Re: [MUSIC-IR] Call for Expressions of Interest on AASP Challenge

Congratutaltion for setting this challenge. I'am sure it will represent a wonderfull scientific basement for researchers in this area.

So I catch the ball on the bounce and announce the creation of a Linkedin group dedicated to audio analytics : http://www.linkedin.com/groups/Audio-Analytics-4543653

It could be a good place to complement the discussion on real world applications of CASA.

Dear List,
[Apologies for cross-posting]

On behalf of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee, I am happy to announce a new challenge entitled: "Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events".

If you are interested in the challenge, and would like to participate in a discussion phase ahead of the formal call, please visit the challenge web page below and subscribe to the aasp-challenge mailing list.

On behalf of the challenge organisers,

Dan Stowell


        ÂCall for Expressions of Interest

             AASP Challenge:
   Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events

          ÂDiscussion: Jul-Sep 2012
             ÂCall: Nov 2012
           ÂDeadline: 31 March 2013
  ÂPresentation: At WASPAA 2013 (Oct 2013, New Paltz, NY, USA)


This AASP Challenge will be a public challenge for the evaluation of the performance of systems for the detection and classification of acoustic events and audio scenes. The challenge includes a set of tasks for the detection and classification of acoustic scenes and events and its goal is to provide a focus of attention for the scientific community in developing systems for computational auditory scene analysis (CASA) that will encourage sharing of ideas and improve the state of the art, potentially leading to the development of systems that achieve performance closer to that of humans.

This challenge will help the research community move forward by providing a focus for better defining the specific tasks, and will also provide incentive for researchers to actively pursue research on this field. Finally, it will offer a reference point for future systems developed to perform similar tasks and it will provide the community
with a high quality database for future research.

There will be a discussion phase where potential participants are invited to contribute their ideas, ending on 30th September 2012. The deadline for code submission is 31st March 2013. Results will be presented at a special session in WASPAA 2013 (http://www.waspaa.com/); participants are invited to present a poster at a special session. Also, authors of novel work are encouraged to submit their work as a regular paper at WASPAA 2013.
