On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the EURASIP leadership, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to EUSIPCO 2019 which will be held at the A Coruña Conference Center, PALEXCO, from September 2nd to 6th, 2019.
EUSIPCO 2019 offers an attractive technical program with more than 500 papers being presented in 78 lecture and poster sessions, of which 10 are special sessions. The program includes four plenary talks given by internationally renowned speakers, 10 tutorials presented by prominent experts, and two Satellite Workshops. In order to encourage student participation, the future of our scientific community, the program includes the final rounds of two student-oriented competitions, the Student Paper Competition and the Three-Minute Thesis Contest.
We would like to thank all the authors who have submitted articles for presentation at EUSIPCO 2019. There were 820 submissions which required a huge amount of revision work distributed between Area Chairs and reviewers, wisely led by our Technical Program co-chairs, Sabrina Greco and Marius Pesavento. To all of them, thank you for your extraordinary effort.
In addition to the technical activities, EUSIPCO 2019 offers an exciting program of social events with a welcome reception at PALEXCO; a visit to the Aquarium Finisterrae, a scientific museum dedicated to marine science; and a banquet at the Pazo de Vilaboa, a noble and beautiful nineteenth century building perfect to taste the traditional Galician cuisine.
