Audio forensics is the topic for the AES 54th International Conference, set to be held from June 12th - 14th 2014 at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury hotel in London.
The Conference will explore techniques, technologies and advancements across the field of audio forensics, and offer a platform for sharing research related to the forensic application of speech/signal processing, acoustical analyses, audio authentication and the examination of methodologies and best practices. Mark Huckvale and Jeff M. Smith are chairpersons for the event.
This will be the fifth AES event dedicated to the technical developments and practical approaches arising in the world of audio forensics, allowing researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and foster new approaches to current challenges.
The list of tutorials includes Automatic Speaker Recognition with Degraded and Enhanced Speech, Dereverberation Algorithms in a Nutshell - a signal processing introduction, Digital Audio Authenticity and Speech Intelligibility.
Each day will also feature several paper presentation sessions on subjects such as Forensic Speaker Comparison, Reverberation and Room Acoustics, Audio Authenticity, Speech Enhancement and Intelligibility, Forensic Musicology and Gunshot Analysis.Article continues below
”We are really pleased with the growth and development of our Audio Forensics-related programs and events over the past decade. For the audio engineering community, these forensic specialists continue to push the boundaries of our understanding of sound in our everyday lives," said AES executive director Bob Moses.
“Some of the most important recordings are ones that were never intended to be captured or that take place under unimaginable circumstances. The AES and its sponsors are dedicated to promoting the science and technologies that make audio forensics work so valuable to us all.”
