The location of the SSP2011 conference was amazing. It was held in Negresco Hotel in Nice, France. One of the luxury and most historic hotels in Nice and probably most famous in the entire country!
The workshop featured regular contributed paper sessions, special invited paper sessions, and a number of plenary lectures covering basic theory, methods and algorithms, and applications in statistical signal processing. The posters about statistical signal processing were mainly from French Universities but there was also a paper from GIPSA group about connectivity estimation in FMRI. I presented my paper and attended other sessions about Sparsity which related to my field. It was a fantastic opportunity to be able to meet researchers from all over the world and discuss research areas in the poster sessions and take in the beautiful views of the beach from the hotel.
