The 2013 6th International Congress on Image and Signal Processing (CISP 2013) and the 2013 6th International Conference on BioMedical Engineering and Informatics (BMEI 2013) will be jointly held in Hangzhou, China. CISP-BMEI 2013 is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state-of-the-art of multimedia, signal processing, biomedical engineering and informatics and to discuss future research challenges. Co-locating two conferences we aim to promote collaboration among multiple areas, especially the interactions of engineering, computing, and medicine.

CISP'13-BMEI'13 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.

As with past CISP-BMEI conferences, all papers in conference proceedings will be submitted to both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as IEEE Xplore (IEEE Conference Record Number for CISP'13: 32698, ISBN: 978-1-4799-2763-0; IEEE Conference Record Number for BMEI'13: 32697, ISBN: 978-1-4799-2760-9; All CISP-BMEI 2008-2012 papers have already been indexed by EI Compendex and included in IEEE Xplore. ). Substantially extended versions of best papers will be considered for publication in a CISP-BMEI special issue of a SCI-indexed journal.

An old Chinese saying goes, "There is heaven above, Suzhou and Hangzhou below." (Suzhou is about 100 kilometers north of Hangzhou). Famous for its scenic splendor, Hangzhou attracts more than 20 million tourists from home and abroad every year. West Lake is completely man-made in the imperial garden style. "Impressions of the West Lake" is an evening spectacle of light and dance staged outdoors at West Lake, created by award-winning director Zhang Yimou and musician Kitaro. Peak Flown in from Afar and Lingyin Temple are well-known for Buddhist carvings. Hangzhou is among the six oldest cities in China and is the southern end of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, the longest canal ever built in the world. Boating on the old Canal is one of the best ways to get a panoramic view of river towns, with ancient dwellings, traditional stone bridges, and historical relics. Explore Chinese culture at the museums of tea, silk and Chinese medicine.

Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts written in English. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. Authors should use the Latex style files or MS-Word templates provided by the conference site to format their papers. Authors should submit PDF files of their manuscripts via the online submission system. Submissions imply that the papers have not been submitted elsewhere and will not be submitted elsewhere for publications before the review decisions of this conference.
