ICASSP-2024 Workshop on Computational Imaging using Synthetic Apertures; 14-19 April 2024

The ICASSP-2024 workshop on “Computational Imaging Using Synthetic Apertures” in Seoul, Korea invites submissions describing advances in sensing and imaging. The term synthetic aperture (SA) refers generically to a collecton of spatally diverse, phase coherent or phaseless, signal samples taken before an algorithm is applied to extract informaton or create an image. The samples may be measured in the signal domain from a propagating wavefield (channel sounding) or target backscatter (radar, sonar). An SA may also sample in the k-space domain via different look angles around an object or scene, as in X-ray tomography, spotlight SAR or Fourier ptychography. Further, an SA can be a sparse collection of spatially distributed signal samples that yield the sensing performance of a filled aperture after processing steps are applied (radiometry).

Additionally, papers that describe the use of SAs to send information are of interest to the workshop. In this case, the elements of the SA are spatially separated, phase coherent, signal sources. Examples include multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antennas in 5G, wireless power transfer, distributed radars or sensors, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarms, and 6G communications using intelligent reflecting surfaces. In these applications, a user combines the energy received from all emitters to yield an enhanced output, such as higher data throughput rate or higher SNR.

Workshop Paper Submission Deadline — Thursday, 30 November 2023

Submitted workshop papers should abide by the ICASSP-2024 paper style, format and length (4+1 pages).

Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore only if an author presents the paper in-person at the workshop.
