    A message from the ICASSP 2021 General Chairs & Signal Processing Society

    As we collectively navigate the impact from COVID-19, our goal is to offer affordable pricing for the 2021 event while still delivering a best-in-class virtual experience. While author registration is still needed, it can be applied to up to four co-authored papers, and we have significantly reduced the non-author fee to remain inclusive to our community of over 16,000 attendees. We have also enabled discounted and free registration options for Low Income Countries as defined by World Bank to encourage participation worldwide. We thank you for your support and look forward to an excellent event.

    We are so thankful to the robust ICASSP community of authors, attendees, speakers, and sponsors who have continued to stay engaged and involved during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your safety and wellbeing is the most important to us, and therefore we have made the decision to transition ICASSP 2021 to a fully virtual conference. We are grateful to our 2021 host city of Toronto, Canada, and look forward to holding ICASSP there in the future.

    The ICASSP 2021 virtual conference will incorporate best-in-class features including:

    • Live and pre-recorded speaker presentations with Q&A opportunities
    • Attendee networking capabilities for one-to-one networking and group sessions
    • On-demand recordings providing the ability to watch sessions at your convenience
    • Interactive sponsor and exhibitor spaces
    • Virtual cultural experiences
    • And much more

    The 2020 virtual conference had more than 16,000 attendees, highlighting the immense opportunity to connect the signal processing community from around the world. We’ll be taking what we learned from 2020 to improve and enhance the experience in 2021. We are excited to innovate by creating an engaging virtual conference that will be rewarding for presenters, attendees and sponsors.

    Guidance for authors of accepted papers and general information about attendee registration will be provided soon.

    ICASSP 2021 will still be held during the original dates, 6-11 June 2021. The authors and attendees will have a golden opportunity to share and discuss their research outcomes with fellow researchers, experts and students around the world. We look forward to connecting with you in June.
