3-3-24 (2011-09-01) First International Workshop on Machine Listening in Multisource Environments (CHiME 2011) Firenze Italy

 First International Workshop on
Machine Listening in Multisource Environments (CHiME 2011)

           in conjunction with Interspeech 2011
           September 1st, 2011, Florence, Italy

Important Dates:
* Deadline for submission of papers: April 14th, 2011
* Notification of acceptance: June 2nd, 2011
* Final version: June 14th, 2011
* Workshop: September 1st, 2011

CHiME 2011 is an ISCA-approved satellite workshop of Interspeech 2011 that will consider
the challenge of developing machine listening applications for operation in multisource
environments, i.e. real-world conditions with acoustic clutter, where the number and
nature of the sound sources is unknown and changing over time. CHiME will bring together
researchers from a broad range of disciplines (computational hearing, blind source
separation, speech recognition, machine learning) to discuss novel and established
approaches to this problem. The cross-fertilisation of ideas will foster fresh approaches
that efficiently combine the complementary strengths of each research field.

The workshop will also be hosting the PASCAL CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition
Challenge. This is a binaural, multisource speech separation and recognition competition
supported by the EU PASCAL network and the UK EPSRC. If you wish to participate, please
visit the Challenge website (

Call for Papers:
We invite original submissions for oral or poster presentation during the workshop.
Relevant research topics include (but are not limited to),

* automatic speech recognition in multisource environments,
* acoustic event detection in multisource environments,
* sound source detection and tracking in multisource environments,
* music information retrieval in multisource environments,
* sound source separation or enhancement in multisource environments,
* robust feature extraction and classification in multisource environments,
* scene analysis and understanding for multisource environments.

Abstracts or full-papers are to be submitted by 14th April. After the workshop
participants will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a
peer-reviewed special issue of the journal 'Computer Speech and Language' on the theme of
Multisource Environments.
