Best wishes,

Mark

Here is the announcement:

SPARS 2017

Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations

Lisbon, Portugal - June 5-8, 2017

Submission deadline: December 12, 2016

------------------------------------------

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations (SPARS) workshop aims to bring together people from statistics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, fostering the exchange and dissemination of new ideas and results, both applied and theoretical, on the general area of sparsity-related techniques and computational methods, for high dimensional data analysis, signal processing, and related applications.

Contributions (talks and demos) are solicited as one-page abstracts, which may extend to a second page in order to include figures, tables and references. Talks should present recent and novel research results. We welcome abstract submissions for technological demonstrations of the mathematical topics within our scope.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Sparse coding and representations, and dictionary learning

* Sparse and low-rank approximation algorithms

* Compressive sensing and learning

* Dimensionality reduction and feature extraction

* Sparsity in approximation theory, information theory, and statistics

* Low-complexity/low-dimensional regularization

* Statistical/Bayesian models and algorithms for sparsity

* Sparse network theory and analysis

* Sparsity and low-rank regularization

* Applications including but not limited to: communications,

geophysics, neuroscience, audio & music, imaging, denoising, genetics.

PLENARY SPEAKERS:

* Yoram Bresler, University of Illinois, USA

* Volkan Cevher, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland

* Jalal Fadili, École Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Caen, France

* Anders Hansen, University of Cambridge, UK

* Gitta Kutyniok, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany

* Philip Schniter, Ohio State University, USA

* Eero Simoncelli, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, NYU, USA

* Rebecca Willett, University of Wisconsin, USA

VENUE:

SPARS 2017 will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the

engineering school of the University of Lisbon, Portugal.
