    The past decade has witnesses the rapid growth of signal processing capacity for both communication and multimedia applications, such as 4G wideband communication and high-definition TV systems. This phenomenon leads to many potential problems, such as higher sampling power, high signal processing power, and severe interference in the channels. The possible solutions to these problems could be the exploitation of the sparse signal property, the optimization of the channel resource, or the power-efficiency design strategies for the signal processing system realization.
   The recent compressive sensing technique investigates the sparse signal property and redundant samplings in the traditional Nyquist sampling theory to greatly reduce the sampling and signal processing power via compression. On the other hand, the large-capacity and high-dimension MIMO transmission also faces interference and security problems. How to optimize the channel resource and avoid interference become important issues in the advanced MIMO communication system. In the practice, the signal processing implementation is also going to face the physical limitation of the silicon. The power consumption and signal processing power are the critical problems in raising the signal processing capability for multimedia and communication systems. Thus, compressive sensing-based ADC converter, lower-power DSP technique and multi-core signal processing systems are the possible ways to avoid the problems. Therefore, this summer school provide three main topics, the compressive sensing, the advanced MIMO signal processing, and design and implementation of signal processing systems, as the educational courses for the students and researchers in this area.
