Conference on signal processing systems present for the first time in Portugal
The 12th edition of the Conference on Design and Architectures for Signal and Image Processing (DASIP), which was hosted by INESC TEC and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, took place in Portugal between 10 and 12 October.
19th November 2018
João MP Cardoso, researcher of INESC TEC’s Centre for Information Systems and Computer Graphics (CSIG) and general co-chair of DASIP, highlights the interventions of the three invited speakers: Orlando Moreira from GrAI Matters Lab (the Netherlands) who addressed the theme “Tools for Embedded Systems programming: from Research to Development”; Simon Dobson from the University of St. Andrews (United Kingdom) who spoke about “Making the transition from sensors to sensor systems software”; and Leonel Sousa from IST/INESC-ID (Portugal) who focused on the topic “Modular Arithmetic and Signal Processing: Emerging Applications and Technologies”.
From the 21 communications, the edition of this year awarded the paper: “POLYBiNN: A Scalable and Efficient Combinatorial Inference Engine for Neural Networks on FPGA”, by Ahmed Abdelsalam, Ahmed Elsheikh, Jean-Pierre David and J.M. Pierre Langlois with the Best Paper Award. The work “Embedded vision system for automated drone landing site detection – a demo” by Patryk Fraczek, Andre Mora and Tomasz Kryjak won the Best Demo Award. Both received a Xilinx PYNQ-Z2 Board.
There was also a demonstration session and a special session focused on R&D projects that are funded by the European Union.
The initiative, which is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and CAS (IEEE Circuits and Systems Society), intended to be “an inspiring international forum for the latest innovations and developments in the field of leading edge embedded signal processing systems” and had participants from the United States, Canada, India, Japan, Germany, France, Poland, Greece, Finland and the Netherlands.
The members of INESC TEC, José Carlos Alves, João Canas Ferreira and João Bispo were also part of the organisation of the conference.
