The 2016 IEEE-EURASIP Summer School on Signal Processing (S3P-2016) is the 4th edition of a successful series. Organized by the IEEE SPS Italy Chapter and the National Telecommunications and Information Technologies Group - GTTI with the sponsorship of IEEE (S3P program) and EURASIP (Seasonal School Co-Sponsorship agreement) - the School is a unique forum where International experts in Signal Processing will provide PhD students and Researchers with insights on up to date tools and methodologies in the field.

The proposed theme of the 2016 edition will be Semantics in Media.
The school will report recent advances in multimedia technologies, exploring the boundary between signal processing and signal understanding. More in detail, a selection of hot research topics will be offered, including:

  • Signals vs. context: content, context and intent in media analysis and retrieval
  • Signals vs. smart systems: intelligent video processing systems
  • Signals vs. perception: quality of experience in media
  • Signals vs. knowledge: human computing and crowdsourcing in media analysis
  • Signals vs. representation: better signal descriptions for better content understanding
  • Signals vs. security and trust: multimedia forensics

The school will count on the presence of outstanding lecturers of international level:

  • Andrea Cavallaro (Queen Mary Univ. of London, UK)
  • Alan Hanjalic (TU Delft, Netherlands)
  • Alejandro Jaimes (Univ. Columbia and AiCure, USA)
  • Aggelos K. Katsaggelos (Northwestern Univ., USA)
  • Patrick Le Callet (Polytech’ Nantes, France)
  • Fernando Pérez-González (Univ. Vigo, Spain)
  • Vittorino Filippas (Free Lance Advisor, Italy)
  • Roberto Saracco (EIT-Digital and IEEE FDC Chair, Italy)

The technical program will span 5 days, (Mon. 5 to Fri. 9, with arrival on Sun. 4), along which the school will provide both theoretical insights and application examples. Additionally, the school will give the students opportunities to present, cross-link and interact each other and with teachers about their current and future research, as well as to attend some special events with industry and innovation experts. Students will be also engaged in demo competition with a final award. Moreover a test will be performed during last day to obtain a certificate worth ECTS credits.
