The Mini-course “Non-linear Approximation Techniques in Signal and Image Recovery”


The Information Technology Institute (ITI) of Vietnam National University-Hanoi is pleased to announce the Mini-course “Non-linear Approximation Techniques in Signal and Image Recovery”. This Mini-course is sponsored by the ForMathVietnam Programme and following the Digital Signal Processing Summer School (DSPSS) (see ; and ) which was successfully held in Hanoi from July 17 to 29, 2006.

The objective of this Mini-course is to provide the theoretical foundations for understanding, developing, and applying nonlinear signal and image processing techniques. Applications will cover denoising, deconvolution, reconstruction, and compression problems. The prerequisite is basic undergraduate-level mathematics. A distinguished French scientist Professor Dr. Patrick L. Combettes from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie ( Paris 6) will teach the Mini-course in English during his visit to the ITI. It will last four days during the period from February 1 – 7, 2007 (except Saturday and Sunday) with three hours of lectures each day. Lectures will be accompanied by lab experiments and exercises.

The target audience includes senior undergraduate students, graduate students, instructors, and researchers in Electrical Engineering and Electronics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and related areas. Interested scientists at all levels, especially, the DSPSS participants are welcome to apply. Upon successful completion of the Mini-course, each participant will receive an ITI certificate of participation.

No registration fee or attendance fee is required. Participants are to cover their own travel and lodging costs if any. Lunches for all participants during study time will be provided by the Information Technology Institute, VNU.

Dates: February 1-7, 2007.

Venue: Information Technology Institute, VNU, Bldg. E3, 144 Xuan Thuy, Cau Giay, Hanoi.

Application Process:

Applicants must complete an Application Form and email it to Mr. Ton That Nhat Khanh (see the address below). The number of participants is limited. The DSPSS participants are in the list of priorities. The deadline for application submission is December 20, 2006. Successful candidates will be notified via email by January 10, 2007.
