Announcement and Invitation: Workshop on Sounds and Sound Processing in Natural and Artificial Systems - 20/21 February 2012, Plymouth UK
Making Sense of Sounds: Workshop on Sounds and Sound Processing in Natural and Artificial Systems - 20/21 February 2012, Plymouth UK
How much can we learn about what is going on in the world simply by listening?
Living organisms constantly generate sonic cues about their presence as they move and interact with the world around them. What can we tell about their behaviour or state of mind through the sounds they emit or modulate as they act and interact with the environment?
This workshop will discuss many aspects of sound processing, including sound perception in natural systems (humans and animals), the use of sounds to probe the environment (bio-sonar), computational modelling of auditory processing, and the development of bio-inspired real-time sound processing systems.
Submissions are invited that address, but are not restricted to, the following topics:
â Listening in time
â Listening in the real world
â Listening to movement
â Neural basis for auditory perception
â Bio-inspired hardware devices and systems
Submissions may take the form of a talk, poster or demo; please indicate your preferred medium.
