[AUDITORY] 7th CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition Challenge (CHiME-7) and Workshop

    7th CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition Challenge (CHiME-7)
                           Launch Date: February 1st, 2023
                  Workshop: Dublin, August 25th, 2023 (TBC)

Dear colleague,

It gives us great pleasure to pre-announce the 7th CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition Challenge (CHiME-7)


The CHiME-7 challenge will be composed of two separate tasks:

The first task focuses on distant automatic speech transcription and segmentation with multiple recording devices, especially on generalization across array topologies.
The second task focuses on unsupervised domain adaptation for conversational speech enhancement. It involves learning to suppress noise in multi-speaker conversational speech recordings using out-of-domain labeled data and in-domain unlabeled data.
For further task details, see the CHiME Challenge website, https://www.chimechallenge.org/


CHiME-7 Challenge submissions will be presented at a 1-day workshop on August 25th that will be organised as a satellite event of Interspeech 2023 (details TBC). The workshop will also be accepting non-challenge papers on related topics. For further details,  https://www.chimechallenge.org/current/workshop/


If you are considering participating, please join the CHiME Google group for discussions and further announcements.
