Papers are solicited for the 2010 Workshop on Statistical and Perceptual
Audition (SAPA2010), to be held in Makuhari, Japan, as a satellite
to Interspeech 2010.
Following on from the successes of SAPA2004 (in Jeju, Korea),
SAPA2006 (in Pittsburgh, USA),
and SAPA2008 (in Brisbane, Australia),
the objective of the SAPA2010 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
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
workshop will be exposed to a broader perspective, and that this will
help foster new research and interesting variants on current
Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited
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
double-column format. Accepted papers will be published in the
Papers must be recieved by 14 May 2010 (two weeks after the
deadline). The results of the paper review will be posted by 2 July
(same as Interspeech).
