Kyoto Celebrated ICASSP 2012

The 37th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) was held at the Kyoto International Conference Center in Kyoto, Japan, on March 25 - 30, 2012. As the flagship conference of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, ICASSP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications.

For ICASSP 2012, 2670 regular paper submissions (not including special session papers) were received. Submission figures are listed below with topics mostly represented by a Technical Committee (TC) of Signal Processing Society:

Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing (AASP) 292
Bio Imaging and Signal Processing (BISP) 119
Design and Implementation of Signal Processing Systems (DISPS) 54
Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing (IVMSP) 450
Industry Technology Track (ITT) 36
Information Forensics and Security (IFS) 79
Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP) 168
Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) 80
Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing (SAM) 171
Signal Processing Education (SPED) 14
Signal Processing for Communications and Networking (SPCOM) 222
Signal Processing Theory and Methods (SPTM) 366
Speech Processing (SP) 505
Spoken Language Processing (SLP) 114
Special Sessions 65


This year’s ICASSP set an acceptance rate at 49% in order to ensure its quality as a flagship conference. After some adjustments among TCs, a total of 1370 including special session papers were finally accepted. The Organizing Committee worked closely with the TC review coordinators and greatly appreciate their full cooperation and timely responses to all of our requests. They managed to obtain three reviews for most papers and sometimes even more for critical cases.

As a complement to the regular papers in the technical program, twelve special sessions have been included.  Prior to the start of the regular technical program, fifteen half day tutorials will be held on Sunday and Monday.

This year’s conference also featured a workshop: “Signal Processing Education: Asian Perspectives and Practices.” This workshop was planned to commemorate an ICASSP in an Asian country and provides participants with opportunities to share Asian perspectives and practices in signal processing education and networking among educators, engineers, and students.

The “Show & Tell” event on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon was organized by Local Arrangement Chair, Yoshinobu Kajikawa, and will put the icing on the cake. Show & Tell presentations include hardware/software demonstrations of some of the state-of-the-art technologies by research groups in industry, academia and government.
