Welcome to WASPAA 2009

The members of the organizing committee are pleased to welcome you to the 2009 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA 2009), which will be held on October 18-21, 2009, at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, U.S.A.

The WASPAA meeting is a traditional event sponsored by the Audio and Electroacoustics Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The first WASPAA meeting was convened in 1986 and since 1989 it has been held every other year. This two-and-a-half day workshop is devoted to reviewing the current state of the art as well as recent advances in signal processing with emphasis on its applications to audio and acoustics. It brings together researchers and practitioners from universities and companies working in, but not limited to, the following fields:

  • Acoustic scene analysis
  • Speech enhancement
  • Microphone array signal processing
  • Acoustic MIMO signal processing
  • Virtual acoustics
  • Audio coding
  • Auditory perception
  • Hearing aids
  • Music analysis and synthesis

Mohonk Mountain House is in the Shawangunk Mountain region of New York, an area known for its outstanding beauty. The early autumn, when foliage is near peak, is an especially attractive time for hiking and other outdoor activities. The hotel is on the shore of Mohonk Lake (elevation 1253 feet), about 90 miles north of New York City. It is a popular destination for people escaping the city to enjoy the hilly and forested surroundings.
