===================================================================


The 2010 IEEE International Workshop on MACHINE LEARNING FOR SIGNAL
PROCESSING (MLSP 2010) will be held in Kittila, Finland, in
August-September 2010. MLSP 2010 is the twentieth workshop in the
series of workshops sponsored by IEEE Signal Processing Society. It
will present the most recent and exciting contributions in machine
learning for signal processing through keynote talks as well as
special and regular single-track sessions.

VENUE:

MLSP 2010 will be held in the Levi Summit conference and exhibition
centre in Kittila, Finland. Levi is one of the largest resorts in
Finnish Lapland, north of the Arctic Circle. In the summer, Levi
offers many sports activities as well as lots of wild northern nature.
The conference centre is located high on the hillside of the Levi
fell, accessible by gondola from the main village. For information on
travel and hotels see http://mlsp2010.conwiz.dk .


CONFERENCE TOPICS:

Machine learning in signal processing is concerned with tasks such as
detection, estimation, prediction, classification, and optimization,
with a wide range of applications. The following is a non-exhaustive
list of topics for MLSP 2010:

- Bayesian learning and signal processing
- Cognitive information processing
- Graphical and kernel methods
- Information-theoretic learning
- Learning theory and algorithms, including bounds on performance
- Supervised learning, including signal detection, pattern
    recognition and classification
- Unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning
- Source separation and component analysis
- Data fusion and integration
- Feature extraction, information visualization
- Sparse and structured representations
- Neural network learning
- Time-series analysis
- Adaptive filtering
- Data mining, information retrieval
- Sequential learning and sequential decision methods
- Hardware implementation of machine learning in signal processing
- Applications of machine learning: Bioinformatics, Biomedical and
    neural signal processing, Neuroinformatics, Speech and audio
    processing, Image and video processing, Computer vision,
    Sensor networks, Robot control, Communications, Cognitive radio,
    Multimodal interfaces and context modeling, Intelligent multimedia
    and web processing


SPECIAL SESSION:

A special session "Towards multimodal proactive interfaces using
large-scale machine learning" is being organized. For more
information see http://mlsp2010.conwiz.dk .


DATA COMPETITION:

In conjunction with the workshop, a data and signal analysis
competition "Mind Reading" is being organized. Winners will present
their works and receive their award during the Workshop. For more
information see http://mlsp2010.conwiz.dk .


PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:

Paper submission is now open! Authors are invited to submit a double
column paper of up to six pages using the electronic submission
procedure described at http://mlsp2010.conwiz.dk .

Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Press; electronic
proceedings will be distributed at the workshop and included in
IEEE Xplore.


PAPER AWARD:

An award will be given to the best paper.


JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE:

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions
to a special issue of Neurocomputing.


SOCIAL PROGRAM:

The social program will include an outdoors get-together party by a
campfire, a hiking excursion at a fell with wonderful views of Lapland,
and a banquet with local music.


SPONSORS: MLSP 2010 is supported by IEEE, by the IEEE Signal
Processing Society, by the PASCAL2 Network of Excellence, and by
the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. The data competition
is sponsored by Nokia and the PASCAL2 Challenge Program.
