CHiME 2013: June 1st, 2013 - Call for participation

              2nd International Workshop on
Machine Listening in Multisource Environments (CHiME 2013)

             in conjunction with ICASSP 2013
             June 1, 2013, Vancouver, Canada




Registration deadline: May 18, 2013


CHiME 2013 will consider the challenge of developing machine listening
applications for operation in multisource environments, i.e. real-world
conditions with acoustic clutter, where the number and nature of the
sound sources is unknown and changing over time. It will bring together
researchers from a broad range of disciplines (computational hearing,
blind source separation, speech recognition, machine learning) to
discuss novel and established approaches to this problem. The
cross-fertilisation of ideas will foster fresh approaches that
efficiently combine the complementary strengths of each research field.


The workshop will feature two keynote speakers:
* Daniel P.W. Ellis, Columbia University
* Steven J. Rennie, IBM

It will also be hosting the 2nd CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition
Challenge, that is a two-microphone multisource speech separation and
recognition challenge supported by the IEEE AASP, MLSP and SLTC
Technical Committees. To find out more, please visit

The registration fee is 35 UK pounds and includes admission to the
sessions, electronic proceedings, buffet lunch, and tee and coffee breaks.


The workshop is taking place at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, 655 Burrard
Street -- close to the ICASSP 2013 venue -- on the day after ICASSP
finishes, Saturday 1st June. Information about accommodation and how to
get to and from downtown Vancouver can be found on the main ICASSP website:

See you in Vancouver.
