IEEE International Workshop on Intelligent Signal Processing

5 -7 September 1999
Budapest, Hungary

Sponsored by: IEEE Hungary Section

(all applied for or pending)

Organised by: IEEE Hungary Section

Technical University of Budapest


Today's complex industrial and engineering systems - especially
with the appearance of large-scale embedded and/or real-time
systems - confront researchers and engineers with completely new
challenges. Measurement and signal processing systems are involved
in almost all kind of activities in that field where control
problems, system identification problems, industrial technologies,
etc. are to be solved, i.e., when signals, parameters, or
attributes must be measured, monitored, approximated, or determined
somehow. In a large number of cases traditional information
processing tools and equipment fail to handle these problems. Not
only the handling of the previously unseen spatial and temporal
complexity is questionable but such problems have also to be
addressed like the interaction and communication of subsystems
based on entirely different modeling and information expression
methods. The handling of abrupt changes within the environment
and/or the processing system, the possible temporal shortage of
computational power and/or loss of some data due to the former also
have to be evaluated.

Signal processing should even in these cases provide outputs of
acceptable quality to continue the operation of the complete
system, producing data for qualitative evaluations and supporting
decisions. It means the introduction of new ideas for specifying,
designing, implementing, and operating sophisticated signal
processing systems. Intelligent - artificial intelligence, soft
computing, anytime, etc. - methods are serious candidates for
handling many of the theoretical and practical problems, providing
a better description, and, in many cases, are the best if not the
only alternatives for emphasizing significant aspects of system
behavior. These new techniques, however, are not widely used in the
field of signal processing because some of the critical questions
related to the design and verification are not answered properly
and because the uncertainty in maintained in a quite different way
as it is in the classical metrology.

WISP'99 is primarily directed to discuss the most recent
developments and the on-going research related to intelligent
signal processing in embedded and/or real time systems. A secondary
purpose of the workshop is, to identify the succesful applications
of already well settled methological tools of the field.For this
very reason separate sessions are planed to be organized to cover
applications based on the proper combination of well-matured
techniques, and the results of recent investigations which might
open new vistas for the research community. Attention will be
focused on, but not limited to: modeling, uncertainty-handling,
artificial intelligence, soft computing techniques, anytime
algorithms, adaptive and nonlinear processing, intelligent signal
processing, embedded systems, real-time systems, distributed
diagnostic systems, VLSI/ASIC for intelligent signal processing,
tool integration for better performance, performance modeling,
performance measurement, applications.
