First announcement: Workshop on "Auditory Attention and Scene Analysis"

Workshop on "Auditory Attention and Scene Analysis" 2014
July 21 - 23 at the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study (HWK) in
Delmenhorst, Germany

*Information on the Web: http://www.h-w-k.de/index.php?id=2138

*Registration is not open yet, please send me an email if you are
interested in participating

As a successor of the workshops held 10 years ago in 2003 at HWK,
Germany, in 2010 at the UCL Gatsby computational neuroscience unit, UK,
and in 2011 again at HWK, Germany, this workshop further promotes and
facilitates interaction between researchers in speech and audio
processing, psychoacoustics and neurophysiology to stimulate joint
efforts towards a better understanding of acoustic information
processing in challenging conditions characterized by noise and
reverberation. We believe that a breakthrough in the understanding of
human Auditory Scene Analysis (ASA) and Computational Auditory Scene
Analysis (CASA) can only be expected by multidisciplinary collaboration.

To foster the interaction of distinguished international speakers and
young scientists it is planned to combine the workshop with a summer
school. Further information on the summer school including details on
how to apply will follow.
