International Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing (BASP) Frontiers Workshop 2013

Yves Wiaux just sent me the following announcement foe the new BASP meeting. The previous and first meeting's presentations can be found here.

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the INTERNATIONAL BIOMEDICAL AND ASTRONOMICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING (BASP) FRONTIERS WORKSHOP 2013, which will take place in a small resort of the Swiss Alps (Villars-sur-Ollon, 2 hours by train from Geneva Airport) from January 27th until February 1st, 2013:

Abstract submission for posters/demos contributions (or talk upon availability) will open on September 1st and close on October 21st 2012.

Synopsis: The BASP Frontiers workshop was created in 2011 to promote synergies between selected topics in astronomy and biomedical sciences, around common challenges for signal processing. The 2013 workshop will gather 75 participants around the themes of sparse signal sampling and reconstruction, for radio interferometry and MRI, but will also open its floor to many other interesting hot topics in theoretical, astrophysical, and biomedical signal processing.

Higgs Note: Following the recent historical discovery at CERN announced in July, we will have a renowned particle physicist (Prof. A Parker Cavendish) to make a general interest talk "Higgs within reach - our understanding of the universe is about to change" to open the workshop.

Contributions: The workshop is organized in 10 sessions comprising 3 to 5 talks, and 3 posters/demos. While the majority of the talks are by invitation, proposals for posters/demos contributions (or talk upon availability) for a given session, are open to all interested researchers. The maximum 1-page abstract to be submitted (a latex template is provided on the workshop website) will undergo a rapid review process. The presentation of the 3 *truly deluxe* posters/demos contributions selected for each session will take place just after the talks during a 45' coffee break or apero.

Practical information: All information regarding session list, confirmed participants, program, important dates, abstract submission, registration, workshop fees, extra activities etc. are available from the workshop website.

Please forward this call to any potentially interested researcher.

Looking forward to receiving your contributions

Best regards

On behalf of the SOC

Jason McEwen, co-chair 

Thanks Yves !
