Are there some good sites or blogs where I can keep myself updated on the latest news and papers about image and signal processing research, or I should just check out "classical" providers like IEEE Transactions, Elsevier, etc?
There are many for different subjects -
Efg's algorithm collection : http://www.efg2.com/Lab/Library/ImageProcessing/index.html
DSP Forum : http://www.dsprelated.com/
Data compression - http://datacompression.info/
About rendering - http://www.realtimerendering.com/portal.html
For all research papers - http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/Xplore/guesthome.jsp
Resources on Mp3 and Audio - http://www.mp3-tech.org/programmer/docs/index.php

Image Processing with Matlab, Open Blog - http://imageprocessingblog.com/
Igor over at Nuit Blanche does a good job keeping up with publications in the field of Compressive Sensing.
Check out the Image Processing blog by Steve Eddins from The Mathworks.
Image Processing with Matlab, Open Blog. hands-on, with the Matlab code of the problem and with clear, easy to follow documentation. Open for people to present their work in image processing with Matlab.
- Machine Vision 4 Users is a very practical blog on machine vision. Regular posts on camera's, lenses, software, lighting and the wole package that is necessary when developing machine vision setups.
- CVPapers is a site with free downloadable papers about the latest computer vision conferences, which can be useful if you do not have access to very expensive paper databases.
- Blog of Teledyne Dalsa has very wide subjects, but sometimes has posts that are very detailed about image processing.
The one that has just started and is good for not only signal processing but also other fields of electrical engineering is Minutify. The link to the website is: http:www.munitify.com The sections on this website/blog are: DSP, Communications, Analog, RF, ASIC and looks like each article is written by an expert in his/her field.
i dunno why the original DSP "blog" (it's actually more of a BBS) on USENET is not mentioned. that is the newsgroup comp.dsp . one can get it the traditional way (an NNTP server like Eternal September) but you will need a mail client that knows how to do NNTP (the one i am using is Thunderbird) or with Google Groups which has gotten progressively suckier as time rolls on. DSP Related (mentioned above) also has a port to comp.dsp. the newsgroup is unmoderated so sometimes we just shoot the shit and discuss life (sometimes through the engineering lens).
To complete the list I'd like to add a couple of weblogs that I personally follow:
1.Aishack (covers basic to advanced algorithms, intuitively and practically)
2.Py Image Search A blog, specialized on AI, image processing and computer vision with stress on python implementation.
3.Shervin Emami's blog I'm not sure if it is still being updated.
4.Fun Vision is also a good place I assume.
