# GSI’17 « Geometric Science of Information » November 7th to 9th, Paris - France CALL FOR PAPERS

Following the success of GSI’13 & GSI’15, the organizing committe is honored to anounce GSI 2017 to be hosted at Mines ParisTech from November 7th to 9th.

We will welcome mathematicians and engineers, with common interest for Geometric tools and their applications for Information analysis.

It emphasizes an active participation of young researchers to discuss emerging areas of collaborative research on “Geometric Science of Information and their Applications”.

Current and ongoing uses of Information Geometry Manifolds in applied mathematics are the following: Advanced Signal/Image/Video Processing, Complex Data Modeling and Analysis, Information Ranking and Retrieval, Coding, Cognitive Systems, Optimal Control, Statistics on Manifolds, Topology/Machine/Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Speech/sound recognition, natural language treatment, Big Data Analytics, etc., which are substantially relevant for industry.

The Conference will be therefore held in areas of priority/focused themes and topics of mutual interest with the aim to:

Provide an overview on the most recent state-of-the-art Exchange mathematical information/knowledge/expertise in the area Identify research areas/applications for future collaboration Identify academic & industry labs expertise for further collaboration

GSI 2017 will be an interdisciplinary event and will unify skills from Geometry, Probability and Information Theory.

Proceedings are published in Springer's Lecture Note in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

- April 3rd 2017 : Deadline for 8 pages SPRINGER LNCS format
- June 12th 2017 : Notification of acceptance
- July 31st 2017: Final paper submission
