Call for Papers

The 2011 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA’11) will be held at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, and is sponsored by the Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The objective of this workshop is to provide an informal environment for the discussion of problems in audio and acoustics and signal processing techniques leading to novel solutions. Technical sessions will be scheduled throughout the day. Afternoons will be left free for informal meetings among workshop participants.

Papers describing original research and new concepts are solicited for technical sessions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

Acoustic scenes

  • Source separation and localization
  • Signal enhancement: Echo cancellation, dereverberation, noise reduction, restoration
  • Microphone arrays
  • Multichannel audio acquisition and reproduction
  • Room acoustics

Music and environmental audio

  • Musical signal analysis: Segmentation, classification, transcription
  • Creation of musical sounds: Waveforms, instrument models, singing
  • Audio matching and retrieval
  • Audio effects

Audio coding

  • Waveform coding and parameter coding
  • Spatial audio coding
  • Sparse representations
  • Mobile devices
  • Digital rights

Hearing and perception

  • Auditory perception
  • Spatial hearing
  • Quality assessment
  • Hearing aids

Four page papers must be submitted by May 13, 2011
