The Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations (SPARS) workshop will bring together people from statistics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, working on the general area of sparsity-related techniques and computational methods, for high dimensional data analysis, signal processing, and related applications.

SPARS 2019 will be held on the campus of the engineering school ENSEEIHT, in the city center Toulouse, on July 1-4, 2019.

In addition to 8 plenary lectures by world renowned experts, the workshop will feature a single track format with about 30 talks and 4 poster sessions. Lunch will be provided on-site. The social program will include a welcome reception and a banquet.

The call for paper will be released during Autumn 2018.
