International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP)

The 38th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) will be held in the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre, Vancouver, Canada, on May 26 - 31, 2013. ICASSP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications. The conference will feature world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and over 120 lecture and poster sessions. For more information visit http://www.icassp2013.com/

MathWorks Workshops

Join Dr. Houman Zarrinkoub as he demonstrates the latest features in MATLAB for modeling and simulation of DSP and communications systems. Please register at www.mathworks.com/company/events/seminars/seminar76783.html.
Real-Time DSP System Simulations in MATLAB
Monday, May 27, 1:00–2:30 p.m.
Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre – Room 111/112
In this session, we show how you can use MATLAB to develop real-time DSP algorithms and test benches with the latest features in DSP System Toolbox. We showcase an acoustic tracking system that uses the acoustic sensors in Microsoft Kinect.
Through demonstrations, you will learn how to:

  • Use a library of efficient algorithm components (System objects) to develop your real-time DSP IP
  • Automatically generate C code to accelerate simulation or to integrate your design with other software tools
  • Easily discover and interface to your signal processing hardware  
  • Test your design with real-time streaming data

Accelerating Communications System Simulations in MATLAB and Simulink
Monday, May 27, 3:00–4:30 p.m.
Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre – Room 111/112
In this session, you will learn various techniques you can use to accelerate your communications system simulations in MATLAB and Simulink. We showcase a series of six types of optimizations applied to accelerate the simulation of a 4G LTE control channel processing algorithm. We start with a baseline algorithm and through successive profiling and code updates introduce the following optimizations:

  • Better MATLAB serial programming techniques (vectorization, preallocation)
  • Use of System objects  
  • MATLAB to C-code generation (MEX)
  • Parallel computing (parfor, spmd)
  • GPU-optimized System objects
  • Rapid Accelerator mode for simulation in Simulink

Through demonstrations we also show that you can further accelerate your simulations by combining two or more of these techniques.
