Breaking News

  • ICA 2007 conference to occur in London, UK on September 2007.

Welcome to the ICA 2006 website

The sixth of a series of workshops on Independent Component Analysis (ICA) and Blind Source Separation (BSS) will be held in Charleston, South Carolina, USA, with the latest developments in one of the most exciting areas of statistical signal processing/unsupervised machine learning. ICA theory has received attention from several research communities including machine learning, neural networks, statistical signal processing and Bayesian modeling. ICA/BSS has applications at the intersection of many science and engineering disciplines concerned with understanding and extracting useful information from data as diverse as neuronal activity and brain images, bioinformatics, communications, the world wide web, audio, video, sensor signals, or time series.

Charleston is America's most beautifully preserved architectural and historic treasure, with a rich, 300 year heritage. Charleston lends itself to walking, and many visitors find this to be a convenient way to see everything the city has to offer. Beautiful homes, churches and public buildings line the city's tree-lined streets. Magnificent formal gardens grace much of the Historic District, adding to the beauty of the colonial, antebellum, and Victorian architecture. Some of the more popular attractions are White Point Gardens, and the Waterfront Park. Visitors to Charleston are constantly amazed at the quality and variety of restaurants that can be enjoyed. These range from southern-style to five-star French and everything in between! Shopping in Charleston is just as diverse and exciting. Be sure to visit the quaint antique shops along King Street, and browse for hand-made sweetgrass baskets and other crafts in Charleston's Historic District and famous Old City Market.

ICA 2006 will be held on the best Hotel in the Historic District, the Francis Marion. In this beautiful setting, the workshop will feature keynote addresses, technical presentations, special sessions and tutorials that will be included in the registration.
