The 6th International Conference on Audio, Language and Image Processing
July 16-17, 2018, Shanghai, China

General Information

As the flagship conference and the most important event in the region, the 6th International Conference on Audio, Language and Image Processing (ICALIP2018) will continue the great success of its five previous editions (ICALIP2008, ICALIP2010, ICALIP2012, ICALIP2014 and ICALIP2016) with aiming to provide a unique forum for researchers, engineers and educators interested in audio, language, image processing and artificial intelligence to learn about recent progresses, to address related challenges and to develop new methods, applications and systems. The conference, to be held on July 16-17, 2018 in Shanghai, the largest city of China, is technically sponsored by IEEE CIS Shanghai Chapter and is co-organized by IET Shanghai Local Network, Shanghai University, Tongji University, Fudan University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The conference proceedings including all the accepted papers will be eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library (Catalog No. CFP 1850D) and submitted to both EI Compendex and ISTP which have indexed all accepted papers of the previous five editions of this biannual conference series. Best Paper Awards will be granted to the authors of those outstanding papers determined by the International Program Committee of the conference.

The expanded version of the selected papers will be published respectively in the Special Issue of International Journal of Computational Intelligence Systems (SCI Index) and Special Issue of International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (EI Compendex).
