The Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations (SPARS) workshop aims at bringing together people from statistics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, fostering the exchange and dissemination of new ideas and results, both applied and theoretical, on the general area of sparsity-related techniques and computational methods, for high dimensional data analysis, signal processing, and related applications.

SPARS 2017 will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the engineering school of the University of Lisbon, on June 5-8, 2017.

In addition to 8 plenary lectures, the workshop will feature a single track format with approximately 30 standard (20min) talks, and 3 poster/demo sessions.

Submission is now closed.

          Main topics:

  • Sparse coding and representations, and dictionary learning.
  • Sparse and low-rank approximation algorithms.
  • Compressive sensing and learning.
  • Dimensionality reduction and feature extraction.
  • Sparsity in approximation theory, information theory, and statistics.
  • Low-complexity/low-dimensional regularization.
  • Statistical and Bayesian models and algorithms for sparsity.
  • Sparse network theory and analysis.
  • Sparsity and low-rank regularization.
  • Applications.
