Signal processing is the key to success for the efficient storage, transmission, and manipulation of information. The liveliness of signal processing relies on having a large number of students who undertake this research and embark on this career path. Signal processing is part of the curriculum in many undergraduate engineering programs. Some of the students also do their capstone or final-year projects on signal processing. To increase students? interest in signal processing and to get them to better appreciate its applications in real life, the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has created an undergraduate competition, referred to as the Signal Processing Cup (SP Cup) [1], which provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to form teams and work together to solve a challenging and interesting real-world problem using signal processing techniques and methods. The first competition was held at the International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2014. Based on its success, it has now been instated as an annual event at ICASSP conferences.
