AbstractThe organizing committee of MLSP 2012 is delighted to welcome you to the 22nd International Workshop
on Machine Learning for Signal Processing 2012. This series of workshops is the major event organized
annually by the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Technical Committee, and is sponsored by the IEEE
Signal Processing Society. This year's workshop will take place in the unique framework of Palacio de la
Magdalena, located on the Magdalena Peninsula of the city of Santander, being the first time the workshop
comes to Spain.
This year we received a record number of 202 submissions, of which 104 were accepted after the review
process, a 51% acceptance rate. We would like to thank all authors for their high‐quality contributions.
Accepted papers have been arranged in four oral and three poster sessions, including a special session on
Social Network Analysis. In addition to these, there is also a report on the 2012 Data Competition and the
two top performers will present their works during the conference. This workshop will cover several hot
topics in the field, including Bayesian learning, Gaussian Processes, Kernel Methods, Distributed Learning,
and Social Networks. Several papers will also deal with applications of MLSP techniques.
The workshop will also include three keynotes by recognized experts. We would like to thank Prof. Martin
Wainwright, Dr. Francis Bach and Prof. Ali H. Sayed for their willingness to present at the workshop some of
the most recent advances in salient topics. For the traditional first‐day tutorials, we are pleased to count
with Drs. Bhiksha Raj and Raviv Raich.
An event such as the MLSP workshop would not be possible without the work of many individuals, to who
we are in debt. Thanks to the Technical Chairs for an excellent work and for putting together such an
interesting program, and to the 113 reviewers whose expert opinion made the whole process possible. We
would also like to recognize the excellent and professional work of the Organizing Committee, including the
Special Session Chairs Emilio Parrado‐Hernández and Jocelyn Chanussot, Publicity Chairs Marc Van Hulle
and Luis Gómez Chova, Web and Publication Chair Jan Larsen, Data Competition Chairs Kenneth E. Hild II,
Vince Calhoun, Weifeng Liu, Ken Montanez and Catherine Huang, and the Local Organizing Chairs Jesús
Ibáñez, Javier Vía and Steven Van Vaerenbergh. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the support of the
following companies and institutions: Amazon, PASCAL 2 Network of Excellence, Ministerio de Ciencia e
Innovación, Universidad de Cantabria, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Gobierno de Cantabria,
Ayuntamiento de Santander, and Asociación Española de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación.
