ICA 2007 - Deadline Extended to 30 March 2007

Dear List,

Following a number of requests, the deadline for ICA 2007 has been extended 
by a few days, to 30 March 2007 (see updated Call for Papers below).

Best wishes, Mark Plumbley (General Chair, ICA 2007)

       *** Extended Submission Deadline: 30 March 2007 ***          

                             ICA 2007

                  7th International Conference on
                   Independent Component Analysis
                      and Signal Separation

                            London, UK

                       9-12 September 2007


The 7th International Conference on Independent Component Analysis and 
Signal Separation (ICA 2007) will be held at Queen Mary, University of 
London, from Sunday 9 September to Wednesday 12 September 2007. 

Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation is one of the most 
exciting current areas of research in statistical signal processing and
unsupervised machine learning. Following the previous ICA conferences in 
Aussois (France), Helsinki (Finland), San Diego (CA, USA), Nara (Japan), 
Granada (Spain) and Charleston (SC, USA), this year the conference is 
organized and sponsored by the ICA Research Network, an EPSRC-funded 
network of researchers in over 25 UK institutions.

The Conference will include invited talks as well as oral and poster 
presentations of refereed papers and special sessions. It will be 
organized in a single track and will be selective.

Papers are solicited in all areas of independent component analysis and 
signal separation, including blind source separation (BSS), as well 
as semi-blind, non-blind, and model-based signal separation. Topics of 
interest include (but not limited to) the following:

* Algorithms and Architectures: non-linear ICA, probabilistic models, 
  sparse coding, linear & nonlinear models, convolutive & noisy models; 

* Theory: optimization, complex methods, time-frequency representations; 

* Applications: audio, bio-informatics, biomedical engineering, 
  communications, finance, text, image processing, psychology;

* Emerging Technologies: analogue and digital VLSI implementations, 

* Functional Neuroimaging: EEG, ERP, MEG, fMRI, applications in 

* Speech and Musical Audio: source separation, denoising, 
  dereverberation, temporal models, computational auditory scene 
  analysis (CASA), beamforming;

* Visual and Sensory Processing: image processing and coding, image 

All contributions must be original, and must not have been previously 
published, nor be under review for presentation elsewhere. Detailed 
instructions for submission to ICA 2007, including formatting 
instructions and templates, will be available from the conference 
website at http://www.ica2007.org

Paper submission deadline (EXTENDED): 30 March 2007
