CfP: LVA/ICA 2018 14th International Conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation July 2-6, 2018, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

Mark just sent me the following:

Dear Igor,
The forthcoming LVA/ICA 2018 international conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation may be of interest to many Nuit Blanche readers, particularly those working on sparse coding or dictionary learning for source separation. The submission deadline is approaching! Please see below for the latest Call for Papers.
Best wishes, Mark
Here it is:

14th International Conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation
July 2-6, 2018
University of Surrey, Guildford, UK
Paper submission deadline: January 15, 2018

The International Conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation, LVA/ICA 2018, is an interdisciplinary forum where researchers and practitioners can experience a broad range of exciting theories and applications involving signal processing, applied statistics, machine learning, linear and multilinear algebra, numerical analysis and optimization, and other areas targeting Latent Variable Analysis problems.
We are pleased to invite you to submit research papers to the 14th LVA/ICA which will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, from the 2nd to the 6th of July, 2018. The conference is organized by the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP); and the Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR).
The proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers (8-10 pages in LNCS format) in areas related to latent variable analysis, independent component analysis and signal separation, including but not limited to:
- Theory:
* sparse coding, dictionary learning
* statistical and probabilistic modeling
* detection, estimation and performance criteria and bounds
* causality measures
* learning theory
* convex/nonconvex optimization tools
* sketching and censoring for large scale data
- Models:
* general linear or nonlinear models of signals and data
* discrete, continuous, flat, or hierarchical models
* multilinear models
* time-varying, instantaneous, convolutive, noiseless, noisy,
over-complete, or under-complete mixtures
* Low-rank models, graph models, online models
- Algorithms:
* estimation, separation, identification, detection, blind and
semi-blind methods, non-negative matrix factorization, tensor
decomposition, adaptive and recursive estimation
* feature selection
