Call for papers SAPA 2008



ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on
*Statistical And Perceptual Audition*
SAPA2008

21 September 2008, Brisbane, Australia

http://www.sapa2008.org


Papers are solicited for the 2008 Workshop on Statistical and Perceptual
Audition (SAPA2008), to be held in Brisbane, Australia as a satellite to Interspeech
2008 < http://www.interspeech2008.org/>.


Following on from the successful SAPA2004 <http://www.sapa2004.org>
and SAPA2006 <http://www.sapa2006.org > workshops, the objective of the
SAPA2008 workshop is to bring together researchers considering
perceptually-motivated problems in sound and speech analysis and
understanding, employing statistical and machine learning tools.

There is a wide area of overlap between more heuristic models of human
auditory function and purely pattern recognition approaches that are
independent of human audition; SAPA aims to be the forum for
presentation and discussion of this promising and expanding field.

This will be a one-day workshop with a limited number of oral
presentations, chosen for breadth and provocation, and an informal
atmosphere to promote discussion. We hope that the participants in the
workshop will be exposed to a broader perspective, and that this will
help foster new research and interesting variants on current approaches.

Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited on,
but not limited to, the following topics:

* Generalized audio analysis
* Speech analysis
* Music analysis
* Audio classificationy
* Scene analysis
* Signal separation
* Speech recognition
* Multi-channel analysis

In all cases, preference will be given to papers that clearly involve
both perceptually-defined or perceptually-related problems, and
statistical or machine-learning based solutions.

Manuscripts must be between 4 and 6 pages long, in standard Interspeech
double-column format. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings.

Papers must be recieved by 21 April 2006 (two weeks after the Interspeech
deadline). The results of the paper review will be posted by 16 June 2008
(same as Interspeech).
