The conference features world-class plenary speeches, distinguished Symposium talks, tutorials, exhibits, oral and poster sessions, and panels. GlobalSIP is comprised of co-located General Symposium and symposia selected based on responses to the call-for-symposia proposals. Featured symposia include:

  • General symposium
  • Sparse SP and deep learning
  • Graph signal processing
  • Distributed optimization and resource management over networks
  • Control & information theoretic approaches to privacy and security
  • SP for interference cancellation and full-duplex communication systems
  • SP for Accelerating Deep Learning
  • SP for Smart Cities & IoTs
  • SP & ML in large medical datasets
