1st IEEE International Conference on Emerging Signal Processing Applications ESPA 2012 Call for Participation January 12-14, 2012 Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA http://www.ieee-espa.org/ Sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society The 1st International Conference on Emerging Signal Processing Applications (ESPA) is primarily serving practicing engineers and will have a strong emphasis on applications and cutting edge practical SP. ESPA is co-located with and follows the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to enable attendees to attend both CES and ESPA and learn about SP technology in the latest products announced in CES, as well as the SP technologies that may help create future CES products. Attendees will learn about emerging applications of Signal Processing including (but not limited to): 3D technology for gaming, telepresence Gesture recognition for games and natural user interfaces Digital photography 4G wireless Robotics Multimedia tablets SP in automobiles: speech interfaces, cameras Voice search SP with multicore processors IPTV Attendees will learn about the current technologies from the major industry and academic players in the field, and about the future directions from visionary keynote speakers. In addition to keynotes, panel discussions on hot topics, and tutorials, we would like to focus attention on the following two important parts of ESPA: Presentations with or without an associated paper. Unlike other IEEE SP conferences which require a paper submission, ESPA provides the option of oral presentation only, to enable presentations on new technologies announced at CES. Show & Tell: A highlight of ESPA will be demonstrations of novel applications of signal processing.
