DFT 2020: The District Fourier TalksOctober 24, 2020

The District Fourier Talks 2020 (DFT) is the inaugural conference for an annual meeting of local mathematicians, engineers, and applied scientists. This year, the conference will be virtual, hosted by American University. Talks/posters will be presented online, with virtual break-out sessions. The DFT is for exchanging and exploring recent advances and trends in harmonic analysis and applications. Topics will include signal and image processing, compressed sensing, coding theory, control theory, computational neuroscience, information theory, real and complex analysis, and theoretical, applied, and computational harmonic analysis.

The DFT 2020 features plenary talks by prominent speakers, special sessions on topics reecting the current trends in harmonic analysis and engineering applications.
