REMINDER: 1st Workshop on Learning the Semantics of Audio Signals (LSAS), Athens, December 6th, 2006

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]

This is a friendly reminder that the paper submission deadline for the
1st Workshop on Learning the Semantics of Audio Signals (LSAS) is only 3
weeks away: *** AUGUST 30th *** (a Wednesday).


1st Workshop on Learning the Semantics of Audio Signals (LSAS) 2006
part of 1st intl. conf. on Semantics And digital Media Technology (SAMT)
December 6th, 2006
Athens, Greece

The first international conference on Semantics And digital Media
Technology (SAMT) will be held from December 6th-8th in Athens, Greece
and targets to narrow the large disparity between the lowlevel
descriptors that can be computed automatically from multimedia content
and the richness and subjectivity of semantics in user queries and human
interpretations of audiovisual media - The Semantic Gap.

In the context of this conference the Workshop on Learning the Semantics
of Audio Signals (LSAS) focuses especially on researchers that are
working on semantics, description, representation and understanding of
music with the goal to intensify the exchange of ideas between the
different research communities involved, to provide an overview of
current activities in this area and to point out connections between them.
Therefore, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to the
following aspects with respect to music information retrieval systems:

- Audio signal processing and feature extraction
- Content-based audio retrieval
- Music perception, cognition, affect and emotions
- Music structure analysis
- Semantic audio description and analysis
- Ontologies for music and sound description
- Standards for audio content description
- Machine learning methods for feature extraction and mapping
- Personalization of music retrieval systems

While our main focus is on music data, we are also interested on work
related to other audio data such as speech.
