---------------------------------------------- 2nd International Workshop on Machine Listening in Multisource Environments (CHiME 2013) in conjunction with ICASSP 2013 June 1, 2013, Vancouver, Canada ---------------------------------------------- *PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME AND REGISTRATION* Registration deadline: May 18, 2013 *OVERVIEW* 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. It 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 It 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 *REGISTRATION* To register, please visit The registration fee is 35 UK pounds and includes admission to the sessions, electronic proceedings, buffet lunch, and tee and coffee breaks. *VENUE* The workshop is taking place at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, 655 Burrard Street -- close to the ICASSP 2013 venue -- on the day after ICASSP finishes, Saturday 1st June. Information about accommodation and how to get to and from downtown Vancouver can be found on the main ICASSP website: See you in Vancouver. Best regards, CHiME Organising Committee
