Introduction | Deadlines | Paper Format


The 7th International Conference on Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation (ICA 2007) will be held at Queen Mary, University of London, from Sunday 9 September to Wednesday 12 September 2007.

Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation is one of the most exciting current areas of research in statistical signal processing and unsupervised machine learning. Following the previous ICA conferences in Aussois (France), Helsinki (Finland), San Diego (CA, USA), Nara (Japan), Granada (Spain) and Charleston (SC, USA), this year the conference is organized and sponsored by the ICA Research Network, an EPSRC-funded network of researchers in over 25 UK institutions.

The Conference will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers and special sessions. It will be organized in a single track and will be selective.

Papers are solicited in all areas of independent component analysis and signal separation, including blind source separation (BSS), as well as semi-blind, non-blind, and modelbased signal separation. Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Algorithms and Architectures: non-linear ICA, probabilistic models, sparse coding, linear & nonlinear models, convolutive & noisy models;
  • Theory: optimization, complex methods, time-frequency representations;
  • Applications: audio, bio-informatics, biomedical engineering, communications, finance, text, image processing, psychology;
  • Emerging Technologies: analogue and digital VLSI implementations, photonics;
  • Functional Neuroimaging: EEG, ERP, MEG, fMRI, applications in neuroscience;
  • Speech and Musical Audio: source separation, denoising, dereverberation, temporal models, computational auditory scene analysis (CASA), beamforming;
  • Visual and Sensory Processing: image processing and coding, image separation.

All contributions must be original, and must not have been previously published, nor be under review for presentation elsewhere. Detailed instructions for submission to ICA 2007, including formatting instructions and templates, will be available from the conference website at http://www.ica2007.org

Important Deadlines

Special session proposal deadline 1 March 2007
Paper submission deadline (EXTENDED) ** 30 March 2007 **

Paper Format

The proceedings of ICA 2007 will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series (LNCS), and will be available in printed version and electronically via LNCS Online.

Submissions (full papers) may be up to 8 pages in length, including figures and references, in single-column format, using a font no smaller than 10 points, except for the abstract, a font of 9 points may be used. Web links to supplementary material (e.g. software, videos) may appear in the paper, but reviewers will not be required to view the supplementary material. The use of LaTeX to produce your submitted paper is strongly recommended.

For information about the submission/publication process, please see Springer's LNCS webpage, and in particular:

Use the appropriate template for Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes.
