Most of the data collected and stored today is of audio and video type. Indexing and retrieval of this data poses several signal processing challenges. Progress in processing image and speech data will have tremendous impact on the applications of information technology. It is in this context that the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, and the Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) jointly organized the first WISP at IIT Madras in 2006. The previous WISP workshops, conducted from the years 2007 to 2015, were organized by the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad, the IIT Guwahati, IIT Hyderabad and the C. R. Rao Advanced Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science (AIMSCS), Hyderabad. WISP-2016 is being organized jointly by IIIT Hyderabad and BITS Hyderabad on 24th December 2016. The objective of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for students, faculty, scientists and engineers to interact with leading researchers in communication, speech, music, biometrics, phonetics, image and signal processing areas. The workshop includes invited talks from experts in these and related areas from India and abroad. Researchers in academic, government and industrial organizations are encouraged to participate in the workshop. Early registration is recommended due to limit on the number of participants.
