Listening in the Wild
Animal and machine audition in multisource environments.
Workshop Fri 28th Aug 2015 @ QMUL (London, UK)
This workshop will bring together researchers in engineering disciplines (machine listening, signal processing, computer science) and biological disciplines (bioacoustics, ecology, perception and cognition), to discuss complementary perspectives on making sense of natural and everyday sound.
The workshop is free to attend, but you must register on our Eventbrite page: http://litw2015.eventbrite.co.
