Upcoming conferences (concern Fees) - The latent ones

Saint-Malo Intra-Muros. I went like an " animal sot " to Saint-Malo (Brittany) and returned enchanted by the 2010 edition of the Latent Variable Analysis and Independant Component Analysis ( LVA-ICA 2010 ). The four excellent keynote/plenary speeches : When tensor decomposition meets compressed sensing, by Pierre Comon (University of Nice, France), admittedly with an ad-like title, more akin to coherence than CS ; Discrimination with deformation for classification, by Stéphane Mallat (Ecole Polytechnique, France), when mapping complex wavelet coefficients to the lower frequencies yields a scattering metric; Bayesian non-negative matrix factorisation methods to detect dye labelled DNA oligonucleotides in multiplexed Raman spectra, by Mark Girolami (University of Glasgow, UK); 2nd order statistics + A 3rd data dimension = Just weight and see!, by Arie Yeredor (Tel-Aviv University, Israel); should be webcasted soon (stay tuned, i got audio bootlegs for personal use).
