The 17th International Conference on Systems, Signals and Image Processing – IWSSIP 2010

The 17th International Conference on Systems, Signals and Image Processing,
IWSSIP 2010 (http://www.ic.uff.br/iwssip2010) is co-organised by the UFF, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, (June 17-19) in co-operation with IEEE Region 9 (Latin American), IEEE South Brazil Section,
IEEE Rio de Janeiro Section, IEEE Bahia Section, SBC, ABCM, SBEB, ABEPRO and LATEC.

IWSSIP (http://www.iwssip.org/) is an International Conference on the theoretical, experimental and applied signal and image processing techniques and systems which brings together researchers and developers from both academia and industry to report on the latest scientific and theoretical advances, to discuss and debate major issues and to demonstrate state of-the-art systems.

As incorporated in its name, IWSSIP used to be a workshop; however, it has evolved to a conference in the course of time. The Programme Committee has therefore decided to change its official designation, but, considering the historical values exhibited by this event, the traditional abbreviation shall be maintained further on.

  • Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review.

For paper registration and electronic submission see http://confdriver.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/ starting January 2010.

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: “I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission.”

Duplicate submissions will be rejected. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the PC-chairs.

ACCEPTED PAPERS:

All accepted conference papers will be published in “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. Accepted papers will be of two sizes: regular (15-page papers) and short (up to 8 pages). The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature. Authors of accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form.
