Summer School in Biomedical Engineering
Decomposition Methods for Multidimensional Data
August, 7-11, 2006
Erfurt, Germany

The decomposition of multidimensional data is a problem that exists in a
variety of biomedical engineering applications, as well as in many other
fields of science. Today there are a number of advanced techniques to
break down a set of data (e.g. a human electroencephalogram) into a
finite number of units or atoms, which are defined in multiple
dimensions (e.g. time, space, frequency). However, it remains
challenging to apply these techniques in such a way that the obtained
atoms reflect functionally meaningful entities of the underlying signal
generating system (e.g. the human brain).

The aim of the International Summer School is to provide in depth
education and practical exercises on decomposition methods for
multidimensional data. Special focus is laid on the correct
interpretation of the obtained atoms in terms of the underlying
functionality. Moreover, the International Summer School is expected to
facilitate the exchange of ideas on latest developments in the field.
