ChinaSIP 2013 Signal and Information Processing Conference

IEEE Signal Processing Society is pleased to introduce ChinaSIP 2013, the first IEEE China Summit & International Conference on Signal and Information Processing, 6-10 July 2013 at the China National Convention Center (CNCC), Beijing, China.

Sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS), ChinaSIP is a new annual summit and international conference held in China for domestic and international scientists, researchers, and practitioners to network and discuss the latest progress in theoretical, technological, and educational aspects of signal and information processing. ChinaSIP is a unique platform developed by IEEE SPS to help colleagues in China engage with the global community, and offer global colleagues opportunities to network and develop international collaborations.

As the inaugural summit and conference, ChinaSIP 2013’s features include:

● Technical tracks and industry forum. Papers and presentations along the regular technical tracks as listed below focus on novel and significant research contributions. An industry forum provides a platform for exchange and networking among SIP industries as well as between academia and industry.

● Invited papers and open-call papers. Special invitations will be extended to major research groups in China to submit their latest contributions. Invited papers will be peer reviewed, and only papers with sufficient quality and significance will be accepted. In parallel, papers are also accepted through an open call from the community at large on a competitive basis.

● Journal poster sessions. Journal poster sessions provide a venue for overview and showcase of recent publications accepted by SPS journals.

● Professional development program. Several professional development activities will be organized, such as townhall meetings with the SPS leadership, trends/ overview sessions, publication (EIC/ AE) panels, and Fellow development sessions.

● Summer schools. The conference will set up summer schools before the regular sessions begin for students, researchers and practitioners to learn state-of-the-art technologies and tools.

The regular technical program tracks and topics include (but are not limited to):

● Signal/ Information Processing Theory and Methods
● Speech, Language, and Audio
● Image, Video, and Multimedia
● Signal Processing for Communications and Networking
● Signal Sensing, Radar, Sonar, and Sensor Networks
● SIP Hardware/ Software Designs and Systems
● Information Forensics and Security
● Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning
● Signal/ Info Processing for Bioinformatics & Bio/ Medicine.

Submission of Papers

The official language of the conference is English. Prospective authors are invited to submit up to 4 pages in length (with an optional 5th page containing only references). The conference proceedings will be published at IEEE Xplore, and will be indexed by both IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex. The IEEE Signal Processing Society enforces a “no-show” policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend and present at the conference will be added to a "No-Show List", compiled by the Society. The "no-show" papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEE Xplore or other public access forums, but these papers will be distributed as part of the on-site electronic proceedings and the copyright of these papers will belong to the IEEE.
