LVA/ICA 2010: Registration open + Call for Late-breaking / demo submissions

[Apologies for cross-postings]

Dear colleagues,

Registrations are now open for the LVA/ICA conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation (http://lva2010.inria.fr/). LVA will held on September 27-30 in the Palais du Grand Large, in the ancient city of Saint-Malo, a picturesque sea resort located in Brittany, in the north-west of France.

Among other topics, this conference features more than 20 papers on music and audio source separation.

Note that the IEEE MMSP conference on Multimedia Signal Processing will be held at the same place on October 4-6, 2010, just a few days after the LVA/ICA conference. This offers a good opportunity to visit Brittany and its beautiful natural landscape and architectural heritage between the two conferences!

LVA will also feature a special Late-breaking / demo session for which submissions are open until July 31st, 2010.

In addition to contributed presentations by leading researchers in the field of signal separation, latent variable analysis, sparse component analysis, compressed sensing, independent component analysis, including audio and biomedical applications, LVA will feature o a panel discussion on The future of latent variable analysis and signal separation P. Smaragdis (USA), T. Bell (USA), Andrzej Cichocki (Japan), Michel Fliess (France), Christian Jutten (France) o a community-based SIgnal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2010) and a panel discussion on Evaluation of Signal Separation and Remaining Challenges
S. Araki (Japan), F. Theis (Germany), G. Nolte (Germany)
 o plenary lectures by

LVA will also feature a late-breaking demo session which will be dedicated to the presentation of:
 o Early results and ideas that are not yet fully formalized and evaluated
o Software and data of interest to the community, with focus on open source resources o Signal separation systems evaluated in SiSEC 2010 but not associated with a full paper Submissions to the late-breaking/demo session are welcome in the form of a non-reviewed abstract, which will be included in the conference program on a first come first served basis, but not published in the proceedings. The deadline for late-breaking/demo/SiSEC abstract submission is July 31st, 2010. This abstract is to be sent to the Program Chairs at lvaica2010 at gmail . com

Saint Malo (http://www.saint-malo-tourisme.com/index.jsp?lang=en), the corsair city, is an ancient city and pitoresque sea resort located in Brittany, in the north-west of France. Chateaubriand, Surcouf, Jacques Cartier... from writers to privateers and sailors, many were the good men who hailed from Saint-Malo. As if in honour of their pride and independence, the forts and ramparts of the corsair city face the sea, adding to the city's charm and its exceptional setting. To visitors and event-goers, the city offers the beauty of its maritime views and the wealth of its historical heritage. A city of 52,000 inhabitants that is lively all year round, Saint-Malo's heart beats to the rhythm of the major event it hosts, festivals as the Etonnants Voyageurs or Internationally renowned regattas such as the Route du Rhum.
