Distinguished Lecturer Program
The Society's Distinguished Lecturer Program provides means for chapters to have access to individuals who are well known educators and authors in the fields of signal processing, to lecture at Chapter meetings. While many IEEE Societies have similar programs, the SPS provides financial support for the Chapters to take advantage of the service.
