1. First Submission

Authors are invited to submit 1-page summaries in PDF format through the paper submission site.
  • Summaries must be in English.
  • Summary should be within 1 page.
  • There is no style file for submitting 1-page summaries but summary should be presented as follows: Tiltle, author name(s), affiliation(s), and main body.
  • Summary can include figures and tables.
  • Summary can also include references.
  • Summaries are recommended to be composed of four paragraphs (objective, methods, results, and conclusions).
  • Before submitting 1-page summaries, authors should register your information at the workshop website.
  • Only PDF format can be submitted.
Authors will receive notification of your summary submission until January 4th, 2021. After the acceptance, authors will be required to submit the final paper (4-page maximum) for the workshop proceedings. All correspondence will be via e-mail. No hard copies will be accepted. At least one author of each paper must register for the workshop for papers to be included in the program.

2.Final Camera-Ready Submission

After the notification of acceptance, authors must submit a camera-ready paper (4-page maximum) with PDF until January 22nd, 2021, which is very strict.

Student Paper Award

The conference committee highly recommends submissions of papers by students.The Student Paper Award is founded by the conference committee.Eligible papers must satisfy the following two conditions :
  1. First author is a full-time student.
  2. First author makes an oral presentation at the conference.
From the manuscripts of camera-ready and the presentations at the conference, Technical Progarm Committee will select papers for Student Paper Award. The winners at the past NCSP are excluded from candidates for Student Paper Award. Awarded-winning papers will be strongly recommended to be published in the forthcoming special issue on NCSP in the Journal of Signal Processing.


Authors are invited to submit 1-page summaries in PDF format through the paper submission site by December 4, 2020. https://www.ncsp.jp/NCSP21


Please remind that one author of each paper must register and pay registration fee per paper by January 22, 2021. If not, that paper will be removed from the proceedings. https://ncsp.jp/registration/
