Call for papers: LVA/ICA 2010, September 27-30, 2010, Saint-Malo, France

Dear all,

If you are working on CASA or if you are interested in ICA, tensor decompositions or related models of neural information processing, then the following announcement is definitely relevant to you.


                      LVA/ICA 2010
         September 27-30, 2010 - Saint-Malo, France
             9th International Conference on
       Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation

          formerly the International Conference on
    Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation



Ten years after the first ICA workshop in Aussois, the series of ICA
conferences has shown the liveliness of the community of theoreticians
and practitioners working in this field. While ICA and blind signal
separation have become mainstream topics, new approaches have emerged to
solve problems involving signal mixtures or various other types of
latent variables: semi-blind models, matrix factorization using SCA,
NMF, PLSI, but also tensor decompositions, IVA, ISA, ...

The 9th edition of the conference, renamed LVA/ICA to reflect this
evolution towards more general Latent Variable Analysis problems in
signal processing, will offer an interdisciplinary forum for scientists
and engineers to experience renewed theoretical surprises and face
real-world problems.

In addition to contributed papers (oral and poster presentations), the
meeting will feature keynote talks by leading researchers:

	Pierre Comon, University of Nice, France
	Stephane Mallat, Ecole Polytechnique, France
	Mark Girolami, University of Glasgow, UK
	Arie Yeredor, Tel-Aviv University, Israel

as well as a community-based evaluation campaign (SiSEC 2010), a panel
discussion session, and a special late-breaking / demo session.



• April 8, 2010: Paper submission deadline
• June 15, 2010: Notification of acceptance
• June 30, 2010: Final paper due
• July 31, 2010: Late-breaking / demo / SiSEC abstract submission deadline

Detailed submission instructions will be available on the conference
website http://lva2010.inria.fr/.



Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in all areas of latent
variable analysis and signal separation, including but not limited to:
• Theoretical frameworks: probabilistic, geometric &
biologically-inspired modeling; flat, hierarchical & dynamic structures;
sparse coding; kernel methods; neural networks
• Models: linear & nonlinear models; continuous & discrete latent
variables; convolutive & noisy mixtures; linear & quadratic
time-frequency representations
• Algorithms: blind & semi-blind estimation; identification &
convergence conditions; local & evolutionary optimization; computational
complexity; adaptation & modularity
• Speech and audio data: source separation; denoising & dereverberation;
• Images: segmentation; fusion; texture analysis; color imaging; coding;
scene analysis
• Biomedical data: functional imaging; BCI; genomic data analysis;
systems biology
• Unsolved and emerging problems: causality detection; feature
selection; data mining; control; psychology; social networks; finance;
artificial intelligence; real-time applications
• Resources: software; databases; objective & subjective evaluation

Papers must be original and must not be already published nor under
review elsewhere. Papers linked to a submission to SiSEC 2010 are highly
welcome. The proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag’s Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.



Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for a special
issue of a journal.

The Best Student Paper Award will distinguish the work of a PhD student
with original scientific contributions and the quality of his/her
presentation at LVA/ICA 2010. Eligible papers must be first-authored and
presented by the PhD student during the Conference. Candidates will be
asked to notify their participation on the submission form. A prize of
400 € offered by the Fondation Metivier will be awarded to the winner.



A special session will be dedicated to the presentation of:
• early results and ideas that are not yet fully formalized and evaluated
• software and data of interest to the community, with focus on open
source resources
• signal separation systems evaluated in SiSEC 2010 but not associated
with a full paper

Presenters are invited to submit a non-reviewed abstract, which will be
included in the conference program but not published in the proceedings.

We look forward to receiving your technical contribution and meeting you
in Saint-Malo!
