This is an event organized by the PIMS CRG in Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis.


International Conference on
Applied Harmonic Analysis and Multiscale Computing, July 25-28 (Monday-Thursday), 2011


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 are 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 areas. The anticipated duration of contributed talks is 20 minutes. The total number of 20-minute contributed talks is limited to 40. You must submit an abstract before the deadline May 20, 2011. To be included in the scientific program of the conference, you must 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 early so as to take advantage of a discounted registration fee.


Summer School: July 29-31 (Friday-Sunday), 2011


This summer school is right after the above conference. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and young researchers are welcome.


July 29: Learning theory by Steve Smale and Ding-Xuan Zhou
July 30: MRA based wavelet frame and applications by Zuowei Shen
Morning of July 31: Algorithms of wavelets and framelets by Bin Han


For graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are attending the international conference and summer school, financial support is available to cover local expenses (2 persons share a two-bedroom ensuite hotel room). Limited funding for travel expenses is also available.


The summer school will finish at noon July 31, 2011 and all participants are expected to depart in the afternoon of July 31.
