Call for Papers


Technical Program – The SAM Workshop is an important IEEE Signal Processing Society event dedicated to sensor array and multichannel signal processing. The organizing committee invites the international community to contribute with state-of-the-art developments in the field. SAM 2018 will feature plenary talks by leading researchers in the field as well as poster and oral sessions with presentations by the participants.

Research Areas – Authors are invited to submit contributions in the following areas:

  • Adaptive beamforming
  • Array processing for biomedical applications
  • Array processing for communications
  • Big data
  • Blind source separation and channel identification
  • Computational and optimization techniques
  • Compressive sensing and sparsity-based signal processing
  • Detection and estimation
  • Direction-of-arrival estimation
  • Distributed and adaptive signal processing
  • Intelligent systems and knowledge-based signal processing
  • Microphone and loudspeaker array applications
  • MIMO radar
  • Multi-antenna systems: multiuser MIMO, massive MIMO and space-time coding
  • Multi-channel imaging and hyperspectral processing
  • Multi-sensor processing for smart grid and energy
  • Non-Gaussian, nonlinear, and non-stationary models
  • Optimization techniques
  • Performance evaluations with experimental data
  • Radar and sonar array processing
  • Sensor networks
  • Source Localization, classification and tracking
  • Synthetic aperture techniques
  • Space-time adaptive processing
  • Statistical modelling for sensor arrays
  • Tensor signal processing
  • Waveform diverse sensors and systems

Submission of Papers Full-length papers with 4 pages of content and 1 extra page only for references should be electronically submitted.

Submission of Signal Processing Letters Papers – Authors of IEEE Signal Processing Letters (SPL) papers will be given the opportunity to present their work at SAM 2018, subject to space availability and approval by the Technical Program Chairs. SPL papers published between 1st June, 2017 and 31st May, 2018 are eligible for presentation at SAM 2018. Requests for presentation of SPL papers should be made by emailing the Technical Program Chairs as early as possible and the latest by 31st May, 2018. However, to take advantage of the advance registration rate (20 May 2018), please send your request by 30 April 2018. Decision will be made within two weeks of receiving the request. Approved requests for presentation must have one author/presenter registered for SAM 2018.
