Intensive Mentoring Program for Upcoming Leaders in Signal procEssing

Free Registration

Prize Pool of 150 USD

10- day Mentoring Programme

Hackathon to test your skills

About Us

Here is a chance to kickstart your learning in the fields of Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Machine Learning (ML) and Computer Vision (CV) with a 10- day mentoring programme, and to test your skills at the end and stand a chance to win exciting cash awards from a prize pool of 150 USD.

IMPULSE will be a series of exciting events, each leading to another. The primary goal is to provide upcoming engineers a peek into state-of-the-art research and industry practices, and to direct them towards it.

Participants will also be introduced to the different challenges of IEEE SPS and IEEE CS like ICASSP, ICIP, CVPR and ECCV. These sessions will be handled by past challenge winners.

The registration is for the entire event. Participants should register as individuals and later form teams of 1 to 4 people, prior to the hackathon. Attendance will be taken into account to provide participation certificates and other goodies.
