DCASE Workshop 2020 and 2021 Call for proposals

, Tuomas Virtanen

DCASE Workshop is the flagship annual event related to the research area of Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events. This is an open call for proposals of DCASE Workshops to be organized in 2020 and 2021. Potential workshop organizers are invited to send a short (e.g. 2 pages) proposal by email to tuomas.virtanen@tuni.fi by April 7th 2019. The proposals will be evaluated and the workshop organizers chosen by the DCASE Steering Group.

The proposal should include at least the following information:

  • Proposed dates of the workshop. Please indicate if you are proposing to organize the workshop in 2020 or 2021. Dates in the autumn (e.g. October November) will be preferred, to match with the annual schedule of DCASE Challenges.
  • Location and tentative venue, and maximum number of participants. Information about any specific benefits that the location has (e.g. the about the local research community and industry). Please note that the previous workshop in Surrey was sold out with 150 participants, and we can expect the field to be growing, so having the capability to host more participants will be preferred.
  • List of organizing committee members who are committed to organizing the proposed workshop, and their roles. Brief description of their previous experience in organizing scientific events, DCASE related activities, and other relevant biographical information.

The workshop organizers are expected to take care of all responsibilities related to the workshop, including organizing the peer review of scientific papers. DCASE workshops are financially independent events, therefore the workshop organizers should take the financial responsibility of the workshop and arrange its finances.

Please note that DCASE Challenge is separate from the DCASE Workshop. Workshop organizers do not need to be involved with organizing the challenge, but will be requested to collaborate with challenge organizers, such that challenge results can be presented in the workshop.
