Archives:TICSP Reprints from the Early Days of Information Technologies

The Tampere International Center for Signal Processing (TICSP) was a specific research unit within the Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) in Tampere, Finland, aimed at gathering together international experts working in signal processing and related areas, including equally theoretical investigations and practical applications.

The Tampere International Center for Signal Processing (TICSP) was a specific research unit within the Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) in Tampere, Finland, aimed at gathering together international experts working in signal processing and related areas, including equally theoretical investigations and practical applications.

A natural next step for TISCP was to present the research results in two series of publications, Research Monographs and Workshop Proceedings, and to make them freely accessible from the web site of TICSP.

Those two series led to the idea of issuing another series of TICSP publications under a generic title Reprints from the Early Days of Information Technologies with each issue devoted to a particular research topic or a renowned researcher and the researcher’s contributions to the subject. The primary editors of this series were Professor Jaakko Astola, director of TICSP) and Dr. Radomir S. Stanković (a TICSP researcher). They were guided in this series by the general idea that looking into past helps to determine roads to the future, which they felt was also is correct in the more specific case of technology—knowing the ways of thinking of scholars in the past might help reveal new ideas or avoid unfruitful approaches. They believe that a researcher needs to know the work and activities of current colleagues equally important, know the work of “previous” colleagues—to know to some level of depth the history of the field.

Here is a more complete description of TICSP and its Reprints series: The Work in History of Information Sciences at TICSP by Radomir S. Stanković.

Twelve such Reprints from the Early Days of Information Technologies were produced.
