About CONF-SPML 2024

The 4th International Conference on Signal Processing and Machine Learning (CONF-SPML 2024) is a leading conference on signal processing and machine learning. Illinois Institute of Technology, Melbourne Institute of Technology, University of Portsmouth, and Al Ain University are co-organizers of CONF-SPML 2024. CONF-SPML 2024 is open to international participants. It provides an excellent opportunity for scholars interested in applied signal processing to share their findings and achievements, thus promoting communication and cooperation. This conference is supported by faculty members from the University of Edinburgh, University of California, Los Angeles, and University of Southern California.

To break the barriers of time and space and to provide seamless communication opportunities for worldwide scholars, CONF-SPML 2024 will be organized distributedly with dispersed venues. Transnational academic workshops are the decentralized co-organisers of CONF-SPML 2024 and will be held at Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, USA), Melbourne Institute of Technology (Melbourne, Australia), University of Portsmouth (Portsmouth, UK), and Al Ain University (Abu Dhabi, UAE). Besides these workshops, CONF-SPML 2024 is a hybrid conference, establishing an online session and welcoming participants from all countries and regions to join whenever and wherever possible.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to highlight the importance of signal processing and machine learning as well as establish new collaborations in these areas. The conference looks for significant contributions to trending technologies in signal processing and biomedical signal processing in theoretical and practical aspects.

Submission Info

Review Process

The submission will first be reviewed for its topic and length, then go through an originality check. The peer-review process will begin soon after the paper is found to be qualified. The paper will be sent to have a double-blind peer review by two reviewers. They will judge the paper based on the theme, coverage, innovation, integrity, depth, and language. If the paper is accepted, notification of acceptance and review comments will be sent to the author via email. The actual review time may be different under certain situations.
