The 26th IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP 2016)

September 13-16, 2016

Vietri sul Mare, Salerno, Italy

Call for Papers

The 26th MLSP workshop in the series of workshops organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society MLSP Technical Committee will present the most recent and exciting advances in machine learning for signal processing through keynote talks, tutorials, as well as special and regular single-track sessions. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers on relevant algorithms and applications including, but not limited to:

  • Bayesian learning and signal processing
  • Cognitive information processing
  • Deep learning techniques
  • Dictionary learning
  • Graphical and kernel methods
  • Independent component analysis
  • Information-theoretic learning
  • Learning theory and algorithms
  • Pattern recognition and classification
  • Bounds on performance
  • Subspace and manifold learning
  • Sequential learning and decision methods
  • Source separation
  • Tensor and structured matrix methods
  • Machine learning from big data
  • Scalable learning algorithms
  • Applications including: speech, audio & music, image & video, biomedical signals & images, communications, bioinformatics, biometrics, systems biology, computational intelligence, genomic signals & sequences, social networks, games, smart grid, security & privacy

Data Analysis and Signal Processing Competition

Data Analysis and Signal Processing Competition is being organized in conjunction with the workshop. The goal of the competition is to advance the current state-of-the-art in theoretical and practical aspects of signal processing domains. The problems are selected to reflect current trends, evaluate existing approaches on common benchmarks, and identify critical new areas of research. Winners will be announced and awards given at the workshop.

Best Student 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 honorarium (to be divided equally between all student authors of the paper), and a certificate 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.

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit a double column paper of up to six pages using the electronic submission procedure. Accepted papers will be published on on a password-protected website that will be available during the workshop. The presented papers will be published in and indexed by IEEE Xplore.
