Die Fachgruppe „Algorithmen für die Signalverarbeitung“ von VDE-ITG ist eine Gruppe von Forschern aus Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten und Industrie in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz zum Thema Signalverarbeitung. Diese Gruppe wurde im Jahr 1986 von Prof. Schüssler und Prof. Mecklenbräuker gegründet. Seitdem tagt die Fachgruppe zweimal im Jahr, abwechselnd an Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten oder in der Industrie. Bei jedem Treffen ist ein Mitglied der Fachgruppe der Gastgeber und er organisiert das wissenschaftliche Programm, bestehend aus Vorträgen und Demonstrationen aus seiner Organisation. Das Ziel der Fachgruppe ist ein besserer Wissensaustausch zwischen Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten und Industrie.
