New paradigms for latent factor estimation

FACTORY is a scientific project funded by the European Research Council under a Consolidator Grant (2016-2021) and coordinated by Cédric Févotte (CNRS) at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT), France.


Edouard Pauwels receives a CNRS Bronze Medal

The bronze medal rewards initial research that has established a researcher as a specialist in their field. Edouard (from IRIT) co-supervises Camille Castera's PhD on optimisation for deep learning together with Jérôme Bolte (Toulouse School of Economics).

ERC FACTORY first PhD defenses

Louis Filstroff and Olivier Gouvert will be defending their PhD on 13th Nov. and 19th Dec. 2019, respectively (ENSEEIHT).

Proudly hosting SPARS 2019 in Toulouse, 1-4 July 2019.

The Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations (SPARS) workshop will bring together people from statistics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, working on the general area of sparsity-related techniques and computational methods, for high dimensional data analysis, signal processing, and related applications.

Co-chairing the workshop Optimisation & Learning in Toulouse, 10-13 September 2018.

Organised within the Labex CIMI semester on optimisation.

Nicolas Dobigeon is appointed junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF)
