Dear List, The submission deadline for this workshop (esp for those of you working in e.g. audio signal separation or auditory scene analysis) has been extended to 4 July. Best wishes, Mark Plumbley ------------------------------------------------------------------- Call for Papers *** DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 4 July 2008 *** 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. Topics 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 than four A4-size pages in the PDF format.
