IEEE SPS Signal Processing Cup (SP Cup) at ICASSP 2023 – Psychosis Classification Challenge

Call for Participation


The Signal Processing Society is pleased to announce the 5-Minute Video Clip Contest (5-MICC) at ICASSP in the Greek Island of Rhodes, June 04 – 10, 2023. The 5-MICC aims to encourage the signal processing community to explain concepts in an innovative way using a video. The winners will be selected based on the quality of their project, novelty, clarity of presentation, and creativity.

The topic chose this year is Psychosis Classification Challenge. This competition aims to evaluate the ability rsfMRI to develop valid neuroimaging diagnostic tools to differentiate schizophrenia (SZ) and bipolar psychosis (BPP) using a large dataset of individuals with fully developed symptoms that allowed near to perfect classification using DSM criteria. The competition will also be aligned with the brain-themed workshop organized for ICASSP, co-sponsored by IEEE Brain: Data Science and Learning Workshop (DSLW): Unraveling the Brain. IEEE Brain is a growing IEEE-level technical community currently supported by nine IEEE societies, and this proposal can increase activity in this important area within the SPS community.

Full team eligibility criteria is available in the official the SPS website.
