The Year 2017 in Review

Looking back at the end of 2017 brings back really a lot of great events that happend during the year. Please find a few of them as well as other "highlights" below:

  • Let's start with the largest conference that the DSS chair had organized so far: the DAGA. Even if this was really a lot of work, we organized really a great conference with a lot of "extras" that were new for this conference: a DAGA specific song that opened the conference and a sports programm that supports the scientic part to mention just two of the "extras".
  • In the second part of 2017 we founded the "Gesellschaft für angewandte Signalverarbeitung" (GAS), which can be seen as "friends' association" of the DSS chair. Meanwhile we have more than 30 members, including two companies that support our GAS club.

Beside these individual events, we were also rather "productive" in terms of "traditional" measures for university chairs:

  • In 2017 the largest number of PhD students received a doctor's degree since the start of the chair in 2010. Five new doctors delivered their theses: Anne, Kolja, Vasu, Jochen and Jens are now Dr. Theiß, Dr. Pikora, Dr. Kandade Rajan, Dr. Withopf, and Dr. Reermann.
  • 2017 was also a rather successfull year in terms of publications: the chair was involved in two book chapters and 20 conference and journal publications. Additonally, one book (de Guyter) and one special issue of the IEEE signal processing magazine was (co-) edited by our group.
  • Another record was the number of bachelor and master theses that our chair supervised in 2017. 21 theses started in 2017: eight bachelor theses and 13 master theses.
