LISTENING IN THE WILD: Animal and machine hearing in multisource environments
   Research workshop, QMUL, London
   Tue 25th June, 10am-5pm

* How do animals recognise sounds in noisy multisource environments?
* How should machines recognise sounds in noisy multisource environments?

This workshop will bring together researchers in engineering disciplines (machine listening, signal processing, computer science) and biological disciplines (bioacoustics, ecology, perception and cognition), to discuss these complementary perspectives on audition.

The workshop is free to attend, but you must register on our Eventbrite page <http://listeninginthewild.eventbrite.co.uk>.
