Adaptive Signal Processing: Science and Technology

Adaptive Signal Processing (ASP) is an advanced field in Modern Digital Signal Processing. Usually talking on ASP, we mean Adaptive Filters (AF), whose weights are changed during the operations. The presentation considers the roots of ASP, key players in this area, such application of the AF as adaptive echo cancellation, channel equalization, antenna arrays, noise cancellation, active noise control and signal predistortion. Main sorts of adaptive filtering algorithms are listed. Peculiarities of non-stationary signals processing are discussed. The presentation is devoted to the 10-th years Anniversary of the Signal and Information Processing in Radio and Communication Engineering Section, created at EWDTS-2009. A brief the Section History is presented.

About the author: Victor Djigan was born in 1958 in the village of Sudilkov, Shepetovka District, Khmelnitsky Province, Ukraine. He received B.Sc. degree with honours from Vinnitsa Technical College of Electronic Devices (Ukraine) in 1978; M.Sc. degree with honours from National Research University of Electronic Technogy (Russia) in 1984; Ph.D. from National Research University of Electronic Technogy (Russia) in 1990 and D.Sc. degree from the Satellite Communication R&D Center (Russia) in 2006, all in radio engineering. From 1984 onwards he has been holding different R&D positions in a number of Russian and International Companies. These include such companies as Samsung Electronics, LG, PMC-Sierra and Huawei inside and outside Russia, where he worked in the field of digital signal processing.

At present, he is a Principal Researcher of Institute for Design Problems in Microelectronics of Russian Academy of Sciences and a Professor of National Research University of Electronic Technogy. He is a member of the Russian A.S. Popov Society for Radioengineering, Electronics & Communications and a Senior IEEE member. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of the two Russian journals and a Section Chair and a member of the Program Committee of a number of Russian and International Conferences, including EWDTS since 2009. His scientific interests are adaptive signal processing, speech processing and digital communication. Dr. Djigan is the author of about 240 papers publications, including 6 books and 6 patent, in the above-mentioned fields.
