SigPort for ICASSP 2018 Authors

ICASSP 2018 is working with the IEEE Signal Processing Society Repository (SigPort), to make conference presentations and posters available to all attendees. The authors are encouraged to upload your presentation slides and posters (in PDF format) to SigPort before April 14, 2018. This is a society-wide initiative, aiming at providing easier access to conference presentation slides and promoting visibility of authors’ work.

  3. Upload your presentation slides or posters (in PDF format) by selecting “Submit your work” on the top menu.
    When you upload a document, you need to choose the event – ICASSP 2018 and use the coupon code ICASSP18001

Please take care to read the No Show Policy from the IEEE Signal Processing Society!

If this is your first time to submit a paper to ICASSP 2018, please read the entire paper kit carefully to verify that your paper document is formatted correctly and that you have all the information you need before starting your paper submission. The paper kit contains detailed instructions on formatting your document and completing the submission process, as well as a description of how the review process works and how to prepare for your presentation at the conference if your paper is accepted.

If you are a returning author, you should review the paper kit, and note that the paper kit contains expanded information about the review process and preparing for a presentation at ICASSP 2018.

If you are submitting to a special session, you will receive separate instructions for submitting your paper. Please do not submit invited papers through the regular submission process unless indicated to do so.

ICASSP 2018 requires that each accepted paper be presented by one of the authors in-person at the conference site according to the schedule published. Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore.

It is encouraged to include discussions on how your contributions are related to prior work in the field. It is important to put new work in context, to give credit to foundational work, and to provide details associated with the previous work that has appeared in the literature. It is not required that the discussion of relation to prior work be in a separate section, but the discussion must appear in the paper. An optional 5th page may be included, but that page may contain only references.
