Two Conferences: MMMA-2015, Moscow, August 2015 and CfP RSL-CV 2015, Santiago, Chile, Dec. 2015

Two meetings of interest:

Ivan just sent me the following:
Dear Igor,

we are organizing the 4-th international conference in Moscow on Matrices in Mathematics and Applications (MMMA-2015) . Low-rank approximation of matrices and tensors will be the core topic of many talks.

I think it might be interesting to the readers of your blog. It is also a good time to visit Russia, since it is not very expensive now.

With best wishes,
Ivan Oseledets 
Thanks Ivan !

Andrews also sent me the following:

Hi Igor,

I'd like to forward you this call for paper for workshop on robust subspace learning and computer vision.

Best regards,


Call for Paper for Workshop on
Robust Subspace Learning and Computer Vision (RSL-CV 2015)
Santiago, Chile, in conjunction with ICCV 2015 (

Recent research on robust subspace learning and tracking by decomposition into low-rank plus additive matrices provides a suitable framework for computer vision applications such as video coding, key frame extraction, hyper-spectral video processing, dynamic MRI, motion saliency detection and background/foreground separation. In this context, decomposition into low rank plus sparse matrices has been developed in different formulation problems such as robust principal component analysis, robust non-negative matrix factorization, robust matrix completion, subspace tracking, and low-rank minimization
The aim of RSL-CV 2015 ( are three-fold: 1) proposing robust subspace learning and tracking for computer vision applications, 2) proposing new adaptive and incremental algorithms for robust subspace learning and tracking to reach the requirements of real-time applications such as background/foreground separation, motion saliency and video coding, and 3) proposing robust algorithms to tackle key challenges in applications such as dynamic backgrounds and illumination changes for background/foreground separation.
Intention to Submit (not mandatory):           June 30, 2015 (with a tentative title to send to
Full Paper Submission Deadline:                   September 1, 2015 (for papers not submitted at ICCV)
