Call for Industrial Sponsors

The Organizing Committee for the 2017 IEEE Visual Communications and Image Processing Conference (VCIP 2017) cordially invites you to participate as a sponsor at the conference to be held in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA from December 10-13, 2017. You will have the unique opportunity to promote your company and market your brand to influential stakeholders in the visual communications and image processing community.

VCIP is sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and is recognized as the premier forum in SPIE under the auspices of IEEE for the exchange of research results as well as technology advances in the fields of visual communication and image processing since 1986. It has served the worldwide community as a venue for scientists and engineers to advance research and technology in the increasingly important field of visual processing communication, reaching further into related areas.

The main theme of VCIP 2017 is new media, including virtual reality (VR), point cloud capture and communication, and new visual processing tools including deep learning for visual information pre and post processing, including deblurring, super resolution, and post capture image enhancement. The conference includes a comprehensive technical program, tutorials, special sessions and demonstration sessions.

Sponsor participation at VCIP 2017 will give your organization a unique opportunity to increase visibility, promote your brand and showcase the latest advances of your research to an interested, highly qualified and international audience from a wide range of backgrounds, expertise and influence.

VCIP 2017 welcomes all forms of support from industry and research institutions. It offers a variety of options for sponsor participation, which include different levels of sponsorship, contribution to awards and events, as well as other options tailored to the sponsor’s specific interests. The sponsorship program includes benefits such as printing the company’s logo on the webpage, conference handbook and proceedings, and the opportunity to distribute brochures and/or other materials to delegates.

We look forward to welcoming you to St. Petersburg in December 2017, and encourage you to explore the benefits of participating as a sponsor and secure your preferred options.
