Tensor Theory and Applications Meeting


Sanderson Building, King's Buildings, EH9 3JL


Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 09:30 to 16:30

The goal of the meeting is to bring together researchers in the theory and application of tensor based methods. The scope is to disseminate the current methodology in tensor analysis and the communication of algorithms, technologies, practical issues and applications.

Tensor based methods have found many applications in a number of scientific fields such as telecommunications, neuroscience, medicine and biology. The ability to express data forms in a high dimensional setting enables advanced processing and visualisation capabilities. Members of the engineering community and researchers in related areas from academia and industry are invited to participate in this interdisciplinary meeting and submit an abstract about their recent work if so they wish. A selection of abstracts will be scheduled for oral presentation and the rest will be invited to be presented as posters. (N.B., Posters previously presented in other scientific meetings are acceptable.)

The tentative schedule of the meeting is.
