EUSIPCO 2019 A Coruña — Call for Participation
We would like to invite you to the 27th European Signal Processing Conference, EUSIPCO 2019, to be held in the charming city of A Coruña, Spain, from September 2 to 6, 2019.
EUSIPCO is the the flagship conference of EURASIP and offers a comprehensive technical program addressing all the latest developments in research and technology for signal processing.
EUSIPCO 2019 will feature world-class speakers, oral and poster sessions, plenaries, exhibitions, demonstrations, tutorials, and satellite workshops, and is expected to attract many leading researchers and industry figures from all over the world.

For this year’s edition of the conference we are proud to announce the following Keynote Speakers:

  • Josiane Zerubia: Marked Point Process Models in Image Processing. Application to Remote Sensing
  • Yurii Nesterov: Relative Smoothness: New Paradigm in Convex Optimization
  • Raymond Knopp: Academic Research, Standardization and Open-Prototyping
  • Alejandro Ribeiro: Graph Neural Networks

  • We are looking forward to meeting you in A Coruña for EUSIPCO in September 2019!
