The SAM Workshop is a major IEEE Signal Processing Society event devoted to sensor array and multichannel signal processing. The organizing committee invites the international community to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field. SAM 2014 will feature plenary talks by leading researchers in the field as well as poster sessions with presentations by the participants.

Welcome to A Coruña!

The workshop will be organized in Hotel Hesperia Finisterre, located in the heart of A Coruña, Spain, a modern city looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean. A Coruña is an open city that embraces all its visitors with warmth and according to its motto “A Coruña is the city where nobody is a stranger”. It is blessed with a beach promenade that completely surrounds it, the Hércules Tower, which is a World Heritage site, and many local and regional attractions. The workshop will take place during the Midsummer Festival that will make SAM 2014 an unforgettable experience.

  • Adaptive beamforming
  • Array processing for biomedical applications
  • Array processing for communications
  • Blind source separation and channel identification
  • Computational and optimization techniques for array processing
  • Compressive sensing and sparsity-based signal processing
