Dear Bioacoustics list, The DCASE workshop below may be of interest to anyone 
working on computational analysis of sound scenes and events. Please feel free 
to forward to any colleagues who may be interested. Best wishes, Mark Plumbley


DCASE 2018 Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and 

 19-20 November 2018, Woking, Surrey, UK

 ** Paper submission: 31 July 2018 **

DCASE 2018 Workshop is the third workshop on Detection and Classification of 
Acoustic Scenes and Events, being organized for the third time in conjunction 
with the DCASE challenge. We aim to bring together researchers from many 
different universities and companies with interest in the topic, and provide 
the opportunity for scientific exchange of ideas and opinions.

The technical program will include invited speakers on the topic of 
computational everyday sound analysis and recognition, and oral and poster 
presentations of accepted papers. In addition, a special poster session will be 
dedicated to the DCASE 2018 challenge entries.

The results of the Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events 
(DCASE) challenge 2018 will also be announced at the workshop.

** Call for papers **

We invite submissions on the topics of computational analysis of acoustic 
scenes and sound events, including but not limited to:

Tasks in computational environmental audio analysis
 - Acoustic scene classification
 - Sound event detection and localization
 - Audio tagging
 - Challenges in real-life applications (e.g., rare events, overlapping sound 
events, weak labels)

Methods for computational environmental audio analysis
 - Signal processing methods
 - Machine learning methods
 - Auditory-motivated methods
 - Cross-disciplinary methods involving, e.g., acoustics, biology, psychology, 
geography, materials science, transports science

Resources, applications, and evaluation of computational environmental audio 
 - Publicly available datasets or software, taxonomies and ontologies, 
evaluation procedures
 - Ethics, privacy, responsible research
 - Applications
 - Description of systems submitted to the DCASE 2018 Challenge

** Submission **

Papers are to be formatted as 4+1 pages. Papers are maximum 5 pages, including 
all text, figures, and references, with the 5th page containing only references.

Paper templates and the submission system will be available in early July 2018.

** Venue **

WWF Living Planet Centre, Woking, Surrey, UK

** Important dates:

Paper submission: 31 July 2018

Notification of acceptance: 17 Sept 2018

Workshop: 19-20 November 2018
