Deadline extended

We have received many requests to extend the deadline for IEEE SiPS 2021. Given the continuing difficult times with the pandemic, the SiPS 2021 organizing committee has decided to extend the deadline until May 31 (final firm deadline). In these challenging times, we do realize that our research has been disrupted. Together, with your effort in submitting your new work, we will make IEEE SiPS 2021 another great event! We do emphasize that travelling is not required and all authors of accepted papers will be given the option to present virtually. Also, papers submitted before May 15 will be given special consideration for a potential submission of extended versions to the IEEE Open Journal of Circuits and Systems Special Section on Algorithms, Circuits, and Systems for Signal Processing at the Edge.

The organizing committee is constantly monitoring the worldwide vaccination programme and the pandemics evolution. Depending on the scenario, we expect to be able of hosting a physical event in Coimbra, in October 2021. But in any case, no author of an accepted paper at SiPS 2021 will be forced to travel. Thus, we expect to have a hybrid or a fully virtual event, which is going to be decided and announced later in the year.[More Info]

Author Instructions

Authors are invited to submit 6-page papers (including references), written in English. Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted, nor reviewed at all. All manuscripts should be original, unpublished and should not be submitted or under revision elsewhere. Please refer to the call for papers for a list of topics. [More Info]


Coimbra, Portugal

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Systems is expected to be held in Coimbra, located at the center of Portugal. Coimbra is a riverfront city in central Portugal and the country’s former capital. It preserves a medieval old town that hosts the historic University of Coimbra — Alta and Sofia UNESCO World Heritage —, the oldest university in Portugal, and one of the oldest in the world. Created by King Dinis in 1290, by signing the Scientiae Thesaurus Mirabilis, the University of Coimbra went through several relocations until it permanently settled in Coimbra in 1537.
