The 3rd International Conference on Signal Processing and Machine Learning (CONF-SPML 2023) was a hybrid conference which includes several workshops (offline and online) around the world. Prof. Ziyi Yang from Beijing Institute of Technology and Prof. Marwan Omar from Illinois Institute of Technology have chaired these workshops on related topics. CONF-SPML 2023 provided the participants with good opportunities to exchange ideas and build networks, and it will lead to further collaborations between both universities and other societies.

The workshop "Space-Air-Ground Integrated Wireless Communication" was successfully held on March 23, 2023, in the Information Science Laboratory Building of Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China, with Miss Ziyi Yang as the chair. Several wireless communication colleagues participated in this workshop, including teachers and students from BIT. The workshop discussed space-air-ground integrated wireless communication combined with the frontier of wireless communication. Some of the communication topics discussed include security and efficiency issues. The modulation, demodulation, and resource allocation strategies of different systems were studied.

A workshop on how to build a digital forensics lab is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the process of designing, building, and operating a digital forensics lab. The workshop would typically cover a wide range of topics, including the physical security of the lab, the selection of appropriate equipment and software, the hiring and training of staff, and the development of procedures and protocols for handling digital evidence.

The workshop would begin with an overview of digital forensics, its history, and its importance in modern-day investigations. The instructors would then discuss the physical security requirements for a digital forensics lab, including the location of the lab, access control measures, and environmental controls.

Next, the workshop would cover the hardware and software tools required to build a digital forensics lab, including forensic workstations, write blockers, imaging tools, and network forensic tools. The instructors would provide guidance on selecting the appropriate equipment and software based on the specific needs of the organization.

The workshop would then move on to a discussion of the skills and qualifications required for personnel working in a digital forensics lab, as well as training and certification programs available to forensic investigators. Participants would learn about the importance of ongoing training and professional development to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in digital forensics.

Online Session

The online session of the 3rd International Conference on Signal Processing and Machine Learning (CONF-SPML 2023) was held on February 25, 2023. Prof. Brian A. Barsky from University of California, Prof. Roman Bauer from University of Surrey, Prof. Festus Adedoyin from Bournemouth University, Prof. Arshad Hassan Khan from FAST-NUCES and Prof. Mazhar Javed Awanv from University of Management & Technology have given keynote speeches on related topics of machine learning applications, computational modelling of neural development, etc. Also, we invited authors of qualified papers to deliver oral presentations at the Online Session. Eight authors have presented their studies of consumer behavior, marketing, currency, digital economy, etc. Questions from the audience were collected and answered by the presenters.
