#15 Meeting: IEEE Information Theory Workshop

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 areas:

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:

Inquiries about the workshop should be directed to one of the three co-chairs:
