ICIP 2020

Bringing together 1,300 leaders in signal processing globally to exchange ideas annually.

The 27th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2020) will be held in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), on October 25-28, 2020.

ICIP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on image and video processing and computer vision. ICIP features world-class speakers, tutorials, and industry sessions, and creates an excellent forum to foster innovation and entrepreneurship, and network with the brightest minds in academia and industry that are working in this field. ICIP is the opportunity for industry executives with diverse experience and activity and researchers in distinct yet complementary areas, to discuss the development of emerging and next-generation in terms of technologies, applications, and services thanks to the workshops, panel discussions, and challenge sessions.

ICIP attracts students, professors, as well as researchers and engineers from industry. This includes many graduate students nearing the end of their study seeking new opportunities. For companies interested in recruiting students for full-time employment or internships, ICIP facilitates the exchange of information by organizing a Student Career Luncheon, where students could hear about various companies and employment opportunities, and students have the chance to network with company representatives.

ICIDS 2020

About ICIDS 2020

The International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners in game narrative and interactive storytelling, including the theoretical, technological, and applied design practices. The annual conference is an interdisciplinary gathering that combines computational narratology, narrative systems, storytelling technology, and humanities-inspired theoretical inquiry, empirical research and artistic expression.

ICIDS 2020 will be hosted by the Department of Creative Technology of Bournemouth University (Bournemouth, UK) at the Hilton Bournemouth conference facilities.

ICIDS 2020 will include invited speakers, research and practitioner presentations, art exhibits, workshops, tutorials, and a doctoral consortium. This year’s conference will be built around the central theme of “Interactive Digital Narrative Scholarship” - this builds upon a recurrent issue in recent years of the conference which has sought to define the methodologies, scholarly, and scientific basis of Interactive Digital Narrative as an academic discipline. We hope to build upon this discussion as we continue to define the discipline of interactive digital narrative scholarship, anchor the community around it, and rigorously refine the terminology, theory, and methodologies within our field.
