A Virtual Workshop on Applications and Methods in Acoustics, EM, Radar, and Sonar

This virtual workshop is organized in cooperation between Lund University, Saab, and IEEE Sweden (SP, MTT/AP). The aim is to provide the participants with a venue to discuss and learn about theory and applications of Modern Optimization and Machine Learning.  

The focus is on practical problems and the choice of methods. 

When: 19 May 2021, 09.00 - 17.00

Where: Online at the zoom platform

Keynote:  IEEE DL Professor Pier Luigi Dragotti, Imperial College, London

Topics of Interest

  • Inverse Problems, Optimization, Compressive Sensing, and Machine Learning
  • Applications in Acoustics, Electromagnetics, Radar, Sonar, and Wave Propagation

IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Professor Pier Luigi Dragotti from Imperial College, London will present the keynote.

Presentations will be held by researchers from academia and the industry.
