Bob Owens Best Student Paper Award

The program committee of SiPS'2021 is proud to announce the winner of the Bob Owens Best Student Paper Award:

Kyungmi Lee, MIT
Understanding the Energy vs. Adversarial Robustness Trade-Off in Deep Neural Networks
Co-authored by Anantha Chandrakasan, MIT


The organizing committee has been constantly monitoring the worldwide vaccination programme and the pandemics evolution. Although we originally expected to be able to host a physical event in Coimbra, in October 2021, in the last survey sent to all authors, only a residual number of people were still planning to travel to Coimbra. Many people travelling from long distances would not be able to know in advance the exact state and regulations imposed by the pandemic in each country they would have to cross in their journey to Portugal. Thus, SiPS'2021 will move to a virtual event.[More Info]

Coimbra, Portugal

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Systems is expected to be held in Coimbra, located at the center of Portugal. Coimbra is a riverfront city in central Portugal and the country’s former capital. It preserves a medieval old town that hosts the historic University of Coimbra — Alta and Sofia UNESCO World Heritage —, the oldest university in Portugal, and one of the oldest in the world. Created by King Dinis in 1290, by signing the Scientiae Thesaurus Mirabilis, the University of Coimbra went through several relocations until it permanently settled in Coimbra in 1537.
