    Aims and Scope


    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of Signal Processing Systems for Signal, Image, and Video Technology publishes research papers on the design and implementation of signal processing systems, with or without VLSI circuits. The journal is published in twelve issues and is distributed to engineers, researchers, and educators in the general field of signal processing systems.

    The key subject areas of interest to the journal are:

    System Design and Implementation

    • system design methodologies
    • SoC Designs
    • VLSI and other advanced technologies
    • system performance analysis (including measurement, modeling, and simulation) of signal processing systems


    • DSP algorithms
    • Image, video, and multimedia processing
    • pattern recognition algorithms
    • machine learning techniques


    • FPGA
    • design of arithmetic circuits and VLSI components used in signal processing (such as multipliers, dividers, and digital filter sections)
    • specialized number systems (including on-line arithmetic, residue number systems, and logarithmic number systems)
    • embedded architectures and systems
    • multi-processor architectures
    • parallel, pipelined, and array processors
    • multi-core signal processors
    • generic and programmable processors
    • special purpose signal processor architectures
    • algorithms and architecture co-design


    • acoustics/speech/image/video/multimedia
    • internet and wireless security
    • biometric recognition
    • wireless communication and sensor networks
    • genomic signal processing


    The Journal of Signal Processing Systems for Signal, Image, and Video Technology considers original, peer-reviewed content as well as high quality workshop, symposium, and conference papers with an emphasis on system design. Among other areas, the journal provides an excellent forum for special issues on applications, algorithms, and architectures of timely interest. There is no page charge for authors. 

    Authors benefit from Online FirstTM Publication – in which articles are available and citable online by their DOI (Digital Object Identifier) in advance of print publication. This ensures a fast time-to-publication for accepted papers and enables a wide electronic readership for the journal content.

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed.

Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
