NEWS: Full schedule moved to virtual format

- All paper presentations included in Virtual Asilomar 2021 –

Virtually join us, connect with others, and present your work live via Gather.Town .

Thank you for planning to participate to our upcoming 2021 Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers. Our initial intent was to hold a hybrid event in which some of the presentations would be held on-site and some solely in a virtual format. Over the summer the Technical Committee designed the overall hybrid event by considering authors preferences for presentation as virtual only or virtual plus on-site. Initially 228 papers were scheduled for on-site presentations to align with the authors´ presentation preferences.

However, a recent second poll sent early September to the initially identified on-site presenters shows currently only 93 papers are still intended to be presented in an on-site event [A separate correspondence will be sent to the Point of Contacts (POCs) for these 93 papers], which highlights recent concerns about in-person attendance.

We heard your recent concerns. Based on these recent low on-site numbers, current uncertainties with respect to COVID-19, and existing travel restrictions for overseas participants, the organizing committees have reached the difficult decision to move all presentations to the virtual event, which will contain a live as well as an on-demand component to allow for maximum interaction between participations irrespective of current world events.

2020 was our conference first foray in the virtual format, and we heard your feedback. To facilitate better live interaction between participants, we have made some changes to our previous 2020 virtual format.

  • This year, in addition to on-demand pre-recorded videos, we are introducing live interaction by holding a three-day live virtual component via Gather.Town. Gather.Town creates an immersive virtual conference environment, where participants can interact with each other. Those of you who participated inICASSP2021, or plan to join ICIP 2021 will already be familiar with it. Expect further specific information on this exciting virtual environment as soon as possible as final preparations ramp up. We hope you will take advantage of the capability to meet old and new colleagues through it.
  • To facilitate live interactions, the “live interaction” part of the virtual event will be held between 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM (PDT) only during the three days of the conference.
  • The live interaction portion of the event will allow for live poster presentation, and all authors will be asked to upload a poster pdf file to support their live presentations shortly, specific instructions will be sent to authors.
  • Recorded videos of each presentation will still be available to all participants until November 30, 2021.

Registration details:

  • Online Registration will open by the end of September.
  • In order to be considered presented, each paper must be covered by a registration fee of $250.00 which will also cover the registration for one participant. Non-author participant registration cost will be $30.00.


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.
