---------------------------------------------- 2nd International Workshop on Machine Listening in Multisource Environments (CHiME 2013) in conjunction with ICASSP 2013 June 1, 2013, Vancouver, Canada http://spandh.dcs.shef.ac.uk/chime_workshop/ ---------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT DATES * Deadline for submission of papers: January 15, 2013 * Notification of acceptance: February 18, 2013 * Final version: March 18, 2013 * Workshop: June 1, 2013 OVERVIEW Following the success of the 1st CHiME Workshop in 2011, we are organizing a second edition that will be held in conjunction with ICASSP 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. CHiME 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. HIGHLIGHTS The workshop will feature two keynote speakers: * Daniel P.W. Ellis, Columbia University * Steven J. Rennie, IBM The workshop 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 http://spandh.dcs.shef.ac.uk/chime_challenge. We are envisaging a special issue of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine to which the authors of the best workshop papers will be invited to submit. CALL FOR PAPERS We invite original submissions in the form of either extended abstracts or full papers. Relevant research topics include (but are not limited to): * automatic speech recognition in multisource environments, * acoustic event detection in multisource environments, * sound source detection and tracking in multisource environments, * music information retrieval in multisource environments, * sound source separation or enhancement in multisource environments, * robust feature extraction and classification in multisource environments, * scene analysis and understanding for multisource environments.
