In recent years there has been a surge of research in the interfaces between mathematical optimization, statistics, information theory, data mining, signal processing and wireless communication, leading to new powerful mathematical techniques as well as efficient algorithms for important applications in information sciences. The interplay between the information sciences and the applied mathematics communities has been greatly beneficial to both sides: modern optimization and statistics have significantly broadened the class of information science problems considered solvable, while applications in data mining, signal processing and communications provide great impetus for new algorithmic tools and analysis in statistics and optimization. The goal of this workshop is threefold: (1) to provide introductory tutorials in the area of mathematical optimization, sparse signal processing and wireless communication for interested students and engineers, and (2) to feature recent advances in the field and highlight emerging challenges and applications, and (3) to invite some speakers from industry to illustrate the impact of technology in information sciences. The workshop will bring together leading researchers in signal processing, communications and optimization from academia, industry and government, and will showcase recent new results on algorithmic methods and complexity analysis in diverse areas such as estimation and detection theory, MIMO radar, interference management, image/speech processing, beamforming and array processing, communication systems and networks, and so on.

The MIIS workshop will be organized in the style of a typical week-long IMA (Institute of Mathematics and Applications, University of Minnesota, USA) event, providing ample time for interactions between speakers and local participants. There will also be a poster session.
