Call for Late-Breaking Posters & Demos

Submission of Extended Abstracts due by 23rd May 2018

We are pleased to invite you to submit an extended abstract to support a late-breaking poster presentation or demonstration at LVA/ICA 2018, which will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, from the 2nd to the 6th of July, 2018. Extended abstracts may provide an overview of prototype systems, initial concepts, and early results that may be of interest to the latent variable analysis and signal separation community.

If you would like to present your work as a poster or give a demo at the conference, please submit an extended abstract as a PDF (2 pages maximum) directly to by 23rd May for a light peer-review. Accepted abstracts will be not be included in the LVA/ICA 2018 proceedings, but will be made freely available via the conference website.
