IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing


OCTOBER 13-16, 2019 |  Pittsburgh, PA, USA |  | Deadline Extended: 19 June 2019


The 29th MLSP workshop in the series of workshops organized by the IEEE Signal Processing Society MLSP Technical Committee will present the most recent and exciting advances in machine learning for signal processing through keynote talks, tutorials, as well as special and regular single-track sessions. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers on relevant algorithms and applications including, but not limited to:

- Learning theory and modeling

- Neural networks and deep learning

- Bayesian Learning and modeling

- Sequential learning; sequential decision methods

- Information-theoretic learning

- Graphical and kernel models

- Bounds on performance

- Source separation and independent component analysis

- Signal detection, pattern recognition and classification

- Tensor and structured matrix methods

- Machine learning for big data

- Large scale learning

- Dictionary learning, subspace and manifold learning

- Semi-supervised and unsupervised learning

- Active and reinforcement learning

- Learning from multimodal data

- Resource efficient machine learning

- Cognitive information processing

- Bioinformatics applications

- Biomedical applications and neural engineering

- Speech and audio processing applications

- Image and video processing applications

- Intelligent multimedia and web processing

- Communications applications

- Other applications including social networks, games, smart grid, security and privacy


MLSP 2019 Data Analysis and Signal Processing Competition is being organized in conjunction with the workshop. The goal of competition is to advance the current state-of-the-art in theoretical and practical aspects of machine learning and signal processing domains.


Prospective authors are invited to submit a double column paper of up to six pages using the electronic submission procedure at The presented papers will be published in and indexed by IEEE Xplore.


Paper submission deadline extended - June 19, 2019

Decision notification - July 30, 2019

Camera-ready papers and Author advance registration -  August 23, 2019
