IEEE Signal Processing Regional Meeting on Deep Learning and Biomedical Signals 2021 is the first edition of regional meeting, organized by IEEE Signal Processing Society Student Chapter under IEEE Vardhaman Student Branch in association with IEEE Vardhaman SB WIE, Computer Society and Education Society Chapter, from 14th to 16th June 2021. It is part of the Student Professional Awareness Conference (SPAC) 2021, which is being funded by IEEE Signal Processing Society and IEEE Students Technical consortium that encourages women and men in engineering disciplines to share their ideas and build up a professional network to enhance their skills.

The theme of the event “Deep Learning and Biomedical Signals” demonstrates the strength arising from working together as a community, which surely can mark a significant change within us before this year comes to an end. The track focusing on women empowerment in the domains of biomedical signals and deep learning in healthcare can help women advance in their careers and encourage IEEE members in their development goals.
