Sampling Theory and Applications 2003
May 26 - 30, 2003, in Strobl, Austria

This is the first announcement and call for paper for the
Fifth International Conference on Sampling Theory and Applications.

Sampling theory is at the interface of analog/digital conversion and is therefore ubiquitous in modern technology. Sampling theory has established itself as a important field of analysis with strong interdisciplinary links and a wide range of applications.

This interdisciplinary conference will gather mathematicians, engineers, and applied scientists involved in modern data processing problems. Its main purpose is to exchange information at all levels on the state-of-the-art of sampling theory. Emphasis will be given to

Topics include, but are not limited to

  1. Nonuniform Sampling
  2. Numerical Methods and fast numerical Algorithms
  3. Sampling and Interpolation in Spline-Type Spaces
  4. Effective Bandwidth and Noise Reduction
  5. Frames, Non-orthogonal Expansions, and Applications
  6. Greedy Algorithms and Thresholding methods
  7. Radial Basis Functions
  8. Wavelet and Gabor methods in sampling theory
  9. Sampling Topics related to Wavelet and Gabor Theory

Local Organizers: Hans G. Feichtinger and NuHAG (Numerical Harmonic Analysis Group), Department of Mathematics, University of Vienna, Strudlhofgasse 4, A-1090 Wien

Format: There will be two invited one-hour lectures per day, 30 minute talks, poster session for the more technical and specific presentations, and the opportunity for software presentations.

Location: Strobl is a scenic village in the lake region near Salzburg with a beautiful and stimulating environment. Local transportation to and from Vienna and Salzburg at the beginning and end of the conference will be organized.

Accompanying Event: Assuming sufficient interest we plan a one or two-day workshop on ``Nonuniform Sampling Algorithms and their MATLAB implementation'' at the University of Vienna immediately preceding the conference on May (23th and) 24th.
