LDC at ICASSP 2012

LDC will be traveling across the globe to exhibit at its first IEEE-hosted event. The 37th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) will be held at the Kyoto International Conference Center in Kyoto, Japan, on March 25 - 30, 2012.

The ICASSP meeting is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications, and LDC is looking forward to interacting with members of this community. Please look for LDC’s exhibition at Booth #14 in the Annex Hall. We hope to see you there!
