COVID-19 Update

We were looking forward to welcoming everyone in our usual spot on the California Central Coast. However this year’ Asilomar Signals, Systems & Computers meeting was moved to a full virtual format due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and resulting travel restrictions. We are excited to be able to provide a virtual venue for the 2020 meeting and hope you will be able to join us (virtually) and learn about recent technical findings discussed during what is the 54th yearly installment of the conference.

Virtual Format

  • Presentation materials will be made available to conference attendees (i.e. those registered for the conference) for a month starting on November 2nd, 2020.
  • Presentation materials will only be viewable, not downloadable, and presentation materials will not be archived after the virtual conference portal closes on December 2nd.

How will the virtual conference format be handled?

  • The conference will have ‘live’ and ‘on-demand’ components. Live components will follow US Pacific Standard Time.
  • The ‘live’ components consist of the Student Paper Competition Session (Monday Nov. 2, 8:00am), the Sydney Parker Memorial Lecture (Tuesday Nov. 3, 8:00am), and the Keynote Presentation (Wednesday Nov. 4, 8:00am). These sessions will be streamed live via Zoom and will include live Q&A sessions.
  • The ‘On-Demand’ components consist of regular oral sessions, which will be rolled out at the beginning of the day they are scheduled as per the advertised program (Nov. 2nd through Nov. 5th). Each paper will be presented via a 15-minute video available to all attendees, and a Q&A forum for each paper will be available in the conference virtual portal. Authors are asked to answer questions online before the end of the conference.
  • Beyond the rollout period (Nov. 2nd through Nov. 5th), attendees will have access to presenter’s recordings and Q&A forums until December 2.

Conference Registration

  • You will need to register to the technical conference venue in order to have access to the virtual platform used for the conference and participate in the event. The registration site is now open at
  • Attendees have the option to either pay for access to the virtual platform or to pay a paper registration fee (which also provides the author covering the paper fee to full access of the virtual event). Thus, at least one author on each paper must cover the paper registration fee. The paper registration fee provides that author access to the virtual event, ensures that the paper presentation is included in the virtual event, and ensures that the final version of the paper is included in the conference proceedings.

The Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers is a yearly Conference held on the Asilomar Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA, USA. The IEEE Signal Processing Society is a technical co-sponsor. It provides a forum for presenting recent and novel work in various areas of theoretical and applied signal processing.

General areas of interest to the forum include:

  • Architecture and Implementation
  • Array Signal Processing
  • Biomedical Signal & Image Processing
  • Communication Systems
  • MIMO Communications & Signal Processing
  • Networks
  • Signal Processing & Adaptive Systems
  • Speech, Image & Video Processing

Recent meetings have presented a wide array of work ranging from results in blind source separation, random networks, MIMO communications, low dimensional signal models to applications of signal processing in control, wireless communications, financial engineering, smart grids, biological systems, medical imaging, and big data.
