CfP: Special Issue on Statistical and Perceptual Audio Processing

Dear List -

As a last-minute reminder, the Jan 31 deadline is fast approaching for
the special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing
special issue we are editing on the topic of Statistical and
Perceptual Audio Processing (following on from the workshop we held at
ICSLP in Korea last year).

Please see the attached announcement, and please do submit your work
that considers auditory/perceptual processing problems by
incorporating a statistical approach.  It would be great to have as
wide a range of perspectives represented as possible!

If you have any questions about the special issue, feel free to
contact me (or any of my co-editors).

Thanks, and happy new year,

     Special Issue on Statistical and Perceptual Audio Processing

Current trends in audio analysis are strongly founded in statistical
principles, or on approaches that are influenced by empirically
derived, or perceptually motivated rules of auditory perception. These
approaches are orthogonal and new ideas that draw upon from both
perceptual and statistical principles are likely to result in superior
performance.  However, how these two approaches relate to each other
has not been thoroughly explored.

In this special issue we invite researchers to submit papers on
original and previously unpublished work on both approaches, and
especially on hybrid techniques that combine perceptual and
statistical principles, as applied to speech, music and audio
analysis. Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are
solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
 * Generalized audio analysis   * Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA)
 * Speech analysis              * Perceptual aspects of statistical algorithms,
 * Music analysis                 such as independent component analysis and
 * Audio classification           non-negative matrix factorization
 * Speech recognition           * Hybrid methods that use CASA-like cues in a
 * Signal separation              statistical framework, e.g. for separation
 * Multi-channel analysis         or recognition.
 * Theoretical and empirical results on the unification of statistical
   and perceptually based approaches.
