GlobalSIP 2018:

Multispectral and Hyperspectral Imaging and Analysis

[Download the PDF Call for Papers]

Diverse Applications, Common Approaches? Multispectral and Hyperspectral imaging methods are widely used in diverse applications including airborne and satellite remote sensing, biological microscopy, and diagnostic biomedical imaging systems. There has been a corresponding growth in algorithms and architectures for processing and analyzing multi- and hyper-spectral images, and there is abundant opportunity for researchers to learn image processing problems, approaches, insights, and algorithm designs from other areas. The goal of this symposium is to provide an opportunity for researchers to share insights across disciplines and application areas. Impact: The impact of multi- and hyper-spectral imaging is already impressive. Satellite-based and airborne platforms are enabling remote sensing of changes, anomalies, and trends in agricultural, mineral, military, and civilian land-use patterns. Similarly, in the biomedical multi- and hyperspectral imaging methods are enabling the spatial distribution and dynamics of multiple molecular markers in a manner that preserves their relative spatial context, in living biological systems (in vivo or in vitro), and/or fixed tissue samples of biomedical interest (e.g., biopsies), and are finding applications in basic scientific discovery, drug screening, and biomolecular tissue profiling. Invitation: Researchers in signal processing and diverse application domains are invited to submit their contributions.

Submissions are welcome on topics including:

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (up to 4 pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references) and extended abstracts (up to 2 pages, for paper-less industry presentations and Ongoing Work presentations).. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. Accepted full-length papers will be indexed on IEEE Xplore. Accepted abstracts will not be indexed in IEEE Xplore, however the abstracts and/or the presentations will be included in the IEEE SPS SigPort. Accepted papers and abstracts will be scheduled in lecture and poster sessions.
