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 2016 will feature plenary talks by leading researchers in the field as well as poster and oral sessions with presentations by the participants.


Welcome to Rio de Janeiro! – The workshop will be held at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, located in Gávea, in a superb area surrounded by beaches, mountains and the Tijuca National Forest, the world’s largest urban forest.  Rio de Janeiro is a world renowned city for its culture, beautiful landscapes, numerous tourist attractions and international cuisine. The workshop will take place during the first half of July about a month before the 2016 Summer Olympic Games when Rio will offer plenty of cultural activities and festivities, which will make SAM 2016 a memorable experience.
