10 November 2017 – IEEE SP Malaysia made an industrial visit to Vitrox, Penang, a Malaysian owned company.  The purpose of the visit is to learn about their machine vision technology and identify area of collaborations.

Professional Knowledge Transfer Workshop

Professional Knowledge Transfer Workshop (Arduino Simple Programming) at Schools near Parit Raja, Batu Pahat. Johor.

October- November 2017 – The Arduino Simple Programming at school was held at 5 different Schools near Parit Raja, Batu Pahat, Johor. The schools are SK Jelutong, SMK Sri gading, SK Pintas Puding, SK Bukit Kuari and SK Seri Sabak Uni during October- November 2017. The objective of Professional Knowledge Transfer Workshop is to give an exposure to the students of primary and secondary schools on engineering and to inspire them to be an engineer. This program has been organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) UTHM Student Branch with cooperation of IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Malaysia Chapter. The program is fully funded by IEEE SPS under the IEEE SPS Member Driven Initiative Fund for the amount of USD 1,400. The fund has been used to buy 30 Arduino Uno kits, purchasing materials, stationery, and refreshments for 30 student participant from each school, 10 postgraduates student form UTHM IEEE student branch and 3 Academic staffs from FKEE, UTHM.

By the end of this workshop, the participants has gain knowledge that will inspire them to try a new things in study and enables this understanding of engineering to come to life through problem solving, designing and building things. Besides, they should be able to create a beginner engineering project by their own using Arduino microcontroller and interested to be an engineer in electrical and electronic. This workshop also encourage them to start thinking about their future path and to be an engineer in school and home.  With this workshop, the Malaysian hopes to make up the number of engineers who are now more than 65000 people to 82000 people will succeed.

 

IEEE SPS Malaysia Chapter Family Day 2017

14th October 2017 (Saturday) – IEEE SPS Malaysia Chapter Family Day was held at d’Nelayan Beach Resort Melaka (http://www.dnelayanbeachresort.blogspot.my/). About 15 SPS family participated in this memorable event.

The event was mainly organised by Dr Norzali from UTHM and Dr Nor’aini Jalil from Wavesmiles. The SP family members, especially the kids had a great fun together in the sport activities organised by d’Nelayan Beach Resort.

ICSIPA 2017

12-14 September 2017 – The IEEE International Conference on Signal and Image Processing Applications (ICSIPA), organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society Malaysia Chapter was held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.

It provides a forum for local and international researchers and engineers from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest technological advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental and applied signal, image and video processing.

IEEE ICSIPA 2017 is the fifth in the series of the ICSIPA conference. The previous IEEE ICSIPA conferences, held since 2009, were major successes with 50% – 70% international participation.

IEEE ICSIPA 2017 provide original high quality paper submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field of signal, image and video processing.

IPIARTI 2017

19 July 2017 – Image Processing, Image Analysis and Real-Time Imaging (IPIARTI) symposium was held at Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU). 56 participants attended the event.

Dear All Presenters and Participants of IPIARTI 2017,

First and foremost, thank you so much for making the 8th Symposium on Image Processing, Image Analysis and Real-Time Imaging (IPIARTI) held on 19 July 2017 at APU a success. We hope that everyone went back with some new knowledge and more networking opportunities.

Thank you once again and see you at the next IEEE Signal Processing Society Malaysia Chapter event! Please note that in addition to IPIARTI, another free event held annually is the Symposium on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (SASSP).

Do look out for both events next year. If you’d like to participate in the Chapter’s flagship conference IEEE ICSIPA 2017, more details can be found at ICSIPA 2017.
