SPS-DARTS 2005 Call for Papers and Demonstrations
SPS-DARTS 2005 is a conference focusing on signal processing research and development in the Benelux area. It is the result of a merger between DSP Valley's Annual Research & Technology Symposium (DARTS) and the IEEE BENELUX Signal Processing Symposium.
SPS-DARTS 2005 will be held on April 19-20, 2005 in Het Provinciehuis, Antwerp, Belgium. The program will consist of invited tutorials, selected oral papers and demonstrations. These will be scheduled in parallel tracks focusing on research and industrial developments in signal processing, respectively.
SPS-DARTS 2005 aims to be a high-level networking platform between industrial and academic players, where technology managers and decision makers can explore the newest signal processing technologies, discover common interest domains and complementary skills and expertise, and explore new opportunities for co-operation.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Digital Signal Processing: Filter design and structures, Fast algorithms, Multirate filtering and filter banks, Adaptive filters, Nonlinear Signals and Systems, Time-frequency analysis.
- Statistical Signal and Array Processing: Spectral estimation, Higher order spectrum analysis, Array signal processing, Statistical signal analysis, Parameter estimation, Detection, Signal and system modeling, System identification, Cyclostationary signal analysis.
- Speech processing: Speech production and perception, Speech analysis, Speech synthesis, Speech coding, Speech enhancement and noise reduction, Isolated word recognition, Word spotting, Continuous speech recognition. Audio and Electroacoustics: Active noise control, Active noise reduction, Echo cancellation, Psychoacoustics, Aids for the handicapped, Broadband audio coding, Signal processing for music, Binaural systems, Room acoustics.
- Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing: Image and video coding, motion estimation, Computed imaging, Geophysical and seismic processing, Image and video analysis and segmentation, Image and video filtering, restoration and enhancement, Image representation and modeling, Digital transforms, Multidimensional systems, Machine vision.
- Wireless Communications: Multi-carrier systems, Multi-antenna systems, MIMO channels and space-time coding, Multi-user detection, Link adaptation, Modulation and coding, Ultra wide band, Low-power algorithms and architectures.
- Knowledge Engineering and Signal Processing: Pattern recognition, Expert systems, Neural networks, Fuzzy systems, Signal interpretation, Multisensor Data Fusion, biometrical techniques.
- Implementations: Architectures and VLSI hardware, Programmable signal processors, Algorithms and applications mappings, Design methodology and CAD tools, Languages and real time software.
- Applications: Radar, Sonar, Communications, Biomedical processing, Geophysical signal processing, Underwater signal processing, Remote sensing, Robotics, Astronomy, Storage.
Papers in the research track will be presented in poster format, except for a small number of papers (selected by the organisers), which will be scheduled for oral presentation.
The industrial track is composed of oral sessions (in parallel to the oral sessions of the research track). In addition, companies will exhibit their newest technology developments with live demonstrations.
Prospective authors for the research track should submit a full paper (four pages) in pdf-format before or on February 4, 2005. Research papers should describe original work by the authors in sufficient technical detail.
Prospective presenters or contributors to the industrial track should submit a 200-word proposal (abstract) describing the contents of the proposed talk or demonstrator before or on February 4, 2005. Optionally, they may also submit a full paper at that time.
The abstracts and papers must be submitted on the conference website http://acivs.org/sps2005/. Full papers must comply with the guidelines for authors available on that website.

The conference will take place in Het Provinciehuis, Antwerp, Belgium on April 19-20, 2005. Het Provinciehuis is located in the Koningin Elisabethlei 22, Antwerp, Belgium. The center can be easily reached by public transport (tram lines 2 and 15).
If you travel by car, we suggest that you park your car in one of the following areas:
- Desguinlei (15 min. on foot)
- Central station district
- Cultural center "de Singel"
Accepted papers will be published in the CD-Rom conference proceedings in pdf-format. Authors may optionally include a directory containing additional multimedia content, e.g., sound files, demo's or video sequences, subject to space availability. Authors wishing to take advantage of this possibility should contact for additional instructions.
Details on the registration fees are available on the website. The registration fees include access to the technical sessions, a copy of the conference proceedings, coffee breaks, lunches and a conference dinner. The registration fee does not include lodging.
Companies wishing to exhibit a demonstrator should contact for price information.
