The Eleventh IASTED International Conference on
Signal and Image Processing
~SIP 2009~
August 17 – 19, 2009
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA


The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

* Technical Committee on Image Processing
* Technical Committee on Signal Processing


This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in and applications of signal and image processing. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. SIP 2009 aims to strengthen relationships between companies, research laboratories, and universities.

All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

SIP 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (IMSA 2009)
* Identification, Control and Applications (ICA 2009)
* Computational Intelligence (CI 2009)


O'ahu, home to the major tourist centres of Honolulu and Waikiki, is a tropical destination so beautiful and unique that you may never want to leave. Isolated in the Pacific and flanked at a distance by Eastern and Western cultures, this island paradise reflects its unique history and geography through a wealth of beautiful traditions and culture. From nightly Luaus to the ancient ritual of Hula dancing, Hawaiian charm and hospitality are always on display for the millions of visitors who flock to this island every year. Local cuisine, nightlife, and shopping are all superb, but O'ahu's true beauty lies in the water, sand, and glorious sun of the island itself. With consistently warm and tropical weather, visitors can spend their days relaxing and basking in the sun at Waikiki Beach or Ala Moana. Those looking for more adventure on their holidays can participate in one of Hawaii's many exciting aquatic activities. Ocean kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, and more are available to all visitors. If you are a nature lover, you can hike to the top of the Diamond Head volcanic crater to take in breathtaking ocean views, swim with the turtles at Mokule'ia Beach, join a whale watching tour, or enjoy the coral reefs and many unique sea creatures while inside a submarine. The vibrant colours of the hibiscus will live forever in your memory. In Hawaii you will experience Aloha, "the breath of life."
