Technical Seminar on Convex Optimization

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Title: Convex Optimization and Its Applications in Signal Processing

Time/Date: May 19th, 1:00 – 2:20pm

Place: Toldo Biulding Room 204, University of Windsor

Abstract: 

Recently, we have witnessed the advances of convex optimization, including theoretical aspects (e.g., interior-point methods) and general-purpose software tools (e.g., SeDuMi). It has been recognized as an extremely useful technique in helping with addressing a wide range of signal processing problems, including those previously considered intractable. This talk aims to provide a tutorial of convex optimization techniques relevant to signal processing, which could be used to identify and formulate convex optimization problems arising in signal processing scenarios, and characterize the structure of optimal solutions to signal processing problems. The talk will also cover some successful signal processing applications to concretely demonstrate the effectiveness of convex optimization and its impact on signal processing.

More info at http://epec2015.ieee.ca/tours/

Tour #1: Renewable Energy Tour

October 26th 12:30-19:15

The first tour highlights various “Renewable Energy” technologies and provides participants to with the opportunity to visit the following three sites:

  • a 40 MW wind farm consisting of 18 wind turbines
  • a 80 MW solar farm (one of the largest in Canada)
  • a Landfill-To-Energy generation site that uses landfill methane to produce clean energy.

Tour #2: Hydro Power & Energy/Environment Research Tour

October 28th 12:30-16:00

The second tour enlightens the participants on the topics of “Hydro Power & Energy/Environmental Research” through visits to the following two sites:

  • the Fanshawe Hydro Electric Dam
  • the WindEEE Dome which is the world’s first hexagonal wind tunnel capable of highly complex simulations.

Registration is through the EDAS system http://edas.info/r18753 (note also that new users will need to create an account on the EDAS system).
