International Meeting on “High-Dimensional Data Driven Science” (HD3-2015)

Registration form
Poster presentation application form (Application deadline: 15 November, 2015) closed.
Never-ending series of innovations in measurement technologies and evolutions in information and communication technologies have led to the ongoing generation and accumulation of large quantities of high-dimensional data every day. While detailed data-centric approaches have been pursued in respective research fields, situations have been encountered where the same mathematical framework of high-dimensional data analysis can be found in a wide variety of seemingly unrelated research fields, such as estimation on the basis of undersampled Fourier transform in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in chemistry, in magnetic resonance imaging in medicine, and in astronomical interferometry in astronomy. In such situations, bringing diverse viewpoints together therefore becomes a driving force for the creation of innovative developments in various different research fields.

This meeting focuses on “Sparse Modeling” (SpM) as a methodology for creation of innovative developments through the incorporation of a wide variety of viewpoints in various research fields. The objective of this meeting is to offer a forum where researchers with interest in SpM can assemble and exchange information on latest results and newly established methodologies, and discuss future directions of the interdisciplinary studies for High-Dimensional Data-Driven science (HD3).

Date:December 14th – 17th, 2015.
