Dear List - My apologies if you have already seen this announcement. We are organizing a workshop on different techniques in audio analysis and abstraction, to be held just before next year's ICSLP. DAn. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Call For Papers Announcing the 2004 ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on Statistical and Perceptual Audio Processing. 2 October 2004 - 3 October 2004, Jeju, Korea The 2004 Workshop on Statistical and Perceptual Audio Processing (SAPA2004) will be held at Jeju Island in Korea, as a satellite to the ICSLP 2004 Jeju Island, Korea. The objective of the one-and-a-half day workshop is to provide an informal environment for the discussion of different approaches to various problems in audio and speech processing. The workshop will run for one and a half days and comprise three sessions, focusing on statistical, perceptually-motivated and hybrid methods of processing speech and audio signals. The aim of the workshop is to bring together people who work on heuristic, or perceptually motivated methods of speech, music and audio analysis, and those that work on similar problems from a statistical angle. We hope that the participants of the workshop will be exposed to a broader perspective, and that this will help foster new research, or interesting variants to current approaches. Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics: * Generalized audio analysis * Speech analysis * Music analysis * Audio classification * Speech recognition * Signal separation * Multi-channel analysis We are also interested in work that relates CASA based methods to other statistical methods, e.g. ICA, and other methods that use CASA-like cues in a statistical framework, e.g. for separation or recognition. Papers may be submitted at the conference website: Manuscripts must be between 4 and 6 pages long, in standard double-column format. A link to formatting instructions is available at the workshop website, on the call for papers page. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. For additional details, please see the workshop webpages at, or contact the organizers. Paper submission will be enabled on 1 Jan 2004. Papers must be recieved by 15 March 2004. The results of the paper review will be posted by 1 May 2004.
