ICASSP Event in Paris 2018
ICASSP is the acronym for International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing. The conference is organised by IEEE Signal Processing Society every year. According to the 2016 h-index, ICASSP ranked highest among other conferences in the Signal Processing field. The Brazilian Ministry of Education also gave it an A1 rating based on the h-index position. Just like other IEEE conferences, ICASSP features several technical sessions, tutorial talks and poster sessions led by prominent people in the focus areas. The conference is held for four to five days where tutorials talks are given on the first day while technical and poster sessions follow.


ICASSP 2018 marks the 20th conference since its inauguration. The conference will be held on 8-9th November in Paris, France with the theme Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence. The primary goal here is to bring together research scholars, prominent academic scientists, and researchers in a bid to share experiences and research results about various aspects of Signal Processing, Speech and Acoustics. It also provides an avenue for practitioners, educators and researchers from different disciplines to discuss and make presentations about recent trends, innovations, as well as challenges experienced and how they were solved in this field. The topics to be discussed during this year's conference include: • Acoustic and audio processing • Multichannel and sensor array signal processing • Biomedical and bio-imaging signal processing • Video, image and multi-dimensional signal processing • Education in signal processing • Applying machine learning in signal processing • Signal processing and remote sensing • Designing and implementing systems in signal processing • Signal processing for cybersecurity, smart systems and brain-machine interface • Processing spoken language • Signal processing methods and theory • Speech processing • Big data in signal processing • RFID and the Internet of Things • Imaging computation

ICASSP moved to Calgary

Initially, this year's conference was to be held in Seoul, South Korea. However, members requested the conference should be moved to another location, citing political tensions caused by the 2017 North Korea Crisis. As a result, the SPS EXCOM unanimously voted ICASSP move to a new location-Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Given that Korean SPS community engagement plays a major role in ICASSP conferences, the decision to move location was not easy. The organising committee factored in several aspects in consultation with the General Co-chairs of ICASSP 2018 for some time before reaching the decision. The committee also obtained information from similar conferences, as well as the event industry in South Korea about holding such a conference given the political environment in the country. What's more, some member expressed reluctance in travelling or sending their students to South Korea which weighed more on the need to move location. Given that high participation and technical program quality is imperative for this flagship conference, the organising committee's primary goal is to arrange for a conference that is rewarding and enjoyable to all members. Additionally, the General Co-chairs appreciated the decision to move the location of ICASSP 2018 and committed to bringing all their energies to the preparation activities required for the new location.

The ICASSP: Signal Processing Conference

The International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICAASP) is the yearly flagship conference of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The conference is usually dispersed over four or more days. Leading experts in the various applied fields of signal processing gather together to speak on and discuss developments in the field.



About and Brief History

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Professional Group on Audio of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) which preceded it, has for over 70 years been at the forefront of signal processing. It has educated both specialists in the field as well as the broader public and facilitated groundbreaking technological advances. The current membership of the IEEE is over 19,000 dynamic engineers, academic, professionals, and students from over 100 countries.


In 1976 the IEEE began a yearly conference to bring specialists from all over the world together in one event. The ICASSP is the broadest and most detailed technical conference on signal processing, and it’s varied applications. The conference is a joint effort of all of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Committees which include such fields as Bio-Imaging, Information Forensics and Security, Machine Learning for Signal Processing and Signal Processing for Communications and Networking, just to name a few.

All records which are taken of its events are recorded into the engineering bibliographic database EI Compendex. As of 2016, the conference has the highest h-index of any conference in the field of Signal Processing according to the Google Scholar’s H-index Matrix.

Conference Aims and Objectives

ICAASP aims to bring together leading researchers, academic scientists as well as research scholars to share and exchange their research results and experiences in all areas of Signal processing, Acoustics, and Speech. It also offers a platform for premier interdisciplinary interactions among practitioners, researchers, and educators to discuss and present the most recent concerns, innovations and trends as well as the challenges faced and solutions utilised in the fields of Signal Processing, Acoustics, and Speech.

Conference Locations

ICASSP 2017 was held from March 5th to 9th in New Orleans. The 2018 conference was initially to be held in Seoul, South Korea however due to rising political tensions the SPS Executive Committees voted unanimously to move it to another location.

After lengthy discussions and taking into account the last minute nature of the change Calgary, Alberta, Canada was selected to host the 2018 ICAASP from April 15–20.

The Future is Bright

Drawing from a rich 70-year history as well as the 41 years of success, ICASSP is considered to be the top conference in the signal processing field. It continues to draw together the best and brightest to push the industry forward into a bright, rich and fantastic future.
