Invited keynote speakers

  • Kees Schouhamer Immink (Turing Machine Inc., recipient of the 2017 IEEE medal of Honor!) Progress in Constrained Codes.
    Constrained, or line, coding is a somewhat nebulous term which we may define by either inclusion or exclusion (Cattermole). A constrained code converts to a signal format which facilitates detection in the presence of channel impairments. It further caters for receiver timing on bit, codeword, and frame level. The speaker will present a survey of constrained codes that have found application in mass storage devices. Specifically, he will discuss spectral shaping, run-length limited, two-dimensional, and Pearson codes.
  • Lieven Vandenberghe (UCLA), Semidefinite programming methods for continuous sparse optimization.
    Recent applications of convex optimization in signal processing extend  1-norm techniques for sparse vector optimization to continuous sparse  optimization problems, in which signals are decomposed as sums of a  few elements from an infinite dictionary. Methods of this type have been proposed for superresolution, gridless  compressed sensing, and line spectrum and direction of arrival estimation. The subject of the talk will be the semidefinite optimization problems  encountered in these applications. Simple, constructive derivations will be presented for the semidefinite  representations of the underlying penalty functions. Convex geometry and duality play a central role, and connections with  classical results in system theory, such as the Kalman-Yakubovich-Popov  lemma, lead to several useful extensions. We will also comment on algorithms for solving the challenging semidefinite  optimization problems that arise in signal processing applications of continuous sparse optimization.
