Anaheim, California, USA

We invite symposium proposals for the sixth IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP) which will be held in Anaheim, CA, on November 26-28, 2019. GlobalSIP is a flagship IEEE Signal Processing Society conference that focuses on signal and information processing with an emphasis on up-and-coming signal processing themes. The conference features world-class plenary speeches, distinguished symposium talks, tutorials, exhibits, oral and poster sessions, and panels. GlobalSIP is comprised of co-located General Symposium and symposia selected based on responses to the call-for-symposia proposals. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Signal and information processing for
    • communications and networks, including green communications
    • optical communications
    • forensics and security
    • finance
    • energy, power systems, smart grid
    • neural networks, deep learning
    • genomics and bioengineering (physiological, pharmacological and behavioral)
  • Image and video processing
  • Selected topics in speech processing and human language technologies
  • Human machine interfaces
  • Multimedia transmission, indexing, retrieval, and quality of experience
  • Selected topics in statistical signal processing
  • Cognitive communications and radar
  • Graph-theoretic signal processing
  • Machine learning
  • Compressed sensing and sparsity aware processing
  • Seismic signal processing
  • Big data and social media challenges
  • Hardware and real-time implementations
  • Other (industrial) emerging applications of signal and information processing.

Symposium proposals should contain the following information: Title; duration (e.g., full day or half day); paper length, acceptance rate; name, address, and a short CV (up to 250 words) of the organizers, including the technical chairs (if any); a 1-page or 2-page description of the topics to be addressed, including timeliness and relevance to the signal processing community; names of (potential) members of the technical program committee; invited speakers’ names; a draft call for papers.
