UPDATE: Information about the 2009 International Workshop on Local and Non-Local Approximation in Image Processing, LNLA 2009, can be found here.
The 2008 International Workshop on Local and Non-Local Approximation in Image Processing, LNLA2008 was held in Lausanne, Switzerland on August 23-24, 2008. It is organized by Tampere International Center for Signal Processing (TICSP) as a satellite event of the EUSIPCO 2008 Conference (August 25-29, 2008).
The purpose of the LNLA workshop is to gather leading specialists working or interested in the areas of adaptive local and non-local image approximations and wavelet-type expansions and create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to talk about the most important issues in these fields. Another goal is to reach a unified view of the different approaches and generate ideas about novel image models which can explain and drive future development.
To further stimulate the discussions, four invited lectures on key topics are organized. All accepted papers will be published by the Tampere International Center for Signal Processing in its Proceedings and Report Series.
Call for Papers:
The LNLA 2008 workshop is sponsored by the IEEE SP/CAS Chapter in Finland, Tampere International Center for Signal Processing and the European Association for Signal Processing. It continues the tradition of the TICSP International Workshop on Spectral Methods and Multirate Signal Processing (SMMSP), held seven times in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, and of the TICSP International Workshop on Transforms and Filter Banks, held twice in 1998 and 1999.
