This was the sixth in the sequence of the international conferences promoted and organized by the European Association for Signal Processing. The conference has established itself as one of the world's largest and most important meetings on the subject.
The 444 papers (in three volumes) are organized under 7 themes, containing the following topics:1. Theory of Signals and Systems:a) Detection, b) Estimation, c) Filtering, d)Spectral estimation, e) Adaptive systems, f) Modeling, g) Digital transforms, h) Digital filtering.2. Image Processing and Multidimensional Signal Processing:a) Coding, b) Enhancement, c) Restoration, d) Medical image processing.3. Speech Processing:a) Coding, b) Synthesis, c) Recognition and understanding, d) Enhancement.4. Implementations:a) Hardware, b) Software, c) VLSI, d) Novel Architectures, e) Array processing.5. Knowledge Engineering and Signal Processing:a) Expert systems, b) Pattern recognition, c) Signal interpretation, d) Image understanding.6. Neural Networks for Signal Processing:a) Theory, b) Speech, c) Vision, d) Implementations. 7. Applications:a) Radar, b) Sonar, c) Communications, d) Geophysics, e) Digital audio, f) Biomedics, g) Sensing, h) Robotics, i) Astrophysics, j) Mechanics, k) other.
The diversity of topics in this 3-volume set, as well as the extraordinary tempo at which Signal Processing has progressed, attest to the permanent vitality of this area of research and development. Workers in signal processing will find in these papers the latest advances and results, as well as indications on future research and analysis in this rapidly developing field.
