EE/CS Dept Head search, RFP for Special issue on Relaxation Methods in Identification and Estimation Problems

Mike Wakin sent me the following:
Dear Igor, 
After a recent reorganization at the Colorado School of Mines, our EE and CS programs have been joined into a brand new EECS department. We are now in the process of searching for our first Department Head.
More details about this search are available here:
This person will undoubtedly play an important role in shaping the future of our program.
If you happen to know anyone who would be interested in and qualified for this position, I would greatly appreciate you passing along this information. Anyone is welcome to contact me at mwakin  at   for further information.
Thanks and best regards,
Borhan Sanandaji also sent me the following:

Dear Igor,
I would like to bring your attention to the attached announcement of the special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (TAC) on "Relaxation Methods in Identification and Estimation Problems". The corresponding guest editor of this special issue, Prof. Diego Regruto asked me to advertise the special issue in the signal processing/compressive sensing community and I could not think of any other places better than your great blog, the Nuit Blanche, for doing that. Would you please post the announcement of this special issue of TAC on Nuit Blanche? More details of the special issue can be found in the attached announcement and also here  

The topics relevant to this session include (but are not limited to) the following approaches:
  • Convex relaxation techniques
  • LMI/SDP-based relaxation techniques (Sum of squares decompositions, moment-based approaches, etc.)
  • l1-minimization approaches
  • Probabilistic/randomized methods
  • Rank/nuclear norm minimization techniques
  • Compressive sensing
I really appreciate your help in advance and please let me know if you any questions.

Sure Borhan.
