Tthe 30th IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP 2020) will be organized in Finland in September. The call for papers and call for special sessions is now open.

Machine learning, as the driving force of this wave of AI, provides powerful solutions to many real-world technical and scientific challenges. The 30th MLSP workshop, an annual event organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society MLSP Technical Committee, will present the most recent and exciting advances in machine learning for signal processing through keynote talks, tutorials, as well as special and regular single-track sessions.

The deadline for paper submission is April 19th (cfp).



IEEE Finland Section Events Suspended due to COVID-19 until end of May 2020

The safety and well-being of our members, volunteers and event participants are of paramount importance to IEEE. We hope you and your families remain in good health and spirits during these unusual times.

IEEE monitors authoritative sources and follows the guidance of those sources as well as all relevant governmental bodies in the communities in which we live and volunteer.

IEEE President Toshio Fukuda, along with IEEE Executive Director Stephen Welby, has requested that “all members avoid conducting in-person IEEE activities in areas impacted by the coronavirus threat and instead maximize the use of our online and virtual alternatives.”

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and rely upon authoritative sources; please keep an eye on future communication from us as more is known about the duration of this health emergency.

This global health crisis is a unique challenge that has impacted many members of the IEEE family. These are difficult times, but we will get through them by working together. Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

Best wishes for your continued safety and well-being,

IEEE Finland board

November Industry-university co-operation meeting of IEEE Young Professionals

The Industry-university co-operation meeting of IEEE Young Professionals on 6.11 has been successfully completed. Represented companies were Sandvik, GE, Efore, Merus Power, Danfoss, Empower, ABB, Gofore, VTT.

The meeting was organized to discuss how to support the Tampere university after its re-start in 2019. During the dinner, it was decided to create an industry supported BSc thesis program for students of power electronics and automation. This means, that suitable BSc thesis topics in industry will be offered. The students will be supported during their BSc thesis process and after that, students have the opportunity to be hired. Industry visits to the University will be organized and also students shall be able to visit factories and test sites.

The first visiting lectures are organized in the end of the year 2019 and the official industry-supported BSc program will start in spring 2020.

In addition to university support, co-operation possibilities with companies were discussed especially in the projects funded by EU and Business Finland and Tampere University career opportunities and career development.

European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (EISIC) 2019
