The 22nd IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP 2012)

September 23-26, 2012

Santander, Spain

Call for Papers

The 22nd MLSP workshop in the series organized by the Signal Processing Society MLSP Technical Committee will present the most recent and exciting advances in data analysis for signal processing problems through tutorials, keynote talks, as well as special and regular singletrack sessions. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers on relevant algorithms and applications including, but not limited to:

  • Learning theory and techniques
  • Graphical models and kernel methods
  • Data-driven adaptive systems and models
  • Pattern recognition and classification
  • Distributed, Bayesian, subspace/manifold, and sparsity-aware learning
  • Multiset data analysis and multimodal data fusion
  • Perceptual signal processing in audio, image and video
  • Cognitive information processing
  • Applications, including:
    • Speech, audio and video
    • Music processing
    • Biomedical imaging
    • Communications
    • Bioinformatics
    • Computational genomics
    • Social networks
    • Biometrics
    • Energy and smart grid

Paper Submission Procedure

Authors are invited to submit a double column paper of up to six pages using the electronic submission procedure described on the paper submission page. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Press; electronic proceedings will be distributed at the Workshop and included in IEEE Xplore.

Best Student Paper Award

The MLSP Best Student Paper Award will be granted to the best overall paper for which a student is the principal author and presenter. This author must be a registered student at the time of paper submission to be eligible for this award. The award will be presented during the conference and consists of a 600 euros honorarium (to be divided equally between all student authors of the paper), and a plaque for each such author. The award will be selected by a subcommittee of the program committee. The selection is based on the quality, originality, and clarity of the submission. The award is supported by the “Asociación Española de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación. Delegación de Cantabria”.

Special Issue

Selected papers from MLSP 2012 will be considered for a special issue of The International Journal of Neural Systems (JCR IF 4.2).
