About us

The Institute of Signal Processing (ISP) focuses on the algorithmic-, architectural- and hardware-oriented aspects of signal processing systems. Application areas are information and communication systems, radio frequency and baseband integrated circuits, bio- and sensor-signal processing as well as automotive applications. Our vision is to work on both long term fundamental research projects as well as on short term topics, the latter in close cooperation with industry partners.

In teaching we are involved in the Bachelor and Master programs Information Electronics, Computer Science and Mechatronics, where we are committed to giving high quality lectures and lab courses.

We are located in the JKU Science Park in Linz, Austria, which provides an excellent working environment and a perfect atmosphere for creativity and development.

In 2018, the ISP celebrated its 5th anniversary. 5 years full of research, ideas, projects, teaching and social events, which have been summarized in this anniversary report.

For many people it is unclear what the term signal processing stands for, altough it affects everybodys life on a daily basis. The following video from the IEEE signal processing society may clarify the ideas behind signal processing.
