On behalf of our whole Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 2023 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP 2023), in the Greek island of Rhodes from June 04 to June 10, 2023. The flagship conference of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) will be held in-person at the Rodos Palace Luxury Convention Resort with a significant virtual component. The ICASSP 2023 organizing committee, together with our partners and volunteers, are honored to welcome you in Rhodes.
This 48th ICASSP is the first post-pandemic edition, celebrating the return to an in-person experience and the 75th anniversary of SPS. We are looking forward to welcome back the whole signal processing community in a single venue, after three very challenging years. We have prepared a high-quality international conference, coupled with many new scientific activities, networking opportunities and enjoyable social events. ICASSP’s main theme this year is “Signal Processing in the AI era,” promoting the creative synergy between signal processing and machine learning.
Featuring a variety of world-class events, ICASSP 2023 has attracted leading researchers and global industry pioneers. The interest in this year’s ICASSP has exceeded all expectations, with record breaking increases in participation in almost all aspects of the conference, including a close to 50% increase in submitted and accepted papers over the previous submission record and more than 4000 participants, of which more than 3700 in-person. This unprecedented increase reflects the central role of signal processing in the modern era, both in academia and industry, and the importance of our community in the development and success of AI.
In this ICASSP we offer a comprehensive technical program with more than 300 oral and poster sessions, complemented by plenaries and perspective talks, tutorials, panels, exhibitions and demonstrations, and industry workshops. These sessions showcase all the latest developments in research and technology for signal processing and its applications. We are also proud to inaugurate Satellite Workshops before and after the main conference, which add thematic diversity to ICASSP, increase and diversify its audience and allow ICASSP to broaden its appeal beyond the signal processing community. We also present several additional satellite events, continuing their recent success, such as entrepreneurship activities, diversity forums, and short courses, which enrich the program, attract a broader audience and provide inclusivity for students and young professionals. Numerous networking opportunities further facilitate interactions with friends and colleagues, as well as with sponsors and exhibitors. To celebrate SPS’s 75th anniversary, the conference features panels exploring the rich history of the society and a 75th anniversary lounge as a focal point of the conference venue.
The ICASSP 2023 social program highlights Greek cuisine, culture, and arts, combined with the breath-taking natural beauty of Rhodes. Rhodes island is the capital of the Dodecanese group of islands in the southeast Aegean archipelagos. It is located at the crossroads of major sea routes of the Mediterranean, being the meeting point of three continents where east meets west. Rich in historic heritage, it has experienced many civilizations, from ancient to modern times, and features a UNESCO-heritage medieval old town. It offers a cosmopolitan mix of a vibrant city lifestyle, beautiful landscape, idyllic endless beaches, historic tours, wonderful weather, easy access to other Greek islands and many other Mediterranean attractions. It is also known for its long experience in organizing large international scientific conferences and events. Rhodes airport has direct air connections to many European cities.
We have worked hard to develop a scientific and social program for ICASSP 2023 that all of you will enjoy. We invite you to join us in this symphony of outstanding science, engineering, and social interactions celebrating our post-pandemic reuniting. We are certain it will pleasantly remain in your memory for the years to come.
