         ********** CALL FOR PAPERS ***********

         2011 IEEE Workshop on Applications of
        Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics

                 Mohonk Mountain House
                  New Paltz, New York
                  October 16-19, 2011


The 2011 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio
and Acoustics (WASPAA'11) will be held at the Mohonk Mountain House in
New Paltz, New York, and is sponsored by the Audio and Acoustic Signal
Processing committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The
objective of this workshop is to provide an informal environment for
the discussion of problems in audio and acoustics and signal
processing techniques leading to novel solutions. Technical sessions
will be scheduled throughout the day. Afternoons will be left free for
informal meetings among workshop participants.

Papers describing original research and new concepts are solicited for
technical sessions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

Acoustic scenes
 * Source separation and localization
 * Signal enhancement: Echo cancellation, dereverberation,
  noise reduction, restoration
 * Microphone arrays
 * Multichannel audio acquisition and reproduction
 * Room acoustics

Music and environmental audio
 * Musical signal analysis: Segmentation, classification, transcription
 * Creation of musical sounds: Waveforms, instrument models, singing
 * Audio matching and retrieval
 * Audio effects

Audio coding
 * Waveform coding and parameter coding
 * Spatial audio coding
 * Sparse representations
 * Mobile devices
 * Digital rights

Hearing and perception
 * Auditory perception
 * Spatial hearing
 * Quality assessment
 * Hearing aids
