Welcome to the APSIPA Annual Summit and Conference 2013 located in the Kaohsiung. It is the second largest city in Taiwan. The city’s tourist attractions are located close to the harbor area. Just north of the harbor, Shoushan, or Monkey Mountain, has hiking trails that provide beautiful views of the city, and National Sun Yat-sen University is also inside the area. Kaohsiung always allows people to feel cozy and relaxed while bringing endless pleasant surprises at the same time. Kaohsiung residents, who are zealous and hospitable, like to keep their houses neat and tidy in order to warmly entertain their friends. When you enter Kaohsiung from the airport, station, highway, or harbor, you can always feel excited. What a sparkling city! Numerous modernized tall buildings, straight and clean roadways, and a green atmosphere seem to open a gate of grandeur and welcome visitors from everywhere.

APSIPA ASC 2013 will be the fifth annual conference organized by Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association (APSIPA). Founded in 2009, APSIPA aims to promote research and education on signal processing, information technology and communications. The annual conference was previously held in Japan (2009), Singapore (2010), China (2011), and USA (2012). The field of interest of APSIPA concerns all aspects of signals and information including processing, recognition, classification, communications, networking, computing, system design, security, implementation, and technology with applications to scientific, engineering, and social areas. Accepted papers in regular sessions and in special sessions will be published in APSIPA ASC 2013 proceedings which will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Submission of Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit either full papers, up to 10 pages in length, or short papers up to 4 pages in length, where full papers will be for the single-track oral presentation and short papers will be mostly for poster presentation. The conference is also inviting student researchers to submit 1-page-short-paper to the Student Symposium. Paper submissions to Student Symposium follow the same layout as that of the main conference. The 1-page extended abstract describing the technical contribution should be submitted to the same online paper submission. The conference proceedings of the main conference will be published, available and maintained at the APSIPA website. The proceedings will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
