[ Last call for papers for NIPS4B 2013 - Apologies for multiple
copies. Please forward to colleagues who might be interested ]

1st Neural Information Processing for Bioacoustics wkp / joint to NIPS 2013
Nevada, december 10th

* Submission deadline (extended abstract of 1 page): October 23th 2013
* Acceptance decisions: October 30th
* Camera ready paper due (NIPS format): November 23th

- Objectives :
Bioacoustic data science aims at analyzing and modeling animal sounds
for neuroethology / biodiversity assessment. Given the complexity of
the collected data along with the different taxonomies and species and
environmental contexts, it requires original approaches.
The increased expectations from bioacoustic research have been
coincident with a dramatic increase in the spatial, temporal and
spectral scales of acoustic data collection efforts.
One of the most promising strategies concerns neural information
processing and advanced machine learning.

Some representative data for representation processing /
classification validation are given on the nips4b web site, including
two challenges :

* Bird classification challenge :, ends 20th nov.(also on Kaggle)

* Whale song analysis challenge :, ends 20th nov.

* Biosonar session (non restrictive topic) :

Topic of interest includes:
* Multilabel learning
* Semi-supervised classification
* Structuration of animal sound (insect / bird / mammals / ...)
* Passive acoustic tracking
* Learning to sing (model of),...
