Special Session 3:

Matrix and Tensor Decomposition: New algorithms & Applications

Matrix and tensor decomposition have been widely used in various domains, from signal processing, machine learning to neuroscience, as powerful tools for dimensionality reduction, feature extraction, clustering, and classification. The main reason behind their applications is the natural high/multi-dimensional array structure of modern datasets that provides good opportunities to exploit matrix and tensor decomposition-based approaches. More specifically, matrix/tensor decomposition allows factorizing data into several basis components, and hence, can reveal important hidden patterns and new insights from the data. However, recent years have witnessed a rapid increase in "Big Data" of which speed, variety, and volume of information are significantly growing over time. It has led to many issues that are still challenging for the state-of-the-art matrix and tensor decomposition methods, such as (i) large-scale matrix/tensor decomposition, (ii) fast adaptive decomposition of multivariate and high-dimensional data streams, (iii) decomposition in the presence of data corruption, uncertainty, and imperfection, to name a few. Therefore, it is imperative to develop new algorithms and techniques capable of dealing with such issues as well as to demonstrate their use with new applications. This special session is about recent advances in the important field of matrix and tensor decomposition which includes:
  • New matrix decomposition algorithms
  • Subspace estimation and tracking
  • Fast algorithms for tensor decomposition
  • Streaming tensor decomposition
  • Robust tensor/matrix decomposition
  • Robust subspace tracking
  • New applications of tensor/matrix decomposition
