Hi Gianni and others,

Concerning the Marine mammals technical challenge, I have few questions (sorry if naive or already explained) :

Is there only one class to detect (call vs no call?)

How do we open the masterlog.selections.txt files in Raven Lite?

Are Gunshot_Train_Days_01_thru_04 and UpCall_Train_Days_01_thru_04 train sets?

What/where are test sets?

Can you explain the contents (columns signification) of file WHALE_ICML2013_LAB_yourname_RUN_1.xls ?

Thanks for the organisation and for your responses

best regards

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION / paper / challenge

Workshop on Machine Learning for Bioacoustics @ 30th Int.Conf. on
Machine Learning
20-21 June 2013, Atlanta  or

Machine Learning (ML) will become central in biodiversity assessment.
This is a highly complex & challenging task, which involves the
application of both discriminative & generative approaches.
We are pleased to announce the CFP for the workshop Machine Learning
for Bioacoustics under the ICML conference, which is an annual, highly
regarded conference in the machine learning community.

This workshop is comprised of :
1. A regular paper submission regarding common bioacoustics topics
such as classification, localization, detection and others.
2. A technical challenge on avian and/or marine mammal data, including
a prize for the winners.

Important Dates :
Regular paper deadline: 4/30
Author notification: 5/10
Technical Challenge deadline: 5/15
Publication of results: 5/22
Submission of working notes: 5/30

Keynote speakers will provide informative presentations regarding
state of the art methodologies in both the bioacoustic and machine
learning fields.

The workshop organizers are :

Pr. Y. LeCun - Computational and Biological Learning Lab at New York
University, USA
Pr. C. Clark - Director of Bioacoustics Research Program at Cornell
University, NY, USA
Pr. H. Glotin - Institut Universitaire de France, CNRS LSIS and USTV, FR
Dr. X. Halkias - CNRS LSIS and USTV, FR
Dr. Peter Dugan - Cornell University, NY, USA
