AASP TC Call for Organizing New Challenges

Three years after its launch, the 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
-    the CHiME Challenge on speech separation and recognition in
domestic environments
-    the D-Case Challenge on detection and classification of acoustic
scenes and events (http://c4dm.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/sceneseventschallenge/)
-    the REVERB Challenge on single- and multichannel speech
dereverberation (http://reverb2014.dereverberation.com/)

The coming year will see the unravelling of the ACE Challenge on acoustic characterization of environments (http://www.ace-challenge.org/), 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 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 AASP TC Challenges Subcommittee Emmanuel Vincent, Chair
