My first conference paper got accepted!

Hi everybody!

As you all probably know, I’m a Ph.D. researcher at the department of electrical engineering of KU Leuven. As a researcher you also have to write some conference and journal papers from time to time ;). A few months ago I submitted a paper for the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO). This is a flagship conference of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and will this year be held in Nice, France. In the submitted paper, check it out here, I introduce a new deterministic method for large-scale blind source separation using higher-order tensors. Yesterday, I got the awesome news that my paper has been accepted for publication :). The reviewers were in general quite satisfied, however, I have to correct some parts of the paper. That’s it for now! I’ll try to write a post about my experiences at the conference and maybe add some pictures of Nice.

My first homepage!

Hi all!

This is my very first blog post and I hope I can keep posting regurlarly from now on! It will only be a very short post, but hey, we have to start somewhere. As you have probably, or hopefully, read in the About section, I’m a Ph.D. researcher affiliated with the Electrical Engineering Department (ESAT) at KU Leuven. I found out a while ago that ESAT offers his researchers the opportunity to put a homepage online. So I thought I start learning some basic HTML and make my own website! A colleague of mine then directed me to this fantastic website where you can learn all the basics, and more, called Codecademy. Really! Go check it out.

All right! Now its time to check out the website! You might think: “wow, that’s quite minimalistic”. Indeed! That’s the point; most of the information is already online, I figured. Things like my contact information and my affiliations can all be found on the Who’s Who page of KU Leuven. A lof of my research stuff you can find on LinkedIn, as well as a list of my publications. Finally, I just added the last two missing pieces: my Twitter and my blog; and, you know, Facebook doesn’t really fit in this setting ;). I really like the simple design, but I’m not yet sure about the colors and all. So, if you have any ideas or remarks you want to share, let yourself go in the comments :).
