Call for Symposium Proposals - GlobalSIP 2016

The fourth IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP) will be held in Greater Washington, DC, USA on December 7–9, 2016. GlobalSIP has rapidly assumed flagship status within the IEEE Signal Processing Society. It focuses on signal and information processing and up-and-coming signal processing themes. The conference aims to feature world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and oral and poster sessions. GlobalSIP is comprised of co-located symposia selected based on responses to the Call for Symposium Proposals. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Signal processing in communications and networks, including green communications, and signal processing in massive MIMO and millimeter-wave technology
  • Big data signal processing
  • Signal processing in information secrecy, privacy and security
  • Information forensics
  • Image and video processing
  • Selected topics in speech and language processing
  • Signal processing in finance
  • Signal processing in energy and power systems
  • Signal processing in genomics and bioengineering
  • Selected topics in statistical signal processing
  • Graph-theoretic signal processing
  • Machine learning
  • Compressed sensing, sparsity analysis and applications
  • Music and multimedia transmission, indexing and retrieval, and playback challenges
  • Real-time DSP implementations
  • Other novel and significant applications of selected areas of signal processing

Symposium proposals should have the following information: title of the symposium; length of the symposium; paper length requirement; names, addresses, and a short CV (up to 250 words) of the organizers including the general organizers and the technical chairs of the symposium; a two-page description of the technical issues that the symposium will address, including timeliness and relevance to the signal processing community; names of (potential) participants on the technical program committee; names of the invited speakers; and a draft Call for Papers. Please pack everything together in pdf format, and email the proposals to conference TPC Chairs at More detailed information can be found in the GlobalSIP Symposium Proposal Preparation Guide, available at
