Schniter's team wins IEEE Signal Processing Society 'Best Paper Award'

The IEEE Signal Processing Society named a research team in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) at The Ohio State University among its 2016 Best Paper Award winners.

ECE Prof. Philip Schniter's team won for its work on the two-part paper: "Bilinear Generalized Approximate Message Passing - Part I: Derivation" and "Part II: Applications", published in IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Volume 62, No. 22, November 2014. The first author of the paper, Jason T. Parker, earned his BS, MS and PhD degrees in ECE at Ohio State and is now with the Air Force Research Lab in Dayton. The winning team also includes Prof. Volkan Cevher from Ecole polytechnique deferale de Lausanne in Switzerland. The work was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and DARPA/ONR.

Schniter's research areas of interest currently include statistical signal processing, wireless communications and networks, as well as machine learning. Jason T. ParkerHe received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992 and 1993, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, in 2000.

From 1993 to 1996 Schniter was employed by Tektronix Inc. in Beaverton, OR as a systems engineer. After earning his Ph.D. degree, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The Ohio State University, Columbus, where he is currently a Professor and a member of the Information Processing Systems (IPS) Lab. From 2008 to 2009, he was a visiting professor at Eurecom, Sophia Antipolis, France, and Supélec, Gif-sur-Yvette, France. In 2003, he received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. 

Volkan CevherFounded as IEEE’s first society in 1948, the Signal Processing Society is the world’s premier association for signal processing engineers and industry professionals. Engineers around the world look to the Society for information on the latest developments in the signal processing field. Its history spans almost 70 years, featuring a membership base of more than 19,000 signal processing engineers, academics, industry professionals and students spanning 100 countries worldwide.

The society organizes numerous conferences around the world every year, focusing on the innovations shaping the future of signal processing and future innovations.
