International Conference on
Applied Harmonic Analysis and Multiscale Computing,
July 25-28 (Monday-Thursday), 2011,
University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada

Conference site: ETLE 1-003, 1-013, and 1-017 at Engineering Teaching and Learning Complex (ETLE) building at the University of Alberta.
Summer school site at ETLE 2-001 (also used as discussion room during the conference).
See campus map here for conference location.

This international conference concentrates on recent advances on applied and computational harmonic analysis, multiscale-based methods, and their various applications in the broad sense. The topics of interest include, but not limited to,

Applied harmonic analysis
Approximation theory
Compressive sampling and sparsity
Computational methods
Image and signal processing
Learning theory and algorithms
Multiscale-related numerical algorithms
Sampling theorems in signal processing
Subdivision schemes
Wavelets and framelets

The meeting will feature 1-hour plenary talks, 40-minute and 20-minute invited talks, and 20-minute contributed talks, as well as a poster session. We invite you to contribute a talk or a poster in any of the above area. The anticipated duration of contributed talks is 20 minutes. The total number of 20-minute contributed talks is limited. You have to submit an abstract before the deadline May 20, 2011. To be included in the scientific program of the conference, you need to register online and we must receive a payment from you by June 10, 2010. If you would like to attend the conference, but do not plan to give a presentation, we also encourage you to register so as to take advantage of a discounted registration fee.
