Workshop on Optimal Sampling for Approximation

When & where

The workshop will take place on March 10, 2022, at Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris.

Room: amphithéâtre Hermite (ground floor).

Presentation of the workshop

The workshop aims at presenting recent advances in approximation of functions using samples, from fundamental results in approximation theory and information based complexity, to practical sampling and recontruction methods.

Organizers: Clémentine Prieur, Anthony Nouy, Guillaume Perrin.


Registration is free but mandatory.

Remote participation

Remote participation will be possible, using Zoom.

The link will be sent before the workshop to all registered participants.
