11th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing

Date: Monday 12 – Wednesday 14 December 2016
Location: IET Austin Court, Birmingham


This event builds upon a very successful series of previous conferences. From the first event held in Bath in 1985 to the most recent one held in Birmingham in 2014 as successful as its predecessors, the organising committee is delighted to announce the 11th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing to be held 12 – 14 December, 2016.

Signal processing constitutes an important area for the application of mathematical concepts and techniques fuelled, for example, by developments in mobile communications, networks, multimedia system, genomics and bioengineering, neural signal processing, big data processing and internet of things. The aim of the conference is to bring together mathematicians, statisticians and engineers with a view to exploring recent developments and identifying fruitful avenues for further research. It is hoped that the meeting will help to attract more mathematicians into this important and challenging field.

The conference will follow the same successful format as before, comprising tutorials, keynote addresses and non-overlapping technical sessions consisting of oral and poster presentations.

A social programme will be organised and will include a reception to welcome delegates.


The deadline for submissions has now passed. Successful authors will be invited to submit a four page paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings by 4 November 2016.

Papers describing the application of these techniques in physical modelling, communications, financial modelling, medicine, meteorology, radar, seismology, sonar, ocean science, multimedia, instrumentation and control, audio, and acoustics, etc., are invited:

Statistical Signal Processing
Compressive Sampling
Inverse Problems
Adaptive Signal Processing
