Dear colleagues, Hendrik Kayser and Jörn Anemüller from Oldenburg have proposed a new evaluation track for the separation of "head-geometry mixtures of two speech sources in real environments, impinging from many directions". For more details, see This evaluation should be of interest to many of you. If you're considering to participate, please have you say on the above wiki and on the mailing list sisec@xxxxxxxx Best regards, -- Emmanuel Vincent METISS Project-Team IRISA-INRIA Campus de Beaulieu, 35042 Rennes cedex, France Phone: +332 9984 2269 - Fax: +332 9984 7171 Web: Emmanuel Vincent wrote: > Dear colleagues, > > We would like to remind you the July 25th deadline for evaluation > proposals to be run as part of the 1st Community-based Signal Separation > Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2008). > > Two evaluations for audio data have been proposed so far on > > > We encourage you to > - have your say about these proposals and tell us if you plan to > participate > - propose evaluations for other types of data (e.g. biomedical, images, > telecoms, etc) > > For more information, see > > Best regards, > > Emmanuel Vincent, Shoko Araki and Pau Bofill > > > >> *** FIRST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *** >> >> 1st Community-based Signal Separation >> Evaluation Campaign >> (SiSEC 2008) >> >> >> >> Evaluation proposal deadline: July 25, 2008 >> >> >> Do you have an algorithm for source separation of e.g. audio, >> biomedical, astromomical or image data?
