Dear List,

I hope this workshop may be of interest to those of you working in
computational auditory scene analysis, or audio source separation. Best
wishes, Mark Plumbley


                     *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

                2006 ICA Research Network Workshop

The ICA Research Network is sponsored by the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the UK, and is aimed at improving
communications in the area of Blind Source Separation (BSS) and
Independent Component Analysis (ICA). The 2006 ICA Research Network
Workshop will be held at the University of Liverpool covering the latest
developments and techniques in the area of BSS/ICA.


The workshop will feature keynote addresses and technical presentations
(oral and poster), which will be included in the registration. Papers
are solicited for, but not limited to, the following areas:

* Algorithms and Architectures for BSS/ICA
  - Nonlinear ICA
  - Probabilistic Models
  - Sparse Coding
  - etc
* Theory of BSS/ICA
  - Optimization
  - Complex Methods
  - Time-Frequency Representations
  - etc
* Applications of BSS/ICA
  - Audio
  - Bio-Informatics
  - Biomedical Engineering
  - Communications
  - Finance
  - Image Processing
  - Psychology
  - Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA)
  - etc

Extended Abstract Submission Procedure

Prospective authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more
than two A4-size pages, including: 

* Title 
* Authors' details 
* the work with contexts and 
* preliminary results (a Table or a Figure)
