The Fifth International Conference on Image and Signal Processing (ICISP 2012) brought together about 60 researchers from more than 17 countries in the beautiful city of Agadir, Morocco. Historically, ICISP is a conference resulting from the actions of researchers from Morocco, France, and Canada. The first and second editions of ICISP were held in Agadir, Morocco in 2001 and 2003. The third edition was held in Cherbourg-Octeville, in Normandy, France, in 2008. The fourth edition was held in Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada, in 2010. ICISP 2012 was sponsored by EURASIP (European Association for Image and Signal Processing) and the IAPR (International Association for Pattern Recognition).

The Program Committee members carried out the review process. Each paper was reviewed by at-least two reviewers, and also checked by the conference co-chairs. From 156 full papers submitted, 69 were finally accepted (54 oral presentations, and 15 posters) giving an acceptance rate of 44.2%. We took pride in arranging a one-track conference and could not accept more contributions.

The conference program included three keynote talks by world renowned experts. The first keynote was given by Matti Pietikäinen, director of Infotech Oulu Research Center, Finland. The second keynote was given by Denis Laurendeau, President of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), director of the REPARTI Research Center and head of the Computer Vision and Systems Laboratory at Laval University, Quebec, Canada. The third keynote was given by Saad Biaz, Shelby Center of Engineering Technology, Auburn University, USA.

The Conference banquet took place in the Chems Ayour Complex (with folk animation, Fantasia, Acrobats, and Oriental dancers).
