Call for Sponsorship

The first IEEE China Summit & International Conference on Signal and Information Processing (ChinaSIP 2013) will be held during 6-10 July 2013 at the China National Convention Center (CNCC) in Beijing, China. ChinaSIP is an annual summit and international conference rotating in cities of China for domestic and international scientists, researchers, and developers to report and discuss their latest progress in all theoretical and technological aspects of Signal and Information Processing (SIP).

On behalf of the IEEE SPS Society, we would like to invite you to consider becoming an official supporter of the inaugural ChinaSIP 2013 conference. By supporting ChinaSIP, your organization will be highly visible and demonstrate its stature in the exciting field of SIP to a broad audience of researchers, educators, and practitioners from industry, government, and academia both within and beyond China. The participation and support from your organization will significantly enhance the quality of the event, and in turn benefit your organization through raising broad awareness of your technical contributions (products or R&D work) and attracting talents from domestic and global SIP communities. A variety of support opportunities for ChinaSIP are outlined below.
