ICA Research Network International Workshop

  25-26 September, 2008, Liverpool, U.K.


The ICA Research Network is sponsored by the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the U.K., and is aimed at improving
communications in the area of Blind Source Separation (BSS) and
Independent Component Analysis (ICA). The 2008 ICA Research Network
Workshop will be held at the University of Liverpool covering the latest
developments and techniques in the area of source separation and ICA.
Submissions from international participants are most welcome.


The workshop will feature keynote addresses and technical presentations
(oral and poster), which will be included in the registration. Papers
are solicited on topics in the area of source separation or ICA,
including but not limited to: Algorithms and Architectures (Non-linear
ICA, Probabilistic Models, Sparse Coding, etc), Theory (Optimization,
Complex Methods, Time-Frequency Representations, etc), Applications
(Audio, Bio-Informatics, Biomedical Engineering, Communications,
Finance, Image Processing, Psychology, etc), and novel methods
(compressed sensing, non-negative matrix factorization).

A special feature of this workshop will be a special poster session
where authors will have the opportunity to present their current work in
progress. Authors should indicate their preference at the submission
stage and submit short papers. 

Full Paper Submission Procedure

Prospective authors are invited to submit camera-ready papers of no more
