The 4th International Congress on Image and Signal Processing (CISP 2011) and 4th International Conference on BioMedical Engineering and Informatics (BMEI 2011) will be jointly held from 15-17 October 2011, in Shanghai, China. The deadline for the 2nd (final) round of submissions is 4 August 2011 (papers already submitted in the 1st round should not be re-submitted and will receive review notifications on 25 June; however, authors who have submitted in the 1st round are welcome to submit new papers in the 2nd round).
Shanghai is the largest city in China, with famous historical and cultural heritage. Attractions include Yuyuan Garden ("Happy Garden" built in Ming Dynasty), Shanghai Museum with 120,000 pieces of rare relics, Shanghai World Financial Center, Jade Buddha Temple (Song Dynasty), Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Zhujiajiao Water Town, and Expo 2010 site.
All papers in conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as included in the IEEE Xplore (IEEE Conference Record Number for CISP'11: 18205; IEEE Conference Record Number for BMEI'11: 18206. CISP-BMEI 2008-2010 papers have already been indexed in EI Compendex). Substantially extended versions of best papers will be considered for publication in a CISP'11-BMEI'11 special issue of the Computers and Electrical Engineering journal (SCI-indexed).
CISP-BMEI is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of multimedia, signal processing, biomedical engineering and informatics. The previous CISP-BMEI each attracted over 3000 submissions from all over the world, with acceptance rate around 50%. The registration fee of US$400 includes proceedings, lunches, dinners, banquet, coffee breaks, and all technical sessions. CISP'11-BMEI'11 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
To promote international participation of researchers from outside the country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China¹s mainland), researchers outside of China¹s mainland are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in China¹s mainland. All papers in the invited sessions can be marked as "Invited Paper". The organizer(s) for each invited session with at least 6 registered papers will (jointly) enjoy an honorarium of US*D 400. Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Invited session organizers will be able to set their own submission and review schedules, as long as a set of recommended papers is determined by 15 August 2011. Each invited session proposal should include: (1) the name, bio, and contact information of each organizer of the invited session; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. Please send your proposal to CISP-BMEI@dhu.edu.cn
