Rapid developments in the analog and digital processing of signals for communication, control, and computer systems have made the theory of electrical circuits and signal processing a burgeoning area of research and design. The aim of Circuits, Systems, and Signal Processing (CSSP) is to help meet the needs of outlets for significant research papers and state-of-the-art review articles in the area.

The scope of the journal is broad, ranging from mathematical foundations to practical engineering design. It encompasses, but is not limited to, such topics as linear and nonlinear networks, distributed circuits and systems, multi-dimensional signals and systems, analog filters and signal processing, digital filters and signal processing, statistical signal processing, multimedia, computer aided design, graph theory, neural systems, communication circuits and systems, and VLSI signal processing.

The Editorial Board is international, and papers are welcome from throughout the world. The journal is devoted primarily to research papers, but survey, expository, and tutorial papers are also published.

Circuits, Systems, and Signal Processing (CSSP) is published twelve times annually

  • Call for Papers: Low power architectures for digital video and image compression

    Digital video compression is one of the key issues in video coding, enabling efficient interchange and distribution of visual information. Significant examples of such applications are portable devices, home theatre products, etc. New applications in the field of digital television broadcasting require highly efficient robust and flexible digital video compression and encoding techniques. ...
