The Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations (SPARS) workshop brings 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.

SPARS 2019 is held on the campus of the engineering school INP-ENSEEIHT, in the city center of Toulouse, on July 1-4, 2019.

In addition to 9 plenary lectures by world renowned experts, the workshop features a single track with 33 talks and 4 poster sessions (program). Lunch is provided on-site.

The social program includes a welcome reception at restaurant Le Moaï and a banquet at Hôtel-Dieu Saint-Jacques.

SPARS 2019 is held the week before IEEE SampTA 2019 in Bordeaux and IEEE ISIT 2019 in Paris. Toulouse also hosts the French AI event PFIA 2019 the same week than SPARS.
