Call for PapersMachine learning, as the driving force of this wave of AI, provides powerful solutions to many real-world technical and scientific challenges. The 28th MLSP workshop, an annual event 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:
- Learning theory and modeling
- Neural networks and deep learning
- Bayesian Learning and modeling
- Sequential learning, sequential decision methods
- Information-theoretic learning
- Graphical and kernel models
- Bounds on performance
- Source separation and independent component analysis
- Signal detection, pattern recognition and classification
- Tensor and structured matrix methods
- Machine learning for big data
- Large scale learning
- Dictionary learning, subspace and manifold learning
- Semi-supervised and unsupervised learning
- Active and reinforcement learning
- Learning from multimodal data
- Resource efficient machine learning
- Cognitive information processing
- Bioinformatics applications
- Biomedical applications and neural engineering
- Speech and audio processing applications
- Image and video processing applications
- Intelligent multimedia and web processing
- Communications applications
- Other applications including social networks, games, smart grid, security and privacy
MLSP2018 CompetitionData 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 machine learning and 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.
Special SessionsMLSP 2018 will include Special Sessions that address research in emerging or interdisciplinary areas of particular interest, not covered already by traditional MLSP sessions.
Networking EventsMLSP Networking will be organized as a new initiative to focus on stimulating collaboration among participants to solve grand societal challenges using machine learning and signal processing.
Best Student AwardThe MLSP Best Student Paper Award will be granted to the best paper for which a student is the principal author and presenter.
- Papers by key conference organizers are not eligible to receive an award because of their close role in leading the review process and their ability to influence the awards selection process.
- The criteria for selecting is based on general quality, originality, subject matter, and timeliness and the paper awards shall follow the same general feeling as described ine the policy Signal Processing Society Awards (2.19 and 2.20).
- Prizes shall be equally divided among all authors and each shall receive a certificate.
- 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.
- The award will be selected by an award committee consisting of a subset of members the program committee.
- Nominations can come from registered participants and organizing committee.
- Self-nominations are not accepted or considered.
Paper submissionProspective authors are invited to submit a double column paper of up to six pages using the electronic submission procedure which will be peer-reviewed according to the procedure described in Paper Evaluation Process and Criteria.
Paper publicationAccepted 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.
Special IssueA number of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the Springer Journal of Signal Processing Systems (JSPS).
