ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on *Statistical And Perceptual Audition* SAPA2008 21 September 2008, Brisbane, Australia Papers are solicited for the 2008 Workshop on Statistical and Perceptual Audition (SAPA2008), to be held in Brisbane, Australia as a satellite to Interspeech 2008 <>. Following on from the successful SAPA2004 <> and SAPA2006 < > workshops, the objective of the SAPA2008 workshop is to bring together researchers considering perceptually-motivated problems in sound and speech analysis and understanding, employing statistical and machine learning tools. There is a wide area of overlap between more heuristic models of human auditory function and purely pattern recognition approaches that are independent of human audition; SAPA aims to be the forum for presentation and discussion of this promising and expanding field. This will be a one-day workshop with a limited number of oral presentations, chosen for breadth and provocation, and an informal atmosphere to promote discussion. We hope that the participants in the workshop will be exposed to a broader perspective, and that this will help foster new research and interesting variants on 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 classificationy * Scene analysis * Signal separation * Speech recognition * Multi-channel analysis In all cases, preference will be given to papers that clearly involve both perceptually-defined or perceptually-related problems, and statistical or machine-learning based solutions. Manuscripts must be between 4 and 6 pages long, in standard Interspeech double-column format. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. Papers must be recieved by 21 April 2006 (two weeks after the Interspeech deadline). The results of the paper review will be posted by 16 June 2008 (same as Interspeech).
