The international Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing (BASP) Frontiers workshop was created to promote synergies between selected topics in astronomy and biomedical sciences, around common challenges for signal processing.

Building on the success of the first two workshops in 2011 and 2013, the BASP Frontiers 2015 workshop will open its floor to many interesting hot topics in theoretical, astrophysical, and biomedical signal processing, with a particular focus on imaging.

The workshop is run by an internationally recognized scientific organizing committee and will gather around 75 participants.

Following our tradition, BASP Frontiers 2015 will take place in a very nice resort in the Swiss Alps named Villars-sur-Ollon, close to Lausanne and Lake Geneva. All participants will be accommodated in 4 star hotel in a full board regime. We believe that the most fruitful discussions often take place after the sessions themselves, on the terrace, or during breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We hope that the winter atmosphere will further promote discussion and creativity.

What has changed relative to 2013?

Virtually nothing. Same great venue, great food, great bar, great slopes, great science… Broadened scientific areas of focus, even simpler conference registration procedure, no Skype talks and associated internet access interruption onsite, no daily ski registration queue onsite.

Many thanks for you participation.

BASP Frontiers will be back in winter 2017.

On behalf of the scientific and organising committees.

Best regards
