Message from the President (2019-2020) of APSIPA

Wan-Chi Siu, President (2018-2019), APSIPA

On behalf of the Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association (APSIPA), it is my great pleasure and honor to welcome each one of you to the APSIPA Annual Summit and Conference 2019 (APSIPA ASC 2019) held in Lanzhou, China. Lanzhou is located on the banks of the Yellow River, and it was historically a major link on the Northern Silk Road,

APSIPA ASC 2019 will be the 11th conference organized by APSIPA. APSIPA ASC 2018 was held as the 10th anniversary conference in its birthplace, Hawaii, where the idea of APSIPA was discussed for the first time during IEEE ICASSP 2007. On behalf of the Association, we take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed their dedicated effort to make APSIPA a great success. I am happy to start a new stage of our Association in this historical city with many attendees from a lot of countries. I am sure that APSIPA will continue to thrive and evolve, and will provide a greater leadership to the signal and information processing R&D community.

I am glad to know that the number of submissions is the largest one in our past conferences. I sincerely thank the conference organizers, leading by the General Co-Chairs: Prof. Thomas Fang Zheng, Prof. Hongzhi Yu, Prof. Jianwu Dang and Prof. Wan-Chi Siu. I would like also to thank the keynote speakers, the invited speakers, the authors and all the participants for their support.

I hope that everyone attending the conference will enjoy the conference and Lanzhou, and make new friends on this occasion. Many senior researchers and educators with very rich experience are a part of the APSIPA community. APSIPA will offer members the opportunity to network and make connections with such senior people. We look forward to working with many active people, and to furthering technological progress in the Asia-Pacific region.

Together, we will make this APSIPA ASC 2019 a successful event!

Hitoshi Kiya

President (2019-2020), APSIPA
