Dear list, We are happy to announce the Winter School on Hearing Acoustics: Models,=20 Machine Learning, Applications, and Virtual Reality, will take place=20 from 13.03.2023 =E2=80=93 14.03.2023 at the University of Oldenburg, Germ= any=20 (for details, see www.hearing-acoustics.de). The Winter School provides a great opportunity for Master and PhD=20 students to broaden their understanding in several fields required in=20 cutting-edge hearing research. It will give you insights into the=20 current research addressed in the collaborative research centre (CRC)=20 Hearing acoustics (coordinator: Prof. Dr. Volker Hohmann) at the=20 University of Oldenburg - School of Medicine and Health sciences =E2=80=93= Dept.=20 of Medical Physics and Acoustics (see www.hearing-acoustics.de)=20 dedicated to advance our understanding of auditory perception in complex=20 acoustic environments (CAEs) and to improve acoustic communication in=20 such difficult environments. The PIs of the CRC, including renowned experts in the fields of =E2=80=A2 Audio signal processing & machine learning (Bernd Meyer, J=C3=B6= rg L=C3=BCcke, J=C3=B6rn Anem=C3=BCller, Simon Doclo, Steven van de Par, Volker Hohma= nn), =E2=80=A2 Auditory modeling and psychoacoustics (Jan Rennies-Hochmuth, Ka= i Siedenburg, Stephan Ewert, Steven van de Par, Thomas Brand), =E2=80=A2 Hearing aids and audiology (Anna Warzybok, Birger Kollmeier, Kirsten Wagener, Volker Hohmann), and =E2=80=A2 Virtual acoustics (Bernhard Seeber, Mathias Blau, Michael Vorl=C3= =A4nder, Stephan Ewert), will give tutorial talks closely related to their project within the CRC. Accompanying the tutorial talks, hands-on exercises will be offered to=20 gain experience with modern tools (e.g., auditory models, immersive=20 hearing device, binaural localization algorithms, room acoustics=20 software) that have been developed or applied within the CRC for=20 creating, assessing and analyzing communication situation in virtual=20 CAEs with and without hearing supportive algorithms/devices. The Winter School is also a great opportunity to meet with other=20 students and to discuss your own research and ideas with leading=20 experts. Since many aspects of hearing research are covered by this=20 Winter School, Master and PhD students can try out different subjects,=20 which may give impulses for planning their next career steps. The Winter School is free from registration fees. The CRC offers 10=20 stipends for international Master and PhD students and national Master=20 students (for more details, please see below). For further details about the Winter School, please see below or visit=20 www.hearing-acoustics.de. We are looking forward to see you in Oldenburg! Volker Hohmann, Birger Kollmeier & the organization team ***************** About the CRC =E2=80=9CHearing Acoustics=E2=80=9C The common goal of the different research projects in the CRC is to=20 quantitatively characterize the benefit of hearing devices in real-life=20 environments considering complex auditory scenes and audio-visual as=20 well as user-device interactions. Another key element is the transfer of=20 the obtained insights into applications and future hearing devices. The=20 CRC and the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics provide an=20 attractive research environment within international teams and most=20 advanced research facilities. Preliminary agenda The talks and hands-on exercises are clustered in three main sessions=20 which are related to the three research areas of the CRC: Session 1: 13.03, Monday morning: Models Session 2: 13.03, Monday afternoon: Algorithms Session 3: 14.03, Tuesday morning: Applications Selected talks (preliminary) =E2=80=A2 The immersive hearing device: Closing the loop between hearing = aid, environment and listener (Volker Hohmann) =E2=80=A2 Modelling hearing loss and the benefit from hearing devices usi= ng machine learning (Birger Kollmeier) =E2=80=A2 Deep neural networks for modeling human speech perception (Bern= d Meyer) =E2=80=A2 Acoustic foundations of musical instrument identification (Kai Siedenburg) =E2=80=A2 Headphones =E2=80=93 Measurement and calibration (Michael Vorl=C3= =A4nder) =E2=80=A2 Communication in virtual audio-visual scenes (Bernhard Seeber) =E2=80=A2 The Binaural Speech Intelligibility Model (Tom Brand, Jan Rennies-Hochmuth) =E2=80=A2 Deep neural networks for signal processing applications (J=C3=B6= rn Anem=C3=BCller) Fees, Stipends & Credit Points: The Winter School is free from registration fees. The CRC offers 10 stipends for international Master and PhD students and=20 national Master students. International master and doctoral students and national master students=20 in the fields of acoustics, physics, bio-medical or electrical=20 engineering, hearing research, technical audiology or related=20 disciplines can apply for a stipend. Interested candidates should send a=20 brief motivation letter, a CV and copies of their diplomas to=20 volker.hohmann@xxxxxxxx by 13.03.2023. Participating students can receive 1 ECTS credit point. A certificate of=20 attendance will also be provided. Contact: Volker Hohmann (Stipends, for details see section Fees, Stipends and=20 Credit Points) Thomas Biberger (for all questions about organisation) Venue: The Winter School will take place in Oldenburg, Germany. The location is=20 at the NeSSY building (W30) at the Wechloy campus of the Oldenburg=20 University.
