Technical Program

The SAM Workshop is an important IEEE Signal Processing Society event dedicated to sensor array and multichannel signal processing. The organizing committee invites the international community to contribute with state-of-the-art developments in the field. SAM 2022 will feature plenary talks by leading researchers in the field as well as poster and oral sessions with presentations by the participants.

Welcome to Trondheim (Vibrant City with Small-Town Heart)!

Trondheim is Norway’s third-largest city and stands out with its progressive nature and vibrant city life while still embodying its small-town heart. In Trondheim, the fusion of history, arts, technology and green initiatives ignites a culture of innovation and rich tradition. Trondheim was once the Viking capital of Norway, but even before the Pilgrims and the Viking Age, people were drawn to the region because of the seafood- rich fjords and vast mountains filled with wildlife and some of the most fertile soil in the country. Trondheim is bustling with youth and fresh ideas, a thriving tech community, and innovative start-up incubators and co-working spaces (primarily due to being the home of NTNU, the largest university in Norway, with its strategic research in areas such as energy, health, oceans, and sustainability).
