, USP, Brazil, January 23 to February 3, 2017


The School is being organized in the Campus of the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil, the Top University Campus in South America, at the Institutes of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Science (IAG), of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) , of Physics (IF), at the Polytechnic (Poli-USP) and the Medical (FM-USP) Schools.

Building on the success of the three former schools in the series, held in Europe (Oxford-2013, Paris-2014, Hamburg-2015) this 4th edition of a new global programme of annual Summer Schools, covering the complete signal processing chain for building up 21st century instruments, will go this year to South America.

The school focuses on the most advanced technologies in the fields of semiconductors, very deep submicron and 3D technologies, advanced packaging and interconnects, telecommunications, real-time signal processing, filtering and massive parallel computing. These sophisticated signal-processing schemes are driven by the demands of the New Physics domains to be explored.

The two-tier programme comprises lectures and lab works in a variety of cross-disciplinary example applications, drawn from the exploration of distant Universe, through Medical imaging of the human body, to exploration of the elementary particle world.

Experts from academia and industry share their insights on technical developments and present science overviews, alongside with hands-on lab sessions involving demonstrators and subject specific master-classes on science and technology.

The series of labs and classes with computer-based exercises serve as support and complementary training to the lectures. They will promote collaborative friendly exchanges between the students, lecturers and tutors.

The target audience is M.Sc., Ph.D., postdoc-level engineers and physicists.              

                      Registration opened until January 15, 2017.
