It is our pleasure to announce that the registration for the 3rd workshop on Speech in Noise is now open. Attendants can register at:
The registration fee is GBP 36.-
The workshop on Speech in Noise: Intelligibility and Quality proved successful for two years in a row now.
Each previous workshop attracted more than seventy-five people with backgrounds in engineering,
telecommunication, neuroscience, psychoacoustics, psychology and audiology. The workshops' highly
informal atmosphere successfully contributed to a fertile exchange of ideas between industry and academia.
After London in 2009 and Amsterdam in 2010, the workshop will revive again in 2011 on the 6th and 7th of
January, in Lyon, France. In accordance with its traditional spirit, the 2011 issue will cover a very broad
range of “speech-in-noise” topics including signal processing, cochlear processing, auditory scene analysis,
phonetics, and linguistics.
In the afternoon of the 6th of January, we will have a poster-session, where all participants can present and
discuss their work. In the evening, this session will be followed by a special guest lecture by Stephan Launer
(Phonak, Switserland) and an opening reception.
The 7th of January will be filled with oral presentations covering all major scientific aspects of speech-in-noise. Among the speakers that are already confirmed as of today one finds:Martin Cooke (IKERBASQUE, Spain), Stuart Rosen (University College London, UK), Christian Lorenzi (Paris Descartes University, France), John Culling (Cardiff University, UK) & Mathieu Lavandier (Ecole Nationale des Travaux Publics de l'État, France) Fanny Meunier (Centre de Recherche en Neurosciences, France), Bas van Dijk (Cochlear Ltd, Belgium), Mike Brookes & Mark Huckvale (CLEAR Labs, UK), Jerker Rönnberg (University of Linköping, Sweden), Jonas Obleser (Max Planck Institute, Germany) . The day will be closed with a tribute to the man who introduced the 'cocktail party phenomenon', Colin Cherry.
The workshop is sponsored by Research in Motion, Cochlear, la Societé Française d'Acoustique, European Research Council, l'école nationale desTravaux Publics de l'Etat, and l'Université de Lyon I.
The organizing committee: Fanny Meunier, Michel Hoen, Mathieu Lavandier & Gaston Hilkhuysen
