Additional Opportunities for Accepted Papers

Increase the visibility, impact, and reproducibility of your research

For ICASSP 2019 authors, free resources are available to upload content associated with your paper!

IEEE SigPort

The 2019 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) is working with the IEEE Signal Processing Society Repository (SigPort), to make conference presentations and posters available to all attendees. The authors are encouraged to upload your presentation slides and posters (in PDF format) to SigPort by May 10th, 2019. This is a society-wide initiative, aiming at providing easier access to conference presentation slides and promoting visibility of authors’ work.

  1. Go to
  2. Login using IEEE Web account credentials. If you are not an IEEE member, you can still create a web account for free.
  3. Upload your presentation slides or posters (in PDF format). Go to "Submit your work" on the top menu When you upload a document, you need to choose the event – ICASSP 2019 Using the coupon code - ICASSP19005
  4. After upload your documents, you can update/revise your document by clicking "Edit" on the document page.
  5. Your paper is already available on IEEE Xplore. You are welcomed to add a link to it (after you have searched for your paper on IEEE Xplore) as part of the information you provide. While there are a few options to do so, a simple one is to add the link after you have entered the abstract (in the box of the same name, where there is a tool to add web links when you select text format as “Full HTML”).

We estimate that this will take about 10 minutes. If this is your first time using SigPort, you are welcome to read the more detailed author information document (attachment). For any SigPort related questions, please contact us through

Please Upload your presentations or posters in PDF format to share with other conference attendees. By posting your information, it will promote visibility of your work, and easier access to conference presentation slides. Accepted authors will receive an email with instructions and a complimentary code to add content. Visit IEEE SigPort to learn more at: ICASSP-2019 - SigPort

IEEE DataPort

Upload up to 2TB of data associated with your conference paper to IEEE DataPort at no cost. Uploading your data will enhance the value of your article, support research reproducibility, and may even result in more citations for you since each dataset uploaded to IEEE DataPort is assigned a unique DOI that can be cited and referenced! To add your datasets or learn more, visit IEEE DataPort

Code Ocean

Include associated code, software simulations, algorithms, and more for article readers to understand what produced the results. Articles in the IEEE Xplore® digital library will display the associated and executable code from Code Ocean. Published code is fully citable and receives a DOI for better discoverability. To add your code or learn more, visit Code Ocean

Presentation Instruction

Lecture Presentation

Each presentation time slot is 20 minutes including lecture and discussion (questions and answers). Each presentation has its own time slot which cannot be changed or shifted. Therefore, the speakers are expected to make best use of the slot and leave sufficient time, 3-4 minutes, for question and answers. Presenters must check-in with the Session Chair prior to the session start. The presenters can upload their presentation slides in the preparation room or in the presentation room before start of the session. All presentation rooms are equipped with a computer, a data projector, a microphone, and a lectern.

Poster Presentation

There are a large number of poster presentations during this year meeting. The poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present their posters and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions.

The poster area includes poster boards of 2m wide and 1m high suitable for A0 size posters (so any poster should be smaller than this). In addition, sufficient push tacks or Velcro adhesive will be provided for mounting the posters. The presenters have time to mount their poster during the break prior to each session. They must check-in with the Session Chairs prior to the session start and remain with their posters throughout the presentation. Failing to do this may lead to marking no-show or absence of the author. Please remove your poster at the end of your allocated session. Posters left mounted to the boards after end of the session will be removed and disposed.

The new locations of the poster areas are shown in the images below :: please click on the image to enlarge!
