Professor Christian Jutten, Professor of Statistical Signal Processing, Univ. Grenoble Alpes, Institut Universitaire de France is one of the keynote speakers of 25th national and 3rd international Iranian Conference

Professor Christian Jutten received Ph.D. and Doctor es Sciences degrees in signal processing from Grenoble Institute of Technology (GIT), France, in 1981 and 1987, respectively. From 1982, he was an Associate Professor at GIT, before being Full Professor at University Joseph Fourier of Grenoble, in 1989. Since 80’s, his research interests have been machine learning and source separation, including theory (separability, source separation in nonlinear mixtures, sparsity, multimodality) and applications (brain and hyperspectral imaging, chemical sensor array, speech). He is author or coauthor of more than 110 papers in international journals, 4 books, 27 keynote plenary talks and about 235 communications in international conferences.

He has been visiting professor at Swiss Federal Polytechnic Institute (Lausanne, Switzerland, 1989), at Riken labs (Japan, 1996) and at Campinas University (Brazil, 2010). He was director or deputy director of his lab from 1993 to 2010, especially head of the signal processing department (120 people) and deputy director of GIPSA-lab (300 people) from 2007 to 2010. He was a scientific advisor for signal and images processing at the French Ministry of Research (1996–1998) and for the French National Research Center (2003–2006 and since 2012) . He has strong cooperations with Iranian scientists since 1996, and among the 55 PhD students he supervised, 11 are Iranian!  

Christian Jutten was organizer or program chair of many international conferences, especially of the 1st International Conference on Blind Signal Separation and Independent Component Analysis in 1999 (ICA’99). He has been a member of a few IEEE Technical Committees, and currently in “ SP Theory and Methods” of the IEEE Signal Processing society. He received best paper awards of EURASIP (1992) and of IEEE GRSS (2012), and Medal Blondel (1997) from the French Electrical Engineering society for his contributions in source separation and independent component analysis. He was elevated as IEEE fellow (2008), EURASIP fellow (2013) and as a Senior Member of Institut Universitaire de France since 2008. He was the recipient of a 2012 European Research Council Advanced Grant for the project Challenges in Extraction and Separation of Sources (CHESS). In 2016, he was awarded one Grand Prix of the French Académie des Sciences for his scientific contributions.
