The IEEE International Conference on Signal and Image Processing Applications (ICSIPA), organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society (Malaysia Section) provides a forum for local and international researchers and engineers from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest technological advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental and applied signal, image and video processing. IEEE ICSIPA 2013 is the third in the series and will be held in the Historical City of Melaka (Malacca), a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Malaysia. The previous two IEEE ICSIPA conferences, held in 2009 and 2011 at Kuala Lumpur, were major successes with over 50% and 70% international participation, respectively.

Proceedings of IEEE ICSIPA 2013 will be indexed by IEEExplore

IEEE ICSIPA 2013 is the third in the series and will be held in the Historical City of Melaka (Malacca), a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Malaysia. The city is a major tourist attraction in Malaysia and boasts of a wide range of activities for all ages, from historical ruins, cultural villages and museums, to water parks, zoo and a modern city.

Author Instructions

Paper Submission:
For paper submission guidelines, instructions and template, please use the Paper Submissions link on the left panel. The papers need to be submitted online via the EDAS system, where they will be reviewed, and the decisions and reviewers comments would be sent to the corresponding author.

Preparing for the Conference:
Upon paper acceptance, authors who have their paper accepted may start preparing for the conference. Below is a simple checklist and guideline for reference:

Revise your paper
Take into account the suggestions and corrections highlighted by the reviewers.
The length of the final paper should be no more than 6 pages in A4 size, including figures, tables and references.
Verify the format of your paper
The camera ready paper must be IEEE Xplore compatible.
This can be done through IEEE PDF eXpress Plus service. The detailed user guide to the PDF eXpress can be found here.
Register and pay the conference fee
All registration must be done through EDAS.
All payments must also be done through EDAS (the USD rates apply).
However local participants paying in Malaysian Ringgit can also pay directly to the conference account. Please email the proof of payment to
For IEEE members, please update your EDAS profile to include your IEEE membership ID.
For student author, please email the scanned copy of your student identification card to .
The receipt for the payment will be given during the conference.
Upload the camera ready paper
The camera ready paper must be uploaded only through EDAS.
Please complete the IEEE Electronic Copyright Transfer Form (eCF) in EDAS.
Arrange your travel and accommodation
Depending on your nationality, you may be required to apply for a visa in advance to enter Malaysia.
Accommodation can be booked either through the hotel’s official website or through the many hotel reservation sites such as, Agoda, etc.
Update the presenter information (in EDAS profile of the presenter)
Please state who among the authors will be attending and presenting your paper.
Make sure the presenter name is correct as it will be used in the certificate of attendance/presentation.
Please also update a short biography of the presenter in his/her EDAS profile.
Please indicate if the attendee/presenter requires vegetarian meals.
Prepare your presentation slides
Every presenter will be given 15 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for Q&A. Please prepare your slides to fit into the duration.
An effective oral presentation should be structured accordingly: opening, outline of main points, detail of main points, conclusion.
On the day of your presentation, please report to your assigned room 10-15 minutes before the session is scheduled to begin. Introduce yourself to the Session Chair, and check that any audio visual equipment you need to use is setup and working properly. Please load your presentation onto the hard drive so that the transition between presentations is smooth.

Sample of a brief biography: “Shahrul Anuar received the BEng. degree in electronic engineering from University of Nottingham, UK in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in computer vision from University of Manchester, UK in 2009. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at University of Malaya, Malaysia. His main research interests are in the area of signal processing, pattern recognition and computer vision.”
