Subject: Toronto Auditory Temporal Processing Symposium


Auditory Temporal Processing Symposium, May 27-29, 2005

An international interdisciplinary research symposium to translate
knowledge into clinical practice and techology design


Over the last decade, hearing scientists have realized that the temporal
properties of sound are the key to unlocking the mysteries of the most
complex feats of human listening, namely how we understand speech in
realistic, noisy, environments. Discovering how we process temporal
information is of urgent relevance to the development of ubiquitous
communication devices (e.g., computer audio), and new applications of
digital signal processing in the design of 'intelligent' hearing aids. The
symposium will celebrate our past research and launch a new era of
interdisciplinary research at the recently opened, CFI-funded, Center for
Research on Biological Communication Systems at UTM. The presenters
include faculty and students from different units at the University of
Toronto, faculty from three other Canadian universities, industry research
leaders, and the international researchers.

The first two days of the symposium will target academic and student

May 27: Basic scientific advances (Physiology, Psychology,

May 28: Real-world issues and translation of knowledge to practice and
technology design (Engineering, Audiology, Speech Pathology).

May 29: Overview of the major topics as continuing education for community
professionals (e.g., Audiologists, Engineers).
