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: *Registration is not open yet, please send me an email if you are interested in participating Objectives: 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. Themes: Human behavioral studies on Auditory attention / scene analysis Neurophysiology of auditory attention / scene analysis using animal models Human attentional network as revealed by neuroimaging Computational approaches in auditory scene analysis Speakers: Theme 1: John Middlebrooks Bernard Laback Dan Tollin Daniel Pressnitzer (invited) Theme 2: Catherine Carr Maneesh Sahani Jennifer Bizley Theme 3: Alexandra Bendixen Andreas Büchner/Mareike Finke Edmund Lalor Theme 4: Steve Colburn (tentative) Sue Denham Jörg Lücke Zhiyao Duan The workshop is funded by the coordinated research project "The active auditory system" (SFB/TRR31), the centre for hearing research Oldenburg/Hanover, IRO University of Oldenburg (planned) and HWK The registration of ¤400 (¤200 for students) includes workshop materials, refreshments and all meals. Registration details will follow. -- --------------------------------------------------------- Prof. Dr. Volker Hohmann Department für Medizinische Physik und Akustik Fakultät VI Universität Oldenburg 26111 Oldenburg, Germany Tel.
