Joint IEEE SPS and EURASIP Summer School on Robust Signal Processing, Rüdesheim (Rhine), Germany, Sept. 19th-24th 2016

The  Summer School on Robust Signal Processing is organized by the Signal Processing Group at Technische Universität Darmstadt. We invite Ph.D. students, early career researchers and engineering practitioners to participate in the Summer School, what promises to be a unique event run by world-class experts.

The Summer School provides insights on advances in statistical signal processing with emphasis on robust
statistics for signal processing. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and study innovative robust methods and algorithms for signal processing and engineering at large supported by numerous advanced real-life applications.

Program in a Nutshell

  • „Robust Norms in Sparse Representations and Compressed Sensing“, Gonzalo Arce, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, USA
  • „Robust and Scalable Bootstrap for Large Scale Data Analysis“, Visa Koivunen, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland
  • „Regularized M-estimators of the Covariance Matrix“, Esa Ollila, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland
  • „Robust Estimation, Random Matrix Theory and Applications to Signal Processing“, Frédéric Pascal, École Supérieure d’Électricité, Gif-sur-Yvette, France
  • „Robust Signal Processing for Dependent Data with Applications in Biomedical Signal Processing“, Abdelhak Zoubir and Michael Muma, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany

The material will be presented in an interactive and stimulating way: each day, after the lectures, the
speakers will be available for face-to-face discussion with the participants who are interested in deepening some of the material covered in the talks. Participants will have also the opportunity to present their own work, if they wish so, and get feedback from other participants as well as from the lecturers.

The Summer School has received full international recognition and sponsorship from the IEEE SPS,
EURASIP and numerous organizations, which allows affordable prices at a top-class touristic and
historical location.

The Summer School will be held at the historic hotel “Zum grünen Kranz”, located in the historic city
center of Rüdesheim am Rhein, Germany. Rüdesheim is a picturesque winemaking town in the Rhine
Gorge and thereby part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The venue can be reached by car (45min) or train (80min) from Frankfurt Airport. Accommodation is
available on-site. Up to 40 students can be accommodated in shared and double rooms at a special rate.
Lunches (soup, pasta, regional cuisine, salad etc.) including soft drinks, coffee breaks (including cookies, cake and fruit) are included in the registration fee. An exciting excursion along the Rhine will be organized during the Summer School as a special social event.
