Axis 1: Intelligent Signal Processing

Signal Processing is still at the heart of many information and communications technologies; beyond the early breakthroughs that have enabled major ICT developments, intelligent signal processing activities must now tackle new challenges in an increasingly complex networked environment with exploding volumes of data.

Key research challenges in the area include content-based multimedia search and indexing, distributed signal acquisition and processing, and advanced filtering and estimation techniques (particle filtering).
