  • APSIPA is a technical sponsor of IEEE ICME 2017 [posted on 15 Sept 2016]

  • ATSIP has now been accepted for inclusion in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). This is a new database in the Web of Science Core Collection from Thomson Reuters. ESCI complements other Thomson Reuters indexes by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of the Science Citation Index (SCI). We are still awaiting an answer on our initial application made to the SCI and we will try to obtain an answer from Thomson Reuters as soon as possible. Just to be clear, inclusion in the ESCI does not mean that the journal is included in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) - the database that leads to a journal being given an impact factor. What it does mean, however, is that the journal is now more discoverable, which will hopefully lead to more citations, thus strengthening our case for inclusion in the SCI and JCR. ATSIP papers published from 2016 onwards will now be included in the ESCI.

    More information on the ESCI can be found here:

  • Call for Nominations of Members-at-Large for the Board of Governors (BoG Members) [posted on 31 Oct 2015]

    According to APSIPA Bylaws, BoG Members are elected by direct vote of the voting Members of the Association. One third of BoG Members will be elected annually. Current BoG Members who are completing their first term can stand for second term re-election. In 2015, 6 BoG Members will complete their term of service 2013-2015. APSIPA now calls for nomination of BoG Members from all members of the Association. We will elect 6 BoG Members, the four nominees who receive the highest number of votes will serve for a term of 3 years (2016-2018) while the next two will serve for a term of 1 year (2016).

    The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Kiyoharu Aizawa and Anthony Kuh who have served as BoG Members for two terms. They will retire as BoG Members by end of 2015. The Board would also like to thank Mrityunjoy Chakraborty, Homer Chen, Hsueh-Ming Hang and Tomoaki Ohtsuki for having served as BoG Members for their first term. They are eligible for re-election.

    Please submit your nomination form to the Secretary Bonnie Law at email: by 15 November 2015. The election is supervised by the Award and Election Committee chaired by the Past-President Prof. C.C. Jay Kuo. The nominees must be members of the Association who have agreed to serve if elected. Next is the timeline of election.

    1) Nomination Period: 11/1-11/15
    2) Election Period: 11/16-11/30
    3) Announcement: 11/30

    By nominating a candidate, you can help APSIPA to continue to advance its mission to promote broad spectrum of research and education activities in signal and information processing in Asia Pacific.
