Dear bioacoustics-l,

The IEEE organises a series of technical challenges in audio processing.
(I was involved in one recently, the "D-CASE" challenge.) There might be
interest in running a bioacoustic challenge? See below.

Best wishes

Three years after its launch, the IEEE AASP TC Challenges series has
achieved its goal of stimulating ground-breaking approaches to hot
topics in Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing. The challenges run so
far have been great successes, leading to unprecedented participation,
new publicly available datasets, and highly attended special sessions
and workshops:

  * the CHiME Challenge
    <> on speech
    separation and recognition in domestic environments
  * the D-Case Challenge
    <> on detection
    and classification of acoustic scenes and events
  * the REVERB Challenge <> on
    single- and multichannel speech dereverberation

The coming year will see the unravelling of the ACE Challenge
<> on acoustic characterization of
environments, and future challenges are now eagerly awaited by academics
and industrials.

In order to pursue this endeavor, we are issuing a call for expressions
of interest in organizing new challenges. This is an open call with no
deadline. Prospective organizers should provide a brief description of
the challenge, the planned test data and evaluation methodology, and
their value to the community. Challenges at the crossroads of other
communities such as speech processing or machine learning are especially
welcome. For more details, see

The IEEE AASP TC Challenges Subcommittee will help organizers run a
successful Challenge by providing scientific and organizational
feedback, sharing industrial sponsorship contacts, and awarding official
prizes to the most reproducible challenges entries.

We are looking forward to your proposals!

On behalf of the IEEE AASP TC Challenges Subcommittee
Emmanuel Vincent, Chair
