   With support of SMF (Société Mathématique de France), the objective of SEE Conference GSI’13 “GEOMETRIC SCIENCE OF INFORMATION” ( hosted by MINES ParisTech, is to bring together pure/applied mathematicians and engineers, with common interest for Geometric tools and their applications for Information analysis, with active participation of young researchers for deliberating emerging areas of collaborative research on “Information Geometry Manifolds and Their Advanced 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, Machine Learning, Speech/sound recognition, natural language treatment, etc., which are also substantially relevant for the industry.

The Workshop will be therefore being held in areas of priority/focused themes and topics of mutual interest with a mandate for:

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

This conference will be an interdisciplinary event and will federate skills from Geometry, Probability and Information Theory to address the following topics among others:

  • Computational Information Geometry
  • Hessian/Symplectic Information Geometry
  • Optimization on Matrix Manifolds
  • Probability on Manifolds
  • Optimal Transport Geometry
  • Divergence Geometry & Ancillarity
  • Machine/Manifold/Topology Learning
  • Tensor-Valued Mathematical Morphology
  • Differential Geometry in Signal Processing
  • Geometry of Audio Processing
  • Geometric Inverse Problems
  • Shape Spaces: Geometry and Statistic
  • Geometry of Shape Variability
  • Relational Metric
  • Discrete Metric Spaces

Other sessions, including Poster sessions will be organized after selection of all submitted papers.                                             

Invited talks will be scheduled with 3 Keynote speakers that will be invited for plenary sessions:

·         Yann OLLIVIER (Paris-Sud Univ.): “Information-geometric optimization: The interest of information theory for discrete and continuous optimization”

·         Hirohiko SHIMA (Yamaguchi Univ.): “Geometry of Hessian Structures” dedicated to Prof. J.L. KOSZUL

·         Giovanni PISTONE (Collegio Carlo Alberto): “Nonparametric Information Geometry”

This workshop will produce two main scientific outcomes:

  • Proceedings published in Lecture Notes by Springer for the conference
  • Special Issue with accepted long papers published by Springer after the international conference.

Important Dates:

  • Deadline for 8 pages / 1 column submission:                                               18th of February 2013
  • Notification of acceptance:                                                                          15th of April 2013
  • Final paper submission:                                                                                30th of May 2013
