Join Audio Day at the University of Surrey!
Audio related research projects include:
- Musical audio repurposing using source separation
- Spatial audio in the home
- Making sense of sounds
- 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.
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.
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.
