EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal  Processing
Special Issue on Informed Acoustic Source Separation

The complete call of papers is accessible at:


Short Description

The proposed topic of this special issue is informed acoustic source separation. As source separation has long become a field of interest in the signal processing community, recent works increasingly point out the fact that separation can only be reliably achieved in real-world use cases when accurate prior information can be successfully incorporated. Informed separation algorithms can be characterized by the fact that case-specific prior knowledge is made available to the algorithm for processing. In this respect, they contrast with blind methods for which no specific prior information is available.
Following on the success of the special session on the same topic in EUSIPCO 2012 at Bucharest, we would like to present recent methods, discuss the trends and perspectives of this domain and to draw the attention of the signal processing community to this important problem and its potential applications. We are interested in both methodological advances and applications.  Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

•    Sparse decomposition methods
•    Subspace learning methods for sparse decomposition
•    Non-negative matrix / tensor factorization
•    Robust principal component analysis
•    Probabilistic latent component analysis
•    Independent component analysis
•    Multidimensional component analysis
•    Multimodal source separation
•    Video-assisted source separation
•    Spatial audio object coding
•    Reverberant models for source separation
•    Score-informed source separation
•    Language-informed speech separation
•    User-guided source separation
•    Source separation informed by cover version
•    Informed source separation applied to speech, music or environmental signals
•    …
