Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing

Technical Committee - EDICS terms 

NOTE: The Technical Committee's EDICS list is derived from the Society's Unified EDICS list. You can view the Society's complete Unified EDICS ist and EDICS list approval process on the Unified EDICS page.


The AUD EDICS terms of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing covers theory and methods for processing signals representing audio, speech, music and the associated analysis and modeling of acoustic environments and scenes. This includes analysis, synthesis, enhancement, transformation, classification and interpretation of such signals as well as the design, development, and evaluation of associated signal processing algorithms and systems. Machine learning, deep learning, pattern analysis and graphical models applied to any of the above areas are also welcome. 

Specific topics of interest in the audio processing domain include: Modeling of acoustic environments; auditory modeling and hearing aids; acoustic beamforming and source localization; classification of acoustic scenes; speaker separation; speaker diarization; active noise control and echo cancellation; speech enhancement; de-reverberation; concealment; perceptual modeling and coding of audio and speech; quality assessment; spatial audio recording and reproduction; bioacoustics. Music signals analysis, synthesis and modification; music information retrieval; audio for multimedia and joint audio-video processing; and implementation aspects ranging from system architecture to fast algorithms. 

The following table lists all EDICS terms:

EDICS Notations:
1. Bolded text represent the EDICS major topic category
2. Blue shaded rows represents EDICS that can be selected as paper's topic.
3. Non-shaded rows represents sub-topic EDICSs for those above them.
