Call for participation: 3rd Community-Based Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2011)

Dear list,

We are happy to announce the launch of the SiSEC 2011 campaign. Compared to the two previous editions, the proposed datasets have become closer to real-world, including background noise and source movements.

Participation from researchers in the area of COMPUTATIONAL AUDITORY SCENE ANALYSIS is especially welcome.

                  *** FIRST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ***

                 3rd Community-Based Signal Separation
                          Evaluation Campaign
                              (SiSEC 2011)


                    Discussion deadline: May 2, 2011

Following the success of the two previous editions, we are glad to announce the launch of the SiSEC 2011 campaign for the evaluation of source separation algorithms. This campaign is open to anyone, whether you are an expert or a newcomer, you are interested in e.g. audio, biomedical or image processing, and your algorithm relies on prior information or not.

Three audio tasks and one biomedical task are proposed as a starting point:
- underdetermined speech and music mixtures
- mixtures of speech and real-world background noise
- speech mixtures under dynamic conditions
- separation of dependent EEG components

This is a community-based endeavor: all aspects of evaluation, including datasets and evaluation criteria, are to be agreed between the participants. We organizers will address the time-consuming issues of collecting and evaluating the results submitted by all participants.

As a first step, we are issuing a call for discussion. The purpose of this discussion is to comment and improve upon the above four tasks and to raise new tasks that could be of interest to the community. A second call for dataset proposal and a third call for the submission of separation results will follow.

Deadline: May 2, 2011

Please register to the mailing list sisec@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx at https://listes.irisa.fr/sympa/info/sisec.

If you wish to comment upon the proposed tasks or to propose a new task, please post your comments on the wiki http://sisec.wiki.irisa.fr/ (register at http://sisec.wiki.irisa.fr/tiki-register.php). We will then forward your comment to the mailing list and to other colleagues that might be interested in participating in this task.
