Sound and audio is a fundamental aspect of our everyday lives. We create or listen to musical sounds for pleasure or relaxation; we are informed or entertained by speech and music on radio or TV; and sounds from the real world can tell us what is happening around us.
This Audio Day brings together researchers and collaborators engaged in audio-related research projects linked to the University of Surrey, including projects on musical audio repurposing using source separation; spatial audio in the home; making sense of sounds; and creative commons audio. Many of these are collaborative projects, including members of the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP), Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR), Digital World Research Centre (DWRC) and Centre for Digital Economy (CoDE) at Surrey, plus many other partners including the University of Salford, the University of Southampton, BBC R&D, and Audio Analytic.
To open the Audio Day, we are particularly pleased to welcome Philip Nelson, Executive Chair of EPSRC, as our Keynote Speaker. The Day will include a wide range of talks from members of several of these groups and partners, plus the chance to find out more in posters and demos, an opportunity to network over lunch, and will end with a panel discussion on future directions for audio-related research.
The Audio Day is a free event, but registration is required, by 20 June 2018.
This event is supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 programme, and the IEEE United Kingdom and Ireland Signal Processing Chapter.
