Workshop 1: Optimization in machine learning, vision and image processing

6th to 7th October 2015


The scientific program includes invited talks describing the most recent advances on the theoretical properties, the numerical resolution and the modeling of optimization problems to solve problems in machine learning, vision and image processing. The typical problems optimize large vectors, matrices or tensors according to criteria involving L2, L1 and other sparsity enforcing terms, nuclear norms, Wasserstein distance and/or non-convex criteria and/or solving bi-level problems.

Participation to the workshop is free of charge but a pre-registration is required (click here for registration)

List of abstracts is available here

The schedule is also available here

The booklet with all the abstracts in pdf  is available here.



All the workshop will take place in Amphitheater Schwartz, building 1R3, Université Paul Sabatier (campus de Rangueil). The map of the campus can be downloaded here.
