Second Greek Signal Processing Jam on May 17th, 2012 (Auditorium I, AUTH Research Committee)

The European Association for Signal Processing, the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and the Department of Informatics cordially invite you to the Second Greek Signal Processing Jam at the Auditorium I of Aristotle University Research Dissemination Center – ΚΕΔΕΑ ΑΠΘ (September 3rd Ave., University Campus) onThursday May 17th, 2012.

There will be a morning session comprising four lectures, a long Greek get-together lunch break, followed by an afternoon session with another three lectures.  The seminar is organized in memorial of our colleague Nicolas Galatsanos; will honor Professor Michael Strintzis, who has paved the careers of local Signal Processing community members; and it is an integral part of the celebrations for the 20 years of the Department of Informatics. Our goal is to reach out and bring together aspiring, young, and seasoned researchers with an interest in signal processing and its applications from image and music to communications and networking – including social networking! The event is sponsored by the leading Greek company Raycap.

Admission is free to all (notably the EURASIP and the IEEE members)
