About the Conference

The 27th International Conference on Systems, Signals and Image Processing, IWSSIP 2020, Niterói, RJ, Brazil, initially scheduled for June 3 to 5 in will be held from July 1 to 3, 2020 to accommodate both in person as well as online presentations due to restrictions on travel and mobility related to the new coronavirus (COVID-19).

Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of attendees is paramount. For this reason, the conference will be held in the Buildings of the Computer Institute - IC, inside the campus of the Federal Fluminense University – UFF following the recommendations of maximum persons per each room and all other health orientations of the Niterói city and Brazilian Federal government. The Auditorium, video conference rooms, laboratories, internet access, and computer facilities of the IC/UFF will be available to attendees that can and desire be there during the event. Remote attendance and presentations by the internet are also an available options in case of traveling restriction due to coronavirus.

It is essential to highlight that if the Brazilian government imposes more restrictive health orientations in the following weeks, organizers will have to transform the in-person component of IWSSIP 2020 into an all-digital conference experience.

IWSSIP is an international conference that brings together researchers and developers from both academia and industry reporting the latest scientific and theoretical advances to discuss and debate major issues and state-of-the-art aspects on systems, signals and image processing. The IWSSIP in Niteroi, this year, will follow the success of previous occurrences in Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Chalkida, Dubrovnik, London, Manchester, Maribor, Osijek, Poznan, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Sarajevo, Vienna, and Zagreb.

The program will include invited lectures, tutorials, video or online presentations of peer-reviewed accepted papers of the conference or the Smart Cities special session.
