Call for papers

Audio Engineering Society 42nd Conference on Semantic Audio
Ilmenau, Germany, July 22-24, 2011
Cochairs: Karlheinz Brandenburg and Mark Sandler, Email: 42nd_chair@xxxxxxx

Semantic Audio refers to the research and development targeted toward content-based handling of digital audio recordings. The rapid evolution of digital audio technologies, audio compression, and streaming has significantly changed the way digital audio is created, processed, and consumed today. New audio content can be produced at a very low cost. Thus the sheer amount of available audio data grows more and more each day. Content-based management of audio recordings is essential to enable efficient use of these data. Aside from audio retrieval and recommendation techniques, the semantics of audio signals are also becoming more important in object-oriented audio coding, editing, and processing. Recent product releases demonstrate this, but many more innovative functionalities are becoming available.

This conference will give a broad overview of the state of the art and address many of the new scientific disciplines involved in this still-emerging field. Our purpose is to continue fostering this line of interdisciplinary research. This is reflected by the wide variety of invited speakers presenting at the conference. Talks will be given by Karlheinz Brandenburg, Dan Barry, Masataka Goto, Meinard Mueller, Christof Faller, Juergen Herre, Jay LeBoeuf, Matija Marolt, Markus Cremer, Bjoern Schuller, and Sebastian Stober. For an up-to-date list of the invited talks, please refer to the conference website at www.aes.org/events/42/.

Paper proposals should consist of title, abstract (60 to 120 words), and précis (500 to 750 words) to be submitted by February 11, 2011 at www.aes.org/42nd_authors, which you can visit for more information and complete instructions anytime after November 9, 2010. We welcome contributions in all relevant areas, including, but not limited to the topics listed below. The précis should describe the work performed, methods employed, conclusion(s), and significance of the paper. Titles and abstracts should follow the guidelines found at https://secure.aes.org/authors/guidelines/. Acceptance of papers will be determined by the 42th Conference paper committee based on an assessment of the abstract and the précis. Accepted authors will be notified by March 15, 2011. Complete manuscripts of a maximum of 10 pages (3000 words) must be submitted by April 15, 2011.
