The IEEE SPS Italy Chapter was established in October 2011 aiming at linking together Italian researchers working in the field of Signal Processing. The Chapter adheres to the mission of the IEEE Signal Processing Society whose purpose is to: advance and disseminate state-of-the-art scientific information and resources; educate the signal processing community; and provide a venue for people to interact and exchange ideas.

The IEEE SPS Italy Chapter organizes the annual IEEE - EURASIP Summer School on Signal Processing and supports the annual GTTI-SPS Thematic Meeting on Multimedia Signal Processing, providing a venue for people to interact and exchange ideas about state-of-the-art scientific achievements, as well as to promote initiatives and encourage the development of the multimedia signal processing community.
