The international conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation, LVA/ICA, is an interdisciplinary forum where researchers and practitioners can experience a broad range of exciting theories and applications involving signal processing, applied statistics, machine learning, linear and multilinear algebra, numerical analysis and optimization, and other areas targeting Latent Variable Analysis problems. The 14th LVA/ICA will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK from the 2nd to the 6th of July 2018. The conference is organised by the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP); and the Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR).



Conference proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). More information on the conference and upcoming Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC) will follow shortly. For information about previous LVA/ICA conferences visit:
