DCASE2017 Workshop, Call for Papers

Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events
16 - 17 November 2017, Munich, Germany

DCASE 2017 Workshop is the 2nd workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events. It is dedicated to recent advances on computational analysis of everyday environmental audio scenes and on closely related topics. The technical program will include invited speakers, oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed submissions, and a special session about the DCASE 2017 Challenge.

Topics

We invite submissions relevant to the field, including but not limited to:

Tasks in computational environmental audio analysis

  • Acoustic scene classification
  • Sound event detection and localization
  • Audio tagging
  • Challenges in real-life applications (e.g., rare events, overlapping sound events, weak labels)

Methods for computational environmental audio analysis

  • Signal processing methods
  • Machine learning methods
  • Auditory-motivated methods
  • Cross-disciplinary methods involving, e.g., acoustics, biology, psychology, geography, materials science, transports science

Resources, applications, and evaluation of computational environmental audio analysis

  • Publicly available datasets or software, taxonomies and ontologies, evaluation procedures
  • Applications
  • Description of systems submitted to the DCASE 2017 Challenge
