IEEE Information Theory Society
1999 IEEE Information Theory Workshop
on Detection, Estimation, Classification and Imaging (DECI)
February 24--26, 1999, Santa Fe, New Mexico (USA)
Detection and estimation theory have historically been closely linked to
Information Theory. Analysis of communication systems relies heavily on
and contributes to advances in detection and estimation theory. Considerable
theoretical and practical advances in this area have been made possible
by the fostering of ideas from Statistics and Information Theory. This
workshop will complement those activities by seeking contributions from
researchers in signal processing, image processing, image understanding,
pattern recognition, and communication theory, whose work is heavily influenced
by information theoretic considerations. While novel applications will
play important roles, new theoretical results are expected to dominate.
The workshop will feature three plenary speakers: Andrew Barron (Yale),
H. Vincent Poor (Princeton), and Michael I. Miller (Washington University).
Invited talks and contributed talks will be presented in the following
- Detection Theory
- Estimation Theory
- Statistical Imaging
- Regularization for inverse problems
- Random Processes
- Inference based on compressed data
- Signal Processing Applications of IT
Of particular interest are papers dealing with nonparametric and robust
methods, methods for non-euclidean spaces, alternating maximization methods,
high-dimensional inverse problems, and dimensionality reduction. Authors
interested in submitting a contribution should mail four copies of a 2-3
page summary to Prof. J. O'Sullivan (address below) by October 9, 1998.
Papers will be presented either as 20-minute talks or as posters. One-page
abstracts of all papers will appear in the proceedings of the workshop
and will be posted to the workshop web site prior to the workshop.
The workshop will be held in historic Hotel Loretto, in the heart of
Santa Fe. Santa Fe possesses a rich Spanish and Native American culture
and is located in the vicinity of excellent ski resorts. It is expected
that a small number of student travel grants to the workshop will be available.
Detailed information will be included in the final call for papers and
will be posted to the workshop web site:
