  • Audio and acoustic signal processing
  • Bio-imaging and signal processing
  • Signal processing education
  • Speech processing
  • Industry technology tracks
  • Information forensics and security
  • Machine learning for signal processing
  • Multimedia signal processing
  • Sensor array & multichannel signal processing
  • Design & implementation of signal processing systems
  • Signal processing for communications & networking
  • Image, video & multidimensional signal processing
  • Signal processing theory & methods
  • Spoken language processing

Vancouver: Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is surrounded by dense pine forests, snow-capped mountains and fjords. The ocean and the mountains surround the city while the expanses of the trees cover it. It is a city with vast beaches and lush parks combined with magnificent architecture. Vancouver is the place to enjoy the golden era of signal processing as our field (as well as to explore British Columbia) and is waiting to welcome you and your family.

Submission of Papers: Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, with up to four pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references. A selection of best papers will be made by the ICASSP 2013 committee upon recommendations from Technical Committees.

Notice: 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 the conference will be subscribed to a "No-Show List", compiled by the Society. The "no-show" papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEEXplore or other public access forums, but these papers will be distributed as part of the on-site electronic proceedings and the copyright of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.

Tutorial and Special Sessions Proposals: Tutorials will be held on May 26 and 27, 2013. Brief tutorial proposals should be submitted by September 10, 2012, to tutorials@icassp2013.com and must include title, outline, contact information, biography and selected publications for the presenter(s), and a description of the tutorial and material to be distributed to participants. Special sessions proposals should be submitted by September 18, 2012, to specialsessions@icassp2013.com and must include a topical title, rationale, session outline, contact information, and a list of invited papers. Refer to the ICASSP 2013 website for additional information.
