The signal processing and information networking laboratory (spinlab) was founded in 2002 by Prof. D. Richard Brown III with the purpose of bringing motivated undergraduate and graduate students together to work on fundamental and applied problems in signal processing, communication systems, and networking. Spinlab is located on the third floor of the Atwater Kent Laboratories building at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

As of January 2016, Prof. D. Richard Brown III is at the National Science Foundation serving as a Program Officer in the Communications and Information Foundations cluster of the Computing and Communications Foundations division of the Computer and Information Science and Engineering directorate. Prof. Brown is currently on leave from WPI through an Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) assignment.

Spinlab funding is currently provided by the National Science Foundation and the Army Research Office. Prior funding has been received from DARPA, Raytheon BBN Technologies, Bose, Inc, and General Electric Industrial Systems. The generous support provided by these sponsors has funded the degrees of several graduate students as well as the senior project work of dozens of undergraduate students.
