Call For Papers

* CALL FOR PAPERS - 2012 IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing

2012 IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing
September 23-26, 2012.
Santander, Spain

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 single-track sessions.

* TOPICS OF INTEREST include but are 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 and Computational genomics
- Social networks
- Biometrics
- Energy and smart grid

* DATA COMPETITION, supported by

A data and signal analysis competition is being organized.
Winners will present their work and receive their award during the

Goal: The goal is to select/design a classifier (and any
pre-processing systems, including a feature extractor) that correctly
classifies a pair of an employee and a resource (a resource can be a
computer, a data base, or a data portal etc) into one of two classes:
access or non-access. The winner will be the submission that minimize
the number of manual access grant/removal operations in the future
testing data.

Eligibility: Anyone.

Registration: Registration is not required. However, if you wish to
receive important updates on the competition by email then please
send a request to the address provided on the web page.

Deadline: Submissions must be emailed to the email address
provided at the web page no later than one week after the main
conference paper submission deadline, i.e. by May 14, 2012.

Awards: Up to three newest Kindle Fire tablet computers from
Amazon will be awarded as prizes. Amazon will support and invite the
winners to present their results at Amazon's new SLU headquarter in
Seattle, USA.

Data and more details: Available on the competition page.
