Call for Papers

The 9th International Symposium on Signal, Image, Video and Communications ISIVC 2018 will be held in the Faculty of Sciences, Rabat, Morocco, on November 27-30, 2018.

ISIVC is a high-level international forum and an important event for researchers, engineers and scientists from around the world to present and discuss recent advances, technologies and applications in the fields of Signal, Image, Video Processing and Communications.  This year a particular attention will be paid to a novel track focused on Data Science and applications. The symposium will feature world-class speakers, plenary, regular, poster and special sessions as well as business and industrial exhibits.

On the occasion of the first death anniversary of the late Professor Driss Aboutajdine, this edition will be specially dedicated  to his memory  under the sign of fidelity and recognition.
