CfP: SPARS 2017, Lisbon, Portugal, June 5-8, 2017, Submission deadline (EXTENDED): January 3, 2017 **

Mark just sent me the following:
Dear Igor, 
Readers of Nuit Blanche may like to know that, following several requests, the SPARS 2017 deadline has been extended over the holiday period to  ** Tuesday 3 January 2017 **.  (The new deadline is strict: no further extension will be possible.)
As regular readers of your blog will know, the last few weeks have been a busy time for many people. We would like to propose that finishing off and submitting a one-page abstract for SPARS 2017 (plus one additional page for figures and references), and looking forward to presenting in Lisbon, Portugal in June 2017, will be an ideal way to relax over the holiday period, before the New Year begins in earnest! 
Best wishes, Mark


 SPARS 2017

  Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations

  Lisbon, Portugal - June 5-8, 2017

  ** Submission deadline (EXTENDED): January 3, 2017 **



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


 * 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


SPARS 2017 will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the
engineering school of the University of Lisbon, Portugal.


** Submission deadline (EXTENDED): January 3, 2017 **

* Notification of acceptance: March 27, 2017
* Summer School: May 31-June 2, 2017 (tbc)
* Workshop: June 5-8, 2017
