The IEEE Signal Processing Society, the IEEE Synthetic Aperture Standards Committee, and the IEEE Synthetic Aperture Technical Working Group enthusiastically invite you to the scenic campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado to a unique gathering of researchers and engineers engaged in cutting-edge research on computational imaging and sensing using synthetic apertures. CISA will highlight advances in the theoretical development, engineering practice, and standardization of all aspects of SA imaging and sensing including Radar, Sonar, Optics, 5G-MIMO, Seismology, MRI, Radiometry, Integrated sensing and communications, and Radio astronomy.



  • Initial submission: The minimum initial submission to CISA 2024 due February 29, 2024, is a 2-page summary with sufficient details/results to permit careful reviewing
  • The minimum initial 2-page summary for the Climate Change Standards Initiative (CCSI) workshops will be due March 29, 2024
  • Camera-ready paper: Papers accepted to CISA will be required to submit a camera-ready version due April 19, 2024, with a 4-page limit plus an additional page dedicated only to references.
    Authors are strongly encouraged (but are not required) to submit the complete 4+1-page paper in the initial call.


  • CISA 2024 templates in MS Word and LaTeX are available for download above.
  • Same template should be used for both the initial summary (minimum 2 pages) and camera-ready paper submissions (4+1 pages) except for following the relevant page limits. The abstracts in both versions should be 100-150 words.
  • Appropriate copyright notices must be used based on the authors’ employment.


  • All the initial submissions will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee.
  • Authors will be notified of acceptance of their initial submissions, the presentation format (oral or poster) and the session information by March 15, 2024.
  • Authors have until April 19, 2024, to upload their final camera-ready document.
  • The camera-ready document will be included in the Technical Program and arranged into relevant sessions.


The initial 2-page summary will create your first impression on the Technical Program Committee. As such, it is recommended that the submission is succinct while conveying the significant contributions of your work. The submission should include the main points, methods, results, and conclusions to assist the Technical Program Committee in making their decision in your favor. The camera-ready papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for publication and, therefore, should be of high quality. The submissions will also be checked for plagiarism.
