2001 IEEE Workshop on Applications of
Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics

Mohonk Mountain House
New Paltz, New York
October 21-24, 2001

The 2001 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA'01) will be held at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York. The workshop is sponsored by the Audio & Electroacoustics committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The objective of the two-and-a-half day workshop is to provide an informal environment for the discussion of problems in audio and acoustics and the signal processing techniques applied to these problems. Technical sessions will be scheduled in the morning and before and after dinner. Afternoons will be left free for outdoor activities or informal meetings among workshop participants.

Papers describing research and new concepts are solicited for technical sessions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

Active Echo and Noise Control Audio Coding
Aids for Auditory Impairment Room Acoustics
Array Processing for Transducers Sound Analysis and Synthesis
Audio Content Analysis and Processing Spatial Perception and Processing
Audio Perception and Quality Evaluation Sound Editing, Restoration,
    and Enhancement
Audio Source Separation
   (Auditory Scene Analysis)
Surround Sound, 3-D Sound
Electronic Music Virtual Acoustics
Internet Audio and Applications Time-Frequency Analysis
   and Filterbanks
Audio Watermarking, Techniques
   and Countermeasures
VLSI Hardware and Software
   for Audio & Telecommunications
